Another way to say hamam is a Turkish bath. If you haven’t heard of the first, you surely have heard of the second. You can only visit turkey by taking advantage and doing this experience. It is more intimidating than it seems and will be an experience you can write home about. This is not something you will be able to do as a couple. The different sexes are sent to other areas. If you are thinking of a couples massage or experience together, this is not that activity. Wherever you stay in Turkey, ask where to find the best hamam, and you will not be disappointed.
Is it an actual vacation if you cannot lounge on a beach? Turkey is known for having some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean. One to add to your list is Patara Beach. It is one of the most popular beaches, and unlike some, there is an entrance fee. The sand is less like the California beaches and more like the sand of a desert. And it is also a breeding ground for many turtles. Depending on the time of the visit, you may get to see more than others.
