Top 5 Turkish Beaches Revealed

15

Turkey continues to remain a firm favourite for UK holidaymakers looking for guaranteed summer sunshine and value-for-money. With four airports (Izmir, Dalman, Bodrum and Antalya) serving the coastal areas to the south of the country, there are plenty of resorts to choose from – but which really offer the best beaches? The travel experts at Hays Travel have compiled a list of their top five Turkish beaches.

1)The Blue Lagoon, OluDeniz, near Fethiye
This is the most photographed beach in Turkey and one of the most photographed in the world! A protected national park, this clear, peaceful lagoon is cut off from the sea by a long sandbank. Home to the endangered Loggerhead Turtle, the lagoon is surrounded by fine white shingle and shady pine forests. Hire a pedalo and see if you can get up close to a turtle, or make a real entrance by paragliding in from the top of one of the nearby rugged mountains. Stunning scenery, unique wildlife, a real must-see spot.

2)Olympos, near Alanya
Oludeniz is stunning, but its popularity means it can get very crowded. For something a little less busy, head to Olympos. Secluded and small, it’s more popular with backpackers than the masses. Nearby Roman ruins give it its name. Go back to basics and stay at the local treehouse camp.

3)Patara, near Fethiye
This huge beach is the birthplace of Nicholas, who went on to be immortalised in legend as Father Christmas. Soft and spotless, it’s a great place for building sandcastles and playing but does lack shade in the scorching high season.

4)Turgutreis, near Bodrum
Ever-popular Bodrum can get crowded and isn’t very special, luckily you don’t have to head too far out of town to reach Turgutreis. Gnetly shelving and chilled-out, this is a great spot for families. The breze also makes this beach popular with windsurfers.

5)Konyaalti Beach, near Antalya
Clear sea and pristine shingle have won this stretch an award for cleanliness. Arrive by dolmus or stay in the hip minimalist Hillside Su hotel, which overlooks this beautiful beach.

“These are only a selection of the brilliant beaches on offer in Turkey,” says Emily at Hays Travel. “Go and visit, explore, hire a car and find your own. There are lots of little islands and hidden coves around the coast – for a real holiday with a difference, why not cruise on board a gulet (traditional Turkish yacht.) If you prefer luxury, choose a first-class beach front hotel and take just a few steps from your room to the shore. There’s a beach to suit everyone in Turkey!”

Greece Hotels Learn the Secrets of the Ancient Islands

13

Ancient Greece gave many things to the modern world including the foundations of mathematics and the sciences. Holidaymakers visiting the mainland or the islands will also discover that Greece continues to surprise and confound modern scientists and archaeologists with more recent findings. Tourists staying in Greece hotels can visit the capital, Athens to see some of the artefacts that have been recovered from the Dokos Shipwreck, the oldest known shipwreck in the world dating back past 2500BC. Due to its age many artefacts perished but divers did manage to recover many ceramic containers from the wreckage. The Antikythera wreck is probably the most fruitful discovery of them all and again most of the treasures were taken to Athens after being discovered. Among them were some excellent marbles and also priceless bronze statues like the Philosophers head. However the Antikythera mechanism is its best artefact. The mechanical device is as sophisticated as a mechanical watch made by the Swiss masters of early modernity and scientists believe it was an accurate way of mapping celestial bodies for navigating the oceans or some similar purpose. Holidaymakers visiting Crete, the largest Greek island can see artefacts recovered from La Therese, a French Navy vessel that sank late in the 17th century after an on board explosion. The largest Greek island has a very long history so holidaymakers have a good choice of cultural visits, beaches and inland hikes to choose from. The ruins of the Royal Palace at Knosos are interesting and should precede a trip to the Irakleio museum where holidaymakers can learn more about the ancient Minoans through their artefacts and the other wonders they built on the island. Bodrum hotels on Turkey’s Aegean coast are also popular for holidaymakers who enjoy the Greek islands as they are often close to or on the coast and have excellent views of both Kos and Rhodes. Holidaymakers staying in Bodrum have a pick of excellent beaches to choose from and can visit the historical old city for a memorable excursion looking through artefacts left behind by the ancients. The imposing Castle of St John is Bodrum’s most popular visitor attraction and houses a wonderful maritime museum full of artefacts of all shapes and sizes that have been salvaged from the Aegean and Mediterranean seabeds. The artefacts include glassware dating back to the first century BC and ceramics from the same and later periods. The museums most interesting collections are the shipwrecks, some of which are Bronze Age. There are also Byzantine shipwrecks in the museum’s Glass shipwreck hall. For holidaymakers that want to have a look at the ceramics and other vessels that were used to transport foods and liquids the Amphora exhibit is a very comprehensive collection. The Castle of St John is a very good if slightly unexpected treat for holidaymakers staying in Bodrum and Gumbet hotels.

