The spring also can offer great festivals: the Istanbul Tulip Festival in April is a sight that one should not miss. Imagine millions of tulips in all sorts of colors transforming the city into a floral wonderland. Also, it is not as overcrowded like during peak summer months so that popular tourist spots can be visited without huge hordes of tourists there.

Summer in Turkey (For the months of July and August)

Well, let talk about summer. In this period, Turkey is scorching in summer like really burning hot. Particularly if you are planning to visit places such as Bodrum or Antalya at the Mediterranean coast. The temperature can go above 30° C (86° F), sometimes reaching even 40° C (over 100°F). So this is your season if you love lying on a beach. Azure waters will wash their shores and pristine beaches are calling every day.

Winter in Turkey (December to March)

In the winter, Turkey has a little bit of everything. For instance, coastal areas like Istanbul and Izmir are quite mild with temperatures ranging between 5°C-15°C (41°F-59°F). On the other hand, places such as Cappadocia or Eastern Turkey have an appearance of a winter wonderland where it is not uncommon for temperatures to reach freezing point.

There are some amazing ski resorts in Turkey such as Uludağ and Palandöken. Additionally, during winter tourists are few and prices for rooms go down. It’s also worth mentioning that walking through the ancient sites covered by snow is something you should never miss since it gives you unique experience and it looks beautiful too.

 

So, When Should You Go to Turkey?

It simply depends on your preferences. For example, if you want fewer people around you and a comfortable weather then spring or fall is preferable. On the other hand, those who would rather be at the beach during summer and are okay with heat can visit during this period. If you would like to try out winter sports or see another perspective of Turkey then consider visiting in winter.
