Turkey is a Mediterranean country that is primarily situated in Western Asia, though a small part is located in Southeastern Europe. This combination of East meets West is one of the many reasons newlyweds flock from all across the globe to experience a Turkey honeymoon vacation.
Taking a Hamam, or Turkish bath with your beloved at the coed Süleymaniye Hamami is a great way to start your Turkey honeymoon vacation.

Those seeking to discover more of Turkey’s past will want to visit the ruins of Troy, the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, the Bodrum Underwater Archaeology Museum and the Istanbul Archeology Museum.
A hot air balloon ride over Cappadocia is a great way to add some romance to your Turkey honeymoon vacation. You can also take a romantic boat ride of the Bosphoris, the trade route that connected the East to the West, or opt to spend a romantic night in a cave hotel. No Turkey honeymoon vacation would be complete without a cruise on the Turquoise Coast. You and your loved one will marvel as you pass majestic mountains and undiscovered ruins. Those looking to make this cruise even more exciting can dive off their boat and explore the impossibly blue waters below. The best time of year to book your Turkey honeymoon vacation is during the shoulder months of April, May, late-September and October, when the weather isn’t that hot and the crowds are at a minimum.
