What is the best time for a trip to Turkey ?
Spring is the best time to visit Turkey , in the fall is coming , during the summer , last winter.
Spring (April , May, through mid-June ) is prime because the weather all over the country moderate and the days are long. ( April can be rainy , though. ) This is characterized by its high season for Istanbul and Cappadocia, fully booked hotels in manyboutiqu , and the prices at theirhighest . It’s the off-season for Aegean resorts and Mediterraneanbeach .
Autumn ( mid-September to October) is the second best with mostly mild weather, but the days are getting shorter, and rain may begin again in October . Again, this is high season for Istanbul and Cappadocia, with many boutique hotels are heavily booked at their highest prices. At beach resorts , the water is still warm , the crowds are smaller, and the prices are low.
Summer ( mid-June , July, August to mid-September ) is very hot in five of seven different climatic regions of Turkey , though usually rainless , and cool inland in the evenings. Beach resorts are crowded and the prices are at their peak , but the cities are less so Istanbul is a bargain , with smaller crowds and shorter lines for admission to attractions . Cappadocia is cheaper and more convenient as well.
Winter ( November, December , January, February, March ) can be cold and rainy , with the exception of the Southeast , which remains moderate, but lower prices and fewer tourists are to be compensation , with occasional cold but sunny day , everywhere. I often travel to Turkey inMarch and November , to benefit from the lower prices, better availability of hotel rooms , and the lack of crowds.