What If You Fall Ill On Holiday

2

One of the best times of the year is the holiday. Indeed, a holiday can be the most memorable part of your year, but it can be the most terrible if you fall ill on holiday. You can avoid suffering from illnesses during your vacation by making the right food and beverage choices. Also, travelers obtain reliable travel insurance to keep themselves protected in case they contract illness during travel.

Cases of food poisoning among travelers and vacationers are common in spite of information campaigns by travel agencies. Some illnesses have symptoms that linger long after the patients have returned home. What should you do if you contract disease during your holiday?

Many people do not know that they can actually claim compensation from the UK tour operator if they catch disease during their vacation and they have booked a package holiday. But obtaining compensation may mean going through standard process, wherein you will have to prove that the illness is due to the negligence of the operator. You can also demand compensation if the hotel failed to apply necessary steps to prevent infection.

When proving the negligence of the resort owner, for instance, you must provide evidence. You can take photos or videos of the place to prove poor maintenance and sanitation. You can also ask other people to provide evidence on your behalf. Testimonies from other vacationers who stayed at the resort are important. You can also provide names of people who got the same illness as you did.

Sometimes, identifying where you got the infection is troublesome. You have to recall the places where you went and ate, and then recall the last place you were at before the symptoms appeared.

Of course, before you can claim compensation, you have to provide evidence that you were ill. This is easy. You can obtain records from the hospital you were admitted to or from the doctor you went to when back in the UK.

It is not easy to go through the process of obtaining compensation, especially while you are still ill. In most cases, travelers put more emphasis on their own health than worrying about who pays their medical bills. Also, many travelers just cancel their vacation and go home where they choose to get medical treatment.

Another issue is that vacationers who contract illness do not know they can claim for compensation. Holiday illness can afflict many vacationers, only 1 in every 10 afflicted actually makes a complaint. Remember that if you booked a package holiday and you fell ill because you ate contaminated food provided by the hotel, you may be eligible for compensation.

What compensation you may be entitled for? Assuming you have proved that it is the tour operators or hotel owners fault, you can claim compensation for the suffering you endured due to the illness and for the cost of your spoiled holiday.

All Time Favourite Christmas Holiday Destinations

14

No one can escape the overwhelming spirit of Christmas. Almost every part of the world reverberates with cries of Merry Christmas on 25th December. Christmas remains one of the best times to plan your long haul overseas travel for a taste of festivities far away from home. However, booking of flights needs to be done well in advance so as those elusive cheap tickets do not slip out of grasp. However, quite a few airlines also offer some special Christmas deals. Here are some of the most popular Christmas destinations as revealed by online searches and other sources.

Paris

Paris, synonymous with fashion and glamour stays one of the hottest Christmas holiday destinations in the world ushers in the festival in its signature trendy style. Vanity shopping is as much a part of Christmas celebrations as is watching dazzling fireworks displays over a goblet of French wine. The Champs Elyses lights displays and Notre Dame Cathedral celebrations remain two of the biggest Christmas events in Paris.

Las Vegas

Everything in Las Vegas is larger than life and this rings true in the matter of Christmas celebrations as well. Every casino comes with terrific Christmas holiday ideas to make it an unforgettable night in Sin City. The Fremont Street Experience, Ethel M Chocolate Factory and Cactus Garden, Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens, and those glitzy shopping malls are the hottest places of Las Vegas on Christmas Eve.

New York

Although, the Big Apple is bursting with infectious energy and charm throughout the year, somehow, the same increases ten folds during Christmas. The Rockefeller Center with its gargantuan Christmas tree and the skating rink lures hoards of tourists and locals alike. Shopping at Fifth Avenue seems to take on a new meaning altogether, while the Saint Patricks mass and carriage riding around Central Park linger on as endearing memories.

