In the middle of winter, you really want to give yourself a piece of summer, take a walk along the sea coast, taste delicious ripe fruits, and see historical sights. The ideal place to make your old dream come true is to visit Turkey in January.
The climate of Turkey is very mild, despite the fact that there is snow here, and there are even quite frosty days. January is cool here, the average air temperature does not exceed 16 ° C, on the sea coast, due to humid winds, no more than 12-14 ° C is felt even in bright sun. However, all this applies only to the beginning of the month, by mid-January the sun becomes more active, and tourists often even allow themselves to sunbathe by the pool.
Tourists traveling to Turkey in January are advised to bring warm clothing and umbrellas.
Going to Turkey in January, choose Kemer - perhaps at this time it is the only place where there are no heavy rains. In Alanya and Antalya from December to February there is just a record amount of precipitation - up to 400 mm.
Obviously, in such weather conditions, we are not talking about swimming either in the Mediterranean or in the Aegean Sea, the water temperature is approaching 7-10 ° C, the water surface is replaced by a wave. Lovers of water treatments can be advised to visit the warm springs.
However, New Year's Turkey is still attractive to Russians. Firstly, the cost of rest in December-January is democratic, and time can be spent on a variety of tours and excursions to the sights of the once great Ottoman Empire.
The long-awaited holidays and weekends can also be celebrated in a completely atypical setting: in the very center of the carnival party, of which the resorts of Turkey are rich. Even the weather changes associated with rainy periods cannot spoil the mood of the holiday, which can be transferred to a hotel room, local bar or restaurant with cuisine that is famous for Turkish resorts throughout the world.
Not many people know that Turkey offers its guests ski resorts in January. The snowy slopes and specially equipped ski slopes of Uludag are just the perfect place to spend a few days of winter holidays. The snow cover is not great, so snowmakers work here. Artificial snow differs little from real snow, and in numerous rental centers, craftsmen select just the perfect lubricants for skis and snowboards.
