Do you need a break from the hustle of the world, or do you just need some peace of mind? Both seem to be a reason for some activity that will take our minds to something beautiful. If you love to explore and take your mind to somewhere stunning, Turkey has many uncovered and unexplored gems. Before you pack your bags, let us present you the astounding road trips in Turkey.
The Aegean coastline is one of the most enjoyable trips in Turkey in every season, but in late spring, you should try stopping at the numerous inlets and take a dip in the charmingly chilly ocean. Explore small towns, ancient ruins, and seashores. You can start from Izmir and head south to visit all previous Greek islands, including Cunda, Bozcaada, and Gökçeada. Likewise, you can choose to go north along the coast and visit Kusadasi, Bodrum (just like Ephesus), Datça, Marmaris, and Fethiye. Spreading these trips over a few days and spending a day or two on each island can be quite refreshing.
Have you ever wondered what the Turkish counterpart of Australia's Great Ocean Road is? Just like Sinop, Amasra is becoming a cruise destination too. If you are not a cruise ship enthusiast, you can drive from Amasra to Sinop, which is approximately 6 hours. There aren't many places to visit on the road, but if you stop by the small villages, you may live some unforgettable local experiences.
As nearly everyone knows, Capadoccia has one of the most wonderful landscapes. Just driving to Capadoccia is a beautiful experience by itself, and if you drive from Antalya, it can be one of the most unforgettable experiences of your life. As you drive from Antalya to Capadoccia, you will witness how the scene changes from blue seashores to baffling pixie smokestacks.
You are very lucky if you can take this road trip because, at the end of it, you will have seen two of the seven wonders of the world; Artemis Temple and the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus. The road is simple, yet, it has two ancient cities; one of Anatolia's largest Apollo temples, and Lake Bafa, which will confuse you because the lake must be on your right-hand side as you drive. You can stop by the stunning restaurants on the Bodrum and enjoy the road even more.