Goa

Those who wish to celebrate Christmas at some exotic overseas beach destination would do well to consider Goa. This Indian destination preserves rich chunks of its Portuguese heritage and is an excellent fusion of modern style and old world charm. Christmas here means endless culinary delights, especially sea food, night to dawn beach parties, and gallons of booze. There are numerous churches and cathedrals for those who do not want to miss out upon the religious side of Christmas. Very understandably, Goa is a premiere choice for many planning their Christmas holiday breaks.

Bethlehem and Jerusalem

Bethlehem and Jerusalem quite deservedly enjoy a special status as far as Christmas holiday tours are concerned. While 25th December marks the celebrations by Roman Catholics and Protestants, 6th January comes alive with the version celebrated by Greeks, Syrians, and other Orthodox Christians.

Make your way through the Greek islands by ferry!

14

There is no doubt that Greece is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. -The Jewel of Mediterranean- ,as it has been previously called has the tenth longest coastline in the world at 14,880 km (9,246 mi) in length, featuring an enormous number of islands (approximately 1400, of which only 227 are inhabited). Millions of tourists visit Greece every year(mostly during the summer months) and leave the country with many wonderful memories that are hard to forget. I am convinced that any traveler that has visited Greece will surely tell you about the natural beauty of the country and about its rich cultural background. Most travelers visit the Greek Islands because they combine all the assets mentioned above plus they have wonderful beaches where the traveler can enjoy swimming.

>

There are many ways that a traveler can access the Greek islands. He can either go there by air(most major Greek Islands have airports) or by sea. Although the idea of traveling by plane can be rather tempting and comfortable it can also be rather expensive. Moreover another good idea is taking a cruise to the Greek islands however it can also be rather expensive and does not give you the freedom to explore the Greek islands by yourself. In my opinion the most enjoyable way to travel through Greek islands is by ferry. Traveling by ferry is most suitable for the kind of traveler that loves the sea and considers ferries as part of his holiday. These people are the lucky ones who can treat a long ferry journey as a fun thing to do, rather than a business traveler who just wants to get to his destination as quick as possible.

The ferries in Greece are modern, fast and comfortable.

No matter in which way you decide to visit Greece and regardless of the time of the year Greece surely give you some unforgettable experiences…

Galapagos Islands Snorkeling Activity

3

The Galapagos Islands are without question a top destination for divers since it is the second largest marine reserve worldwide.

The word “scuba dive” may sound scary; however, the marine landscape can be enjoyed in a different way: snorkeling.

Marine life in Galapagos

While snorkeling, the tourist is sure to see stingrays, sea turtles and an enormous variety of fish. For instance, stingrays are found close to sandy areas near the shore and sea turtles remain close to seaweed beds.

Reef fish including parrot fish, surgeonfish or colorful wrasses are also frequently seen in Galapagos.

In some cases, hammerhead sharks, penguins, an octopus, booby or sea lions can be encountered. Snorkelers in deeper waters may spot reef sharks, which is the most common specie in Galapagos.

Types of Snorkeling

Snorkeling may be a simple or a challenging experience. For beginners, off-the shore snorkeling is the easiest to perform because you can easily go back to the shore, the currents are not strong and the water is still warm.

Wall swims are used by intermediate snorkelers. These walls protect the snorkeler from currents and winds. And, you can get to see a wide variety of marine species. Some islands, such as Isabela and Genovesa, are excellent for snorkeling.

Deep-water rocks are isolated in the middle of the ocean and are perfect for fine swimmers. The more famous are Devils Crown, Turtle Rock and Kicker Rock. These submerged volcanoes are only reachable via Galapagos cruises or authorized boats.

These snorkelers get to see the greatest underwater species such as sharks, rays, eels, large fish and much more, but you have to be careful since the area has strong currents and the water is much cooler than the one close to the shore.

Gear

Galapagos Cruises rent snorkeling gear. This includes fins, mask, snorkel and wetsuits.

Sizes and quality vary depending on the Galapagos cruise you choose.

