In this article, we are going to talk about the best time of the year to visit Turkey.
Turkey has attractions all year round, but choosing the best time to travel to Turkey can make a big difference in the region you want to visit, any kind of tourism you want to do you should always be prepared for everything that could go wrong and should be prepared for that.
Spring and Fall: The Best Time to Travel to Turkey
We think that these are the best months to travel to Turkey. During March, April and May (Spring), and September, October, and November (Autumn), temperatures are pleasant and the probability of rain is not high.
In these periods you will find more attractive prices as they are not peak season periods. Also, you will find that most of the famous attractions have very little people or are empty. Without a bunch of tourists trying to get photos of the places and crowding the place, you can enjoy a more peaceful and pleasant trip without all that hassle.
Summer: Higher Prices and Full Cities
When you choose to spend your vacation in the countries of the northern hemisphere, the tendency is that the cities, beaches, hotels, and museums are much more crowded and expensive than usual. This season mainly includes the months of July and August.
If you plan to visit the beach regions, although they are staked with people, there is no better season than this. However, as we said before, be prepared to find crowded beaches and probably a lot of headaches that come from overcrowded places. Taking all these factors into consideration, we think that going there at this time of the year is not a very good solution.
But if you really want to go to the beach regions, September still has very good temperatures and better prices than July and August. Although you will not experience the peak of the summer heat, around September the temperatures are still high and you can fully enjoy the beach.
Winter: very cold with a chance of snow
If you choose to visit Turkey in the winter be prepared to endure very cold weather, you could also see snow in some Turkish cities. Winter, which runs from December to February, can also reach negative temperatures in some of its cities, so be wary of that when choosing the date for your vacation.
In Istanbul, for example, the temperature can reach close to 0 degrees Celsius.
If you want to go ther in the winter, visit Icmeler and Cappadocia it is a place that is particularly beautiful during winter. Some people say this is one of the most beautiful times to go ballooning in Cappadocia because the hills are all white and covered with snow! However, balloon rides may be more easily canceled due to bad weather.
