Hi everyone! We continue our blog series with a new one! In this post, we will focus on explaining one of the most curious topics by families is: Turkey Family Tours and Top 5 Destinations!
In almost all of our posts; we are mentioning about the diversity of Turkey and how it welcomes & accommodates every kind of travelers from all around the World! At the end of this post, you will agree that it is suitable for those traveling with children as well as culture, nature, history, archeology, backpackers, luxury, sailing, and other types of travel.
What Makes a Place more Suitable for Family Travelers than Others?
To be honest, it is all about personal preferences! Most of the families prefer places with amenities and entertainment for children and teenagers. It is preferred that these are within the scope of a hotel or very close to the accommodation area and that the activity is held during the daytime.
Before we mention about these kinds of places, we would like to sound-out some destinations marked not that kid-friendly!
Destinations in the East and Southeast like Van, Diyarbakır, Urfa, Mardin, or Hatay are not that suitable to spend your time with your family & kids. These places attract more individual travelers, history, culture, local, and rural-life lovers.
In the north of Turkey; You can get full of eco-tourism, nature, greenery, forests, and green vegetation. However, you can not find big chain Hotels in which you might have entertainment teams & shows.
