The Markets of Istanbul

Turkey-Markets

If you’re heading off on your Mediterranean family holidays, Turkey is more than likely to be one of your first choices. The ubiquitous trio of sun, sea and sand are obviously the biggest draw cards, but Turkey has a lot more to offer than that. Not only is Turkey steeped in a fascinating history (the remnants of which are some of the most important archaeological signposts in the world), it also has a proud and colourful culture. It’s not hard to shop, eat and drink like a local on your family holidays; Turkey has some of the most wonderful shops and bazaars you will ever see. If you’re visiting Istanbul, whether you’re looking for food, souvenirs, spices or art you will find a market tucked around every corner.

The Grand Bazaar Istanbul

The Big Daddy of all markets, the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul is home to over 5000 shops and stalls. If you can’t find it in the Grand Bazaar, it simply doesn’t exist. Gold and silver jewellery, fabulously exotic antiques, metal and copper object d’art, leather goods and hand painted ceramics are just a selection of the treasures you can find. When you are travelling with children on your family holidays, Turkey’s biggest undercover bazaar is a fascinating and exciting attraction for kids of all ages. They will love the smells and sounds of the bustling bazaar. The Turkish people love children, so they will be entertained and embraced by the locals. While it is a good idea to stay close and keep tabs on the family, the Grand Bazaar has a safe and friendly atmosphere and is an ideal day out in Istanbul.

The Spice Market Istanbul

Whilst not strictly for the children, an excursion to the wonderfully aromatic Spice Market in Istanbul should still be included in the itinerary of your family holidays. Turkey is renowned for its exotic spices, fruits and nuts and these markets will have your head spinning and your mouth salivating with the selection on display. The first thing that hits you is obviously the smell, which permeates every nook and cranny of the markets creating a delightful, if at times overpowering, scent. Row upon row of jewel coloured spices line the stalls in huge baskets and the aisles are crowded with locals jostling for the lowest prices. As with any market in Turkey, the first price is never the last price and haggling is a way of life, so don’t be shy to ask for a discount. Why not involve the children in the fun of purchasing some precious spices to take home as a souvenir – you may find they get a better price than you!

Tahtakale Market District

Situated in between the Grand Bazaar and the Spice Markets, the Tahtakale Market District is the most authentic taste of Turkey you will find. Almost exclusively patronised by locals, the streets of the district are lined with shops and stalls selling everything from handkerchiefs, beads, food stuffs, luggage, clothing, kitchen utensils, wooden furniture and toys, to mosque decorations and even firearms. A fabulous place to visit on your family holidays, Turkey’s genuine way of life is on display through the sights, sounds and colours of the Tahtakale Market District

Uk-Theme-Park-Guide

South East England is home to a number of exciting theme parks which cater for all the family. Here is a breakdown of what the top eight have to offer.

Thorpe Park

When guests tire of the rides, they can spend the rest of the day viewing stingrays, sharks, gorillas, lions and tigers. Although Chessington World of Adventures closes for the winter, the animal attractions are still open at the weekends from January to March, and the prices are cheaper because they don t include access to the rides. There is no difference between online tickets and those purchased at the gates. Prices are more expensive when the entire site is open, because the ticket includes access to the animal attractions as well as all the rides.

LEGOLAND

The theme of this amusement park is the colorful building brick toys so beloved by children across the world. Rides, building workshops, live entertainment and go karting are all given the Lego treatment at the park in Windsor, Berkshire. Although one of the newer theme parks in England it was opened in 1996 it has quickly become one of the most visited attractions in the UK.

Favorites include an arcade and gaming area, a water chute, and the bumper cars. It s free to get into the park, but once inside you must buy tokens to go on each ride one token costs 50p, and rides cost three to five tokens each.

Gatwick And Heathrow Airports The Gateways To The UK

Gatwick-And-Heathrow-Airport

Every day, hundreds of flights land in the city of London. Most are at the Gatwick and Heathrow airports. These even have several airlines that have hourly flights to New York, and usually around 6 others to separate destinations in the United States. Travelers from around the world flood these airports every day. That is why the car hire UK industry is such a huge success. There are also more flights than any other UK airport to the Far East, South America, and South Africa.

When flights enter London, visitors can find arrange car hire Gatwick Airport, car hire Heathrow Airport, or up to three other airports within the zoning of London. This gives the tourism bureau a lot to do when scheduling visitors.

The popular sites to see in London are accessible from either main airport, but for most international flights, Gatwick will be where to begin the travel plans.

Even in business travel, London is one of Europe’s leading broadband internet technology providers, with better connectivity than anywhere else in Europe. There are a multitude of facilities available to hold physical or virtual business meetings with clients and employees from around the world.

With easy access from the surrounding M25 motorway, the sights and culture of London can be experienced even by business visitors on off time. The best hotels, and castles and palaces, are located within an hour of each other and London’s center.

An important landmark to remember when navigating London is the historic Thames river. The city, as it stands now, does not have multiple sky scrapers or tall buildings to get one’s bearings. The reference points to use while traveling are linked to the river that runs through the city.

London is sprawling, and has many wonderful sights to see. The Thames river provides a vital transportation outlet, as well as a way to mesh the rolling hills, romantic architecture, and the flowing water into a wealth of amazing sightseeing.

From the overwhelming sight of Buckingham Palace, to the remains of Roman architecture, to the steady turning of the hands at Big Ben, one must plan their trip wisely to fit in all the important places.

