Do you intend to travel to Turkey in 2021? We’re all in need of a vacation, and property for sale in Turkey is in high demand. Turkey offers a beautiful climate all year, but you decide when is the best time to visit. Summer and autumn are a perfect time to visit Turkey if you’re looking to invest in Turkish real estate in 2021. In Turkey, there are many meteorological and climatic areas. The Turkish State Meteorological Service provides current weather forecasts in English.
Spring has arrived in Turkey
The spring season (March to mid-June) is ideal since the weather is pleasant and the days are long. (April may be rainy.) This is the high season in Istanbul and Cappadocia, with many boutique hotels fully booked and rates at their highest levels. It is, however, the off-season for Aegean and Mediterranean beach resorts.
Turkey in the autumn
Autumn (mid-September to October) is second best, with generally moderate weather, but the days are shorter, and rain will return in October. This is also the high season in Istanbul and Cappadocia, with some luxury hotels fully booked at peak rates. The beach resorts’ water is still warm, the crowds are smaller, and the rates are lower.
Turkey in the summer
Summer (mid-June to mid-September) is bright but often rainless and cool inland in the evenings in five of Turkey’s seven climatic zones. The seaside resorts are the busiest, with the highest costs, but the towns are less crowded, with shorter lineups to visit the sights. Istanbul is a good deal. Cappadocia is also less expensive.
Turkey in the winter
Except for the southeast, which remains moderate, winter (November through February) can be chilly and snowy, with cold but bright days on occasion. Even yet, lesser prices and fewer visitors are a welcome relief. Flights to Turkey are less expensive, hotel rooms are plentiful, and crowds are lower between March and November.
Where in Turkey should you go?
It is a large, contemporary city with a tiny, charming historic heart, a good archaeology museum, long, sunny beaches east and west, the Turquoise Coast’s main airport, good hotels, enough to see and do, and magnificent views of the sea and mountains.
The historic centre, known as Kaleici, surrounds the Roman harbour. Many of the structures here are Ottoman in origin, with a few dating back to Roman times, and some have been rebuilt as flats, luxury hotels, pansions, and restaurants.
Antalya Konyaalt Plaj, a lengthy stretch of rough sand and stones that runs west for many kilometres, is Antalya’s most famous beach. The sand is substantially smoother along Lara Plaj to the east. Other beaches can be found at Side and Alanya to the east, and Kemer, Phaselis, and Olimpos to the south.
On the peninsula of Bodrum is the well-known resort and yacht port of Bodrum. The ruins of the ancient Mausoleum, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, and the high Castle of St Peter, a Crusader castle that currently serves as the world’s foremost Underwater Archeology Museum, are located to the south of Turkey’s Aegean coast.
Although the city’s beaches are limited and the sea is unappealing, other towns and beaches nearby. Many people prefer to base themselves in various cities around the Bodrum peninsula. Bodrum is also known for having a thriving nightlife. If you want to stay up late at boisterous discos and bars, Bodrum is the place to be.
The Temple of Apollo at Didyma, equivalent in importance to the oracular temple Delphi in Greece, was one of the essential oracles in the ancient world. It is the southernmost of three ancient sites visited in a single day from Selçuk (Ephesus) or Kuşadasi (Priene, Miletus, and Didyma). Since ancient times, the temple has been here, although Cyrus of Persia dismantled the earlier structure in 494 BC. Soon after, construction on the new stunning design began.
The massive white marble temple is spectacular, with a forest of 120 gigantic columns on the front porch. Temple priests welcomed petitioners in a significant gateway at the back of the porch to answer questions concerning the oracle and provide oracular poems.
