Antalya (Turkey): With ancient cities hidden among forests with oxygen-rich air, Antalya is a holiday paradise offering much more than one might expect.
‘Antalya is situated at the end of a gulf, the namesake of the city, and extends over a green plateau that lies parallel to the sea. With its blue sea, luminous sky, the ever-changing color of its mountains and lush green vegetation, the city is a festival of colors.” Informed Dr. Sandeep Marwah Managing Director of NFTC- National Federation of Tourism And Transport Cooperatives of India Limited stationed at Hotel Rixos Downtown Antalya.
Today Antalya is one of the world’s best-loved tourist resorts, with numerous five-star hotels, holiday villages and entertainment establishments. Besides the chances Antalya offers for skiing on the mountains and then descending to the shore for a swim, the proximity of a great number of archaeological sites and ruins enhances its appeal. There are great works of art from different civilizations at every corner of the city said officer from the Tourism Department.