Masks must keep the water out and protect your nose

Fins are normally available from sizes 12 or 13. In case you have larger feet, it is best to bring your own.

Snorkel: make sure they allow you to breathe and keep water out.

Wetsuit in luxurious Galapagos cruises are of superior quality and well-maintained.

For those tourists who prefer to bring their own equipment, it is suggested to give it a try to avoid last-minute inconveniences.

It is also a good idea to be informed about the exact gear provided by the Galapagos cruise you choose.

Consult your travel guide before going snorkeling. Do not get into deep waters if you are not a very good swimmer. For photographers, underwater cameras are a must!

Enjoy the unbelievable marine life of Galapagos in one of the best ways possible: snorkeling.

Tunisia Holiday Sickness Claims Continue

6

It is important to get the right advice if you are considering taking legal action against your Tour Operator for an illness that you contracted while you were abroad in Tunisia. Specialist Holiday Illness Claims Solicitors may be able to handle your claim when you are back in the UK.

Many holidaymakers who visit Tunisia each year also return home having suffered with illness while away or continue to suffer sickness when in the UK. In Tunisia, the foods to avoid are undercooked or reheated meat, unpasteurised milk, local tap water, ice cubes and unpeeled fruit. Holidaymakers should only consume purchase branded bottled water.

Hotels in Tunisia will often serve a range of hot and cold foods. Cold foods such as salads, salad dressings and mayonnaise need to be kept in a refrigerator prior to being served to hotels guests. This also applies to the cold food served at the buffet. Other foods served at the buffet should not be reheated and then served to guests. Further to this, any freshly cooked food should never simply be added to food that has already been served out as contamination could occur. Kitchen staff must maintain basic levels of food hygiene and the kitchen food preparation areas must be kept clean at all to times to prevent the spread of infection.

All Inclusive hotels in Tunisia that have had episodes of illness and sickness need to be inspected on regular basis by Tour Operator representatives. This is to ensure that repeat outbreaks of illness and sickness do not happen. Holidaymakers that contract illnesses from an all inclusive resort are likely to have caught the infection from the food served within the resort complex.

All food, but especially meat such as chicken, pork and burgers, should be well cooked and served hot. Any food that appears undercooked and is lukewarm should not be eaten and should be avoided. If the food is like this at your all inclusive hotel in Tunisia then you should report it to the hotel management.

Infection caught from food in an all inclusive hotel will likely lead to symptoms of vomiting and diarrhoea. It may be the case that the holidaymaker has contracted Salmonella, E-Coli or Campylobacter food poisoning. In the case of a confirmed pathogen it is very important that you seek medical attention and treatment. Constant vomiting and diarrhoea will cause the body to dehydrate causing the holidaymaker to become seriously ill. Holidaymakers have reported cases of Salmonella upon returning home from Tunisia.

A specialist holiday illness claims solicitor will be able to help you claim compensation for an illness that you have suffered whilst on holiday in Tunisia. Compensation can be awarded for your illness, loss of holiday enjoyment and any medical expenses you incurred whilst you were out in Tunisia. The claim can be taken on a no win, no fee basis so that you wont have to fund any expensive legal bills.

Attract Customers To Your Hotel With The Perfect Advert

7

Getting people to come to your hotel should be easy, but with the recession it’s more difficult than it was in the past. There are still just as many hotels, but there aren’t as many people taking holidays because of the cost. More and more people who do travel are taking staycations, where they remain very close to home, sometimes even in their own town. These can be beautiful and they can be a lot of fun, but as a hotel owner you need to remind people of that. You also need to pull in the people who come from other areas so that they will stay at your hotel instead of going to another one. One of the ways that you can advertise your hotel and all that you have to offer is by offering great deals and great specials to customers who have stayed with you before. By contacting them and asking if there is anything that you can offer them they might be enticed to come back to your hotel, especially if they had a good experience with you the first time. You can also increase the efforts that you make where public relations are concerned. Inviting a travel writer to stay overnight for free is a good way to get a good review, and that’s advertising that’s virtually free.

