Turkey really is a one of kind holiday destination. This is a country that straddles not just two continents but two ways of life. It forms the geographical and natural border between the ancient and the modern, the European and the Asian, and the Christian and Islamic worlds.

It is a truly fascinating country and one that really teems with energy and life.

However, there is another side to Turkey than the buzzing bazaars and markets of the cities. Along the country's vast coastline there are countless stunning holiday resorts and hotels that boast incredible beaches, pumping nightlife and relaxing spa facilities.

Down the country's Mediterranean coast is the Bodrum peninsula, home to a large portion of Turkey's resorts. With miles of golden sandy beaches to enjoy in every direction and warm waters in which to frolic, there will be plenty to keep you entertained. Add to that a chance to try out some water and wind sports, great facilities for kids, couples and families and Turkey starts to look an even better holiday prospect.

Of course, even in a modern resort, history is never far away. Turkey has often been at the crossroads of history, with Roman, Greek and Ottoman architecture fighting for space. The ancient city of Ephesus is well worth a visit if you're in the Izmir area.

Dalaman is another popular area and home to resorts like Fethiye and Icmeler. There is always plenty to do here, with beautiful beaches and lively nightlife. At the resort of Olu Deniz you can even encounter the Blue Lagoon.

Of course, no summary of Turkey is complete without mentioning the incredible city of Istanbul. It may not be the capital, that honour is taken by Ankara, but it is certainly one of the world's great cities. Sitting by the water, you can stroll through vast bazaars, stumble across ancient towers and mosques and sample fish pulled straight from the water on to the grill.
