Antalya is the largest city on the Turkish Mediterranean coast and it is certainly one of the most lively and fun destinations to visit in the whole of Turkey. The city is packed with history and culture for visitors to explore, has some great malls for a bit of foreign retail therapy, some fantastic beaches close by to top up your tan and scenic walking routes that provide phenomenal panoramic views.
Cheap holidays to Antalya are becoming increasingly popular and the region can be reached from most airports in the UK. It is very easy to get to as the region’s main airport, Antalya International Airport, is located just outside of the city. Make sure you check the Cheekytrip comparison site to find cheap holidays from your local airport. Direct flights to Antalya tend to take around 4 hours. However, since there is not much of an onward journey from the airport, you can save quite a bit of time.
Antalya is at its most lively during the summer period that runs from spring until autumn. Temperatures usually reach the low 30s consistently throughout these summer months. Prices are usually a little bit cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring and if you are looking to find a bargain while evading the sometimes intense summer heat, a trip to Antalya around April time will probably be perfect for you.
Antalya is absolutely packed with things to do for any type of traveller. One of the best walking routes to check out is the hill of Tünektepe which, at its peak, provides some breathtaking views of the city of Antalya itself as well as the surrounding region. In terms of shopping, avoid many of the counterfeit items that are sold on the street here and take a trip to one of the area’s top-quality malls including Terracity and 5M Migros. Located just outside of Antalya is the impressive Kursunlu Waterfall Nature Park which is also well worth a visit if you get the chance.