When you advertise, you want to be sure to let people know what sets your hotel apart. If you offer a great amenity that’s not that common, or is common but you offer it at a great price, let people know. If you have won awards or if you pride yourself on something specific, make sure you tell people. They want to know why they should spend their holidays with you, and you’ll need to tell them so that they can make their choice. You won’t win over everyone that way, but you’ll get a lot more business with a good advert than you’ll get with one that you didn’t put that much time into, so make the effort to let your advert really stand out. It’ll be worth the time and the money that you put into it.

Building Your Dream Ski Vacation

1

A successful ski vacation is likely to combine a number of different features. If you’re looking to make the most of such a vacation, then it’s clear that you’ll need to plan carefully and to consider all aspects of what’s involved.

So how can you go about doing so? It makes a lot of sense to give consideration to each of the individual elements in turn. To begin with, you may wish to consider the time of year that you’re intending to travel. Although this may seem like a strange suggestion, particularly if your focus in on Europe, there’s more to this than meets the eye.

The reality is that there are numerous destinations available to you, which also means that you have a significant range of dates to choose from. With serious resorts operating in North America and Japan, for instance, you may not need to limit yourself to European destinations.

This does, however, lead on to inevitable questions about the budget that you have available to you. In many senses, this is also less significant than it may initially appear. Although flights may cost a little more, in some cases, it’s also true to say that they probably represent a small proportion of the total vacation spend.

So you can decide on when you want to travel and then start to consider specific destinations. You may begin by highlighting a country, before moving on to think more closely about individual resorts. You’ll find that you’ll need to give plenty of consideration to likely snow conditions, but that there’s also plenty more to think about.

I always believe that accommodation has a large impact on the success or failure of any trip. If you really want to have a great time, then it makes sense to think about whether you’ll opt for a hotel, or maybe take the more interesting option of looking at ski chalets.

My personal preference is for the latter, since I believe that this offers a more unique experience. Although it can be nice to stay in a quality hotel, there’s no doubt that a luxury chalet can really help your vacation to stand out from the crowd. You’ll also want to look closely at the facilities that are available to you.

What about for times when you find that you are away from the slopes? In such circumstances, it’s likely that you’ll be looking for other forms of entertainment. Whether that means seeking out restaurants, or finding the best nightclubs, you will discover that much of the research can be carried out before leaving home.

The Advantages Of A Motorhome Holiday

8

A motorhome holiday is significantly different to a package holiday. The cost associated with a motorhome holiday is nowhere near the amount of money you will spend on a package holiday. There is also the feeling of freedom and independence you get from travelling with a motorhome that you can’t get when vacationing at only one destination. People are now considering the benefits if purchasing or renting a motorhome for their next holiday trip because going on a motorhome holiday allows them to travel far and choose where they want to go at any given time.

Going on a motorhome holiday allows for flexibility. The idea of being able to go anywhere they like at any given time is what appeals to most people. You plan and take your motorhome holiday anytime during the year. You don’t have to settle on traveling to just one destination, you can stay at one place for a day or two, then pack up and head over to your next destination. Traveling in a motorhome vehicle is comfortable and convenient so you can go on holidays several times a year. You will never be bored because you can easily go from one place to another, see and experience different things.

A motorhome holiday is a may be life changing and educational experience. If you are tired of the same old package holiday deals, try something new and exciting. Hiring a motorhome and heading out on your own will give you memories and the experience of a lifetime.

One other advantage of a motorhome holiday is the food. Even if the food at hotels is decent, nothing beats the taste of home cooked meals. Most motorhomes are equipped with a kitchen; you can whip up some of the dishes that you would cook at home without having to spend a fortune. And you can eat your food anywhere that you want and eat it at your own pace.

The UK is one of the best places to spend your motorhome holiday. From the abandoned castles, fun theme parks, and the walks of Wales, Britain is actually a good choice to spend your holidays in. Of course, there are several other places that you could go to. Europe is another popular destination. There’s Spain, France, and Italy as well. These are just some of the most recommended motorhome holiday destinations.

It comes as no surprise that motorhome holidays are fast becoming popular. Those that normally would have paid a premium for a pampered luxurious vacation at a far-off tropical beach are seriously considering the benefits of a motorhome holiday. Combining both accommodation and transportation in a single package, purchasing or hiring a motorhome is more cost-effective compared to a package holiday deal. A motorhome holiday also allows you to experience the freedom of the open road.
