72 Hours in Antalya: Now Officially My Favourite City in Turkey! (Part 1)

Merhaba ve hoşgeldin!

Last February, I travelled to Turkey for a very short but satisfying holiday to the southern coastal city of Antalya! Before going, I didn’t know that there were so many attractions to offer to tourists. I thought people only came for the beaches, since it’s way down south and all. I’ve visited Istanbul and Bursa in 2010 and we were mainly visiting historical and cultural attractions there. After having visited the famous Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia and Topkapı Palace, I thought that it is a second-class tourist destination compared to Istanbul. How wrong I was!

Since I am a huge history geek and an architecture enthusiast, there were so much for me to marvel in this lovely little city which stole my heart.

Of course, by then I wanted to write more for this blog, however I really felt that this month has been one of the busiest months I ever went through in my IB course. In this post, I will be giving a rundown of what I do each week nowadays and my plans for the end of this month.

Before going further, allow me to announce something really important: I will be travelling to Turkey tomorrow! Currently I am having a school midterm holiday for five days (this Friday until next week Wednesday) so to make the most of this short period, we decided to spend time in one of Turkey’s most beautiful coastal resort cities: Antalya!
