Bridging Europe and Asia, Turkey offers a spicy blend of east and west in its vibrant markets, architectural splendour (including in Antalya, pictured) and delicious cuisine. Visitors are drawn to the second-century Roman city of Aspendos, the historic treasures of Istanbul, the ancient Roman baths of Hieropolis, the whirling dervishes of Konya and the grand Ionia's Temple of Diana in Ephesus.
Warnings: While Turkey's security situation is largely stable, Canadians are advised to exercise a high degree of caution because of the ongoing threat of terrorist attacks. Avoid non-essential travel to Van province, where earthquakes continue to wrack the region. And, stay away from the Iraqi border.