Shopping days are best planned while having a hired car. The delays on the underground could prove to be one’s undoing should they spend much money on the boutiques. Hire a car with a large boot to haul the items back to the hotel. Whatever the reason for being in London, pausing through at either airport, or driving through by automobile, the sights and sounds of this wonderful city will lend memories to last a lifetime.

An important note for international visitors, though, the changing of the guard is not a year round, daily event. It runs for a few months of the year, and not on days of inclement weather. This will limit the times of year you may want to holiday here. The rest of the sites of London will make a holiday worth the trip any time of year though.

Majorca – A Food Lover’s Paradise

The-Search-for-the-Perfect-Beach-on-Majorca

When it comes to your annual family holidays, one of the best things about getting away from everyday life is the fact that you won’t have to spend half the day thinking about and preparing meals. If you’re lucky enough to be heading off on Majorca family holidays, you’re in for even more of a treat. The Spanish know how to live and they know how to eat. Mealtime is more than just about the food, it’s a true social and family event and whilst you are on this sun soaked Balearic island, you can tuck in and dine like a local.

Taste Test Some Tapas

The Spanish love their Tapas and once you’ve tried some of these little morsels you’ll know why! Although they are, in theory, bite size nibbles to whet your appetite for the main course, Tapas is often so delicious you will find yourself over indulging. Beautifully presented and mouth wateringly flavoursome, Tapas comes in many forms: grilled vegetables, tortillas, olives, prawns, meats, beans and various breads, in fact anything that can be miniaturised, marinated or served in a creative way! A Tapas night is perfect after a long day on the beach on your Majorca family holidays, and even the fussiest of children will find something to satisfy.

A Perfect Paella

Ah paella; who doesn’t love it? But if you’ve never tried genuine Spanish paella then you can’t truly call yourself an aficionado. Whether you stay in for a night on your Majorca family holidays and make your own paella from local ingredients, or go out and treat yourself to a local restaurant version, once you’ve tried the Spanish olive oil, seafood and rice, you’ll know what we mean. The Spanish pack their paella full of chicken, chorizo, prawns, fish and, of course, it’s all simmered in some lovely Spanish wine. Perhaps it’s the setting and perhaps it’s the juicy seafood; but there’s just something special about eating paella with your family in a restaurant on the beach as the sun sets over the Mediterranean…

Meat Eaters Feast

A lot of traditional Majorcan dishes are quite heavily meat based, using mainly pork which is the island’s staple. Pork lends itself well to the rich, spicy flavours of Spanish cooking and is also used to make varieties of sausages, like chorizo and sobrasada. While the children will find plenty they want to eat on your Majorca family holidays, for adults there’s even more of a delectable choice. Some of the stronger game meats may appeal, as will the stews and dishes flavoured with pungent cayenne pepper and paprika.

Fishy Tales

A clue to what’s the absolute best on offer in Majorcan cuisine lies in its location. The seafood is both abundant and out of this world delicious, and you will find yourself going back for seconds and thirds of prawns, mussels, fish and lobster. Even if the kids aren’t adventurous enough to try some of the more exotic seafood delights, they’ll definitely be tempted by fish and chips with a difference on their Majorca family holidays.

Cruise Ship Travel Guide

Cruise-Guide

Going on a cruise is a great way to spend a vacation. The sun, activities, food, and entertainment make cruise ship travel a great vacation choice for couples and families. There are many types of cruises for every type of traveler such as: Family Cruises, Singles Cruises, Caribbean Cruises, Alaskan Cruises, Wedding Cruises, Themed Cruises, Mediterranean Cruises, and much more. Before you book your next cruise, you should be aware of important cruise travel considerations so that you ensure your cruise is fun and memorable. Below is a helpful guide to cruise ship travel:

1. The best time to take a cruise depends on the cruise travel destinations. For instance, the summer months are the best time to take an Alaskan Cruise and European Cruise. The winter months are more appropriate for the Caribbean. If you want a great deal, try traveling during the off season which is spring and fall. For instance, November in the Caribbean is the off season and a great time to get a cheap deal. You can consult with your local travel agent about any last minute sell offs being offered during the off season.

2. If you are looking to get a great deal on a cruise, book a vacation during the ‘shoulder season.’ This is the period right between the destination s low and high seasons. For instance, the cheapest time to go on an Alaskan cruise is May. As well, November/December is a great time to for a Caribbean Cruise. October and April is a good time for a Mediterranean cruise. You can get some great bargains when booking for the ‘shoulder season.’

3. The internet is a great resource for finding and booking a cheap cruise. It is also a handy comparison shopping tool that will help ensure that you are getting the best deal. You can take advantage of last minute deals, special promotions, and special off season prices. As well, you can often get a special discounted cruise vacation package.

4. Because there are only a few cruise ports, you may have to get a cheap flight to the cruise port. You can often get a combo fly cruise package. It is important to compare prices to see if you can get a better deal by purchasing the ticket independently. The fly cruise price will usually include transfers between the ship and the airport, which can increase the price. There are a number of cheap airline websites where you can find a great deal. You may want to book your flight online (or offline) a day before departure in case there are flight delays.

It can be difficult planning a vacation cruise, especially if it is your first time. It is important to know where you want to go and the type of cruise you want to take before you book. Fortunately, there are many ways to book your dream cruise while getting a great price. It just takes a little knowledge and research, and before you know it, you will be on the open water having the time of your life.
