Turkey has great scenery (Capadocia), beaches (Riviera) and a very long history with Troj, Ephesus and the Ottoman Empire. Noah's Ark is supposed to be at Mount Ararat (5137m) in the East. Turkey is very centrally located in the Middle East, close to the Arab World, Europe, Russia, Africa and the rest of Asia.
