As an avid traveler, I've had the pleasure of experiencing all-inclusive resorts across Europe and Asia. Turkey, with its unique blend of Eastern and Western influences, has become one of my favorite destinations. In this article, I'll be comparing Turkey's all-inclusive resorts to those in Europe and Asia, using a custom scorecard to provide a comprehensive evaluation. The categories include Accommodations, Dining, Activities & Entertainment, Family-Friendliness, and Value for Money.
Category 1: Accommodations Turkey: 9/10 Europe: 8/10 Asia: 9/10
Turkish resorts boast a diverse range of elegant accommodations, blending modern design with traditional charm. Europe offers a mix of contemporary and historic options, while Asia is known for its luxurious and culturally inspired resorts. All three destinations provide top-notch accommodations, with Turkey and Asia having a slight edge.
Category 2: Dining Turkey: 9/10 Europe: 10/10 Asia: 8/10
When it comes to dining, Turkey offers a rich culinary experience, combining Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavors. European resorts excel in this category, showcasing a vast array of international and regional cuisines. Asia, although providing delicious options, can be more limited in variety when compared to Turkey and Europe.
Category 3: Activities & Entertainment Turkey: 9/10 Europe: 8/10 Asia: 8/10
Turkish all-inclusive resorts offer a wide range of activities, including water sports, cultural experiences, and entertainment programs. Europe and Asia also have their fair share of leisure options, but Turkey stands out for its unique blend of Eastern and Western influences, providing a distinct variety of activities.
Category 4: Family-Friendliness Turkey: 10/10 Europe: 8/10 Asia: 9/10
Turkey excels in family-friendly offerings, with many resorts providing dedicated children's facilities, kids' clubs, and engaging activities. Asia also performs well in this category, while Europe, although providing family-friendly options, often caters more towards adult travelers.
Category 5: Value for Money Turkey: 10/10 Europe: 7/10 Asia: 8/10
Turkey's all-inclusive resorts provide exceptional value for money, offering luxurious experiences at competitive prices. Asia also provides good value, but European resorts can be comparatively more expensive, making Turkey the clear winner in this category.
Turkey's all-inclusive resorts offer a perfect blend of luxurious accommodations, delectable dining, diverse activities, and family-friendly options, all at an incredible value. While Europe and Asia each have their unique appeal, Turkey stands out as a top destination for travelers seeking the ultimate all-inclusive experience. So, if you're planning your next vacation and want to immerse yourself in a rich cultural experience combined with unparalleled hospitality, Turkey should be at the top of your list.
Food in Turkey
Food: Before you head out on your journey, you are likely going to want to have a bit of an idea of the food choices, as you will want to make the most of the opportunity to try exciting new creations. Get familiar with some of the more common Turkish choices and street foods before you leave to help make your daily routines a little more predictable. Here is a list of popular Turkish dishes you can get acquainted with. In the video below, the host cruises the streets of Istanbul and gives us some background on these dishes and treats.
As a family we usually like to find out what the local fermented foods are as these are essential for family nutrition and health. This video will show you some of these which will help keep the family vibrant and healthy for travels, especially if you eat a little too much Turkish delight.
Meals are made really easy for families as well, and it's the local custom to bring the kids along to restaurants. Try a Meze of dozens of little dishes to give kids the opportunity to try different things local. Kids tend to love the array of dips and things that come with Turkish meals.
Turkeys location by the edge of Europe makes it not that hard to get to as international destinations go. Flights in and out of the capital are frequent from many cities in Europe and the country is home to modern facilities and airports. Many of the discount airlines that operate in Europe will also have special offers here as well. Turkish Airlines, American Airlines, KLM, British Airlines ans Lufthansa all operate flights to Turkey. Convenient Taxis are usually a reasonable option for the 20 minute journeys from cities to town and cost about twice as much as buses.
Pick up a 90 day visa at he visa office at the airport you land in BEFORE you go through customs. Although you can also get this from a Turkish consulate at hoe before you leave it will often cost more that way.
An odd law in Turkey is also that you have to carry ID around with you. For you and your family this means you need to have your passport and visa ready to show officials while you are in the country. Keep it safe but handy in a photocopied form. There are also laws about taking pictures of military facilities.
Transport Around Turkey
Once you are in Turkey hiring a car is often an option many families opt for to get around this relatively huge (by nearby European standards) country. While Turkey has a really high accident rate the majority of these occur in the chaos of Istanbul and some other larger cities. Then in these places it's definitely a time to opt for public transport. Otherwise, the roads are likely similar to the standard in your own country.
Airport Bus in Turkey
Bussing is also a reasonable option to transit between intercity, airport, and village bus stations where all the major companies have depots. The services are comparable to what you would find at home and provide the opportunity for everyone in the family to relax between destinations and to soak up a little more of the local culture. Buses n Turkey
Dolmus mini buses are what the locals use and are cheaper again. These have routes, and you can hop on and off along the way. But there is limited time for hauling all your family, and baggage on and off. Then if this is a restraint you have, perhaps give these a miss.
Trains generally are not a preferred mode of transport in Turkey. Parts of the country have a lot of mountains and are not serviced by rail at all. In Other parts of the country where trains do run, there are few direct links and many stops between stations. Rail Europe however includes Turkey in their Eurail Global Pass and as an option in their Eurail Select Pass. You make your reservations locally, though. (at the time of writing)
Money in Turkey
While credit cards can get used throughout the country your obviously not going to pull out the plastic after you finished bartering at the Bazaar or if purchasing street food for example. Keep a record of all your purchases of Turkish Lira either in Turkey or before you leave because you may at some stage have to prove you didn't get the money on the black market. Most major currencies are available to trade at exchanges at the airport.
I've generally found traveler's checks a bit of a hassle to cash and tend not to use them too often, but am aware that you can cash them at banks in Turkey if you have ID. I find it easier to use the teller machines with visa, These have an English display option and are easy enough to use.
Remember to tell your credit card provider you are going to Turkey and have an emergency contact.
Also keep in mind that Turkey is NOT a member of EU and don't assume the same rules exist about buying expensive items between borders. Especially don't purchase antiques which are not permitted to leave the country and ease up on any drug trafficking you may have been planning.
Always carry enough medical insurance for your family and keep also enough cash in your accounts to cover upfront payments for unforeseen medical expenses. Then keep all the receipts for your insurance provider should something occur.
