Cruise to a land of "smiling faces, beautiful places"

Set against a backdrop of pine clad hills, and resting by the sea between two sets of mountains, the coastal resort town of Marmaris is part of the Turkish Riviera (yes, there is such a thing).

An appealing sight, but this is only the beginning of a day of amazements that include the imposing Lycian rock tombs, elaborately carved into a cliff face, and the resting place of the kings of Caunos; and a riverboat ride through a labyrinth of tall reeds on the Dalyan Delta.

If you’re looking for a taste of the real, rural Turkey, there’s also Bozburun, an idyllic seaside retreat (be sure to pick up a jar of thyme honey, a local specialty). And a bit further down the winding road is the quaint coastal town of Datça, renowned for its dramatic scenery and sun-drenched beaches.

But if you don’t mind a three-hour drive to absolute perfection, then you absolutely have to go to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Pamukkale, perhaps our favorite place in all of Turkey. Its 650-foot-tall aqua-blue hot springs cascading over a series of calcium terraced basins—and set against the 2,000-year-old backdrop of the Greco-Roman ruins of Hierapolis—will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen in your life.
