Ringed by the Black Sea, the Aegean and the Mediterranean, Turkey quite literally straddles Europe and Asia. The country's rich historical legacy blends the exotic opulence of the old Ottoman Empire with European comfort, and earned a whopping #4 for Best Leap into the past.
THE PLAN : A font of architectural treasures, the onetime Ottoman capital of Edirne boasts more than five beautiful mosques and a gorgeous medieval caravanserai, or trade station. A mere two-and-a-half-hours' drive away (or two days by camel), Istanbul (not Constantinople!) beguiles with its minarets, mosaics and domes. Stock up on carpets and copperware at the ancient Grand Bazaar, and sip sweet, strong Turkish coffee at a garden cafe. For an authentic Turkish experience, head to the 400-year-old Cagaloglu Baths, one of the best bargains in town. And don't miss the spectacular Topkapı Palace, home of the sultans-especially interesting is the guided tour of the harem. Then make your way down the coast Aegean resort town of Bodrum. Here, you can stay in a sun-baked hotel within view of the ocean and feast on mezeler, the Turkish answer to tapas. Want to keep exploring? Charter a yacht and cruise the Turkish coast, stopping in a number of ancient ports.
WHAT TO TRY : It may not be PC, but you might try smoking a hookah, a classic rite of Turkish hospitality. Every city has cafes designed for just this purpose, with a wide selection of tobaccos to choose from.
WHEN TO GO : Warm weather and loads of sunshine are the norm from April through October. If you travel in the winter months, bring along an umbrella as it can get rainy. S.O.S
