It is necessary to know the ideal time interval for the ideal holiday places so as not to say ‘I wish I had come earlier or later’ during your stay. The taste of some destinations really crystallizes when you go in the season. If you are planning a holiday, we suggest you take a look at the list we have prepared for you.

January is one of the best months for winter vacationers. If you do not want to choose a very crowded term, take into account the semester holiday period of the schools. Uludag, Kartalkaya and Kartepe are the top ski resorts we will recommend for January.

If you prefer a little quietness and long slopes, you can choose Kars Sarikamis. You will be full of white on a 5-stage track totaling 12 km. Another alternative could be Kayseri Eryices. Erciyes Ski Center, which is only 25 km away from the city center, is suitable for all kinds of winter sports.

In this month towards the end of the winter season, the profits in the lowlands begin to soften. However, winter sports are still in full bloom in high places. In particular, Erzurum Palandoken is at the service of ski lovers with 22 pistes. We especially recommend you to see the slopes named Ejder and Kapikaya.



With the gradual decline of the effect of cold air, the first buds of spring begin to appear. At the same time, nature’s reawakening begins to mobilize the hormones of happiness this month. Therefore, staying alone with nature is an ideal time to rest our souls. A weekend in the spectacular atmosphere of Lake Abant, especially in March, will be great for you.

How about spending the first days of spring in Izmir? A city tour covering Izmir’s famous Clock Tower, Kadife Castle, Virgin Mary’s House, Culturepark and Ephesus-Bergama Ancient Cities will take you out of the routine life.

A cultural tour starting from Canakkale and continuing with Gallipoli, Troy, Assos, Adatepe, Behramkale, Bozcaada, Zeus Altar and Tahtakuslar will be a perfect choice for the spring months.




Agva, Polenezkoy and Kaz Mountains can offer you a peaceful holiday in this month when the spring begins to feel good and the sun starts to warm us. You will enjoy a thousand tons of greenery in the Kaz Mountains, where you can find accommodation in small family-run pension or tree houses.

A Gökceada tour covering Kalekoy, Zeytinlikoy, Derekoy, Tepekoy will also be a good option. If you have chosen an Eastern Mediterranean tour to explore other aspects of Antakya, Iskenderun, Adana, Mersin, Anamur, Alanya, Antalya in the warm weather, do not come back without experiencing the flavors of that locality.




Cappadocia, Masukiye and West Black Sea region are the places to visit in May when the spring weather is felt almost everywhere in the country. We would like to remind you that it’s truly sensible to enjoy the first days of summer in holiday resorts just before they get crowded.

A Western Black Sea tour consisting of Safranbolu and Amasra will be a peaceful holiday for serenity seekers. If your route is Cappadocia, do not miss out Goreme, Urgup, Derin Kuyu, Ihlara Valley, Haci Bektas, Uchisar. It will be a holiday you can’t get enough to take photos.

With the closing of schools and the beginning of the holiday season, of course, the holiday regions begin to intensify and color. Dalyan, Kas and Gokova are among the main travel destinations for June.

You can take a boat tour in Dalyan and enjoy the Iztuzu beach where the eggs of Caretta-Caretta turtles are left. The Kaunos King Tombs, which appear among the reeds, are worth seeing.

For sea, sun and sand lovers, Kas will be an ideal choice.




In the midst of summer, you should forget yourself in the unique beauty of the Aegean. Marmaris, Gocek, Bodrum, Cesme, Alacati and Fethiye are the destinations attracting many holidaymakers from all around the world in July.

If you go to Fethiye, don’t get contended with swimming and try the slope parachute. “Bodrum”, a classic for celebrities, is worth seeing with all its beauty. If you want to join the Crazy Beach Parties and add color to your vacation, Cesme will be waiting for you.

Love is utterly different in sweet November. The places to go in November: Gonen, Yalova, Abant and Bursa. There are so many places to see in Bursa from the Green Tomb to the Ulu Cami and from Cumalikizik Village to Oylat Thermal Spring… Do not return without having a rustic breakfast especially from Cumalikizik Village.




In the last month of the year, the cold weather starts to feel good. Would not it be good to live in Istanbul in December? The main points you can include to the sightseeing route: the Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, Sultanahmet (Blue Mosque), Suleymaniye Mosque, Yerebatan Cistern, Grand Bazaar, Spice Bazaar, Dolmabahce and Ciragan Palaces, Yıldız-Gulhane, Galata Tower, Sultanahmet Square and Eyup Sultan.
