Winter is a time when visitors can experience Turkey like most travellers never do as the country offers a different kind of charm, apart form the obvious off-season benefits.
Travellers can witness the mountains and countryside transform into a winter wonderland. One can visit Turkey’s beautiful lakes that freeze over to form amazing sites. Admire the country’s ancient ruins and archeological sites, minus the crowds. And enjoy Istanbul’s winter festivals and Christmas joy from a unique winter perspective, says the Turkish Cultural and Tourism Office in Dubai.
With moderate Mediterranean weather, Turkey’s average temperature in December ranges between 8 and 12 degrees centigrade on the low side, and a conformable 16 to 18 degrees centigrade on the higher side. It’s a perfect weather to investigate Istanbul’s historical and Unesco world heritage buildings located in the Sultanahmet district bursting with colour and art.
