The Ancient City of Ephesus
When visiting Turkey, the ancient ruins of Ephesus are a must see! The ruins date back thousands of years and are sure to provide you a great photo opportunity as well as being able to take in lots of history.
Ephesus was an ancient port city and was once considered to be the most important trading center in the Mediterranean region. Will you perch on a rock or climb ancient steps like a medieval emperor? No matter where you choose to place your tripod or personal photographer, your backdrop is sure to turn heads…just hopefully not the stone ones!
The Ghost Town of Kayaköy
Once known as Levissi, the abandoned village of Kayaköy was once home to around 10,000 people. A combination of historic events led to the decline of Kayaköy’s population but it was a 7.1 magnitude earthquake in 1957 that deserted the town for good.
The ghost town has an eerie aura about it, and it’s sure to translate to some other-worldly social media pictures.
Bodrum Town is one of the most photogenic places in Turkey. The best time to visit is earlier in the day when there are less crowds but you can still take in the town in all its beauty.
With quaint cobbled streets and lots of brightly coloured flowers and doorways, your Instagram feed is sure to get a rainbow injection. In Bodrum Old Town you can find bustling shopping streets where you can pick up traditional gifts and treats to take home.
Take some time away from the centre of town and explore the beauty of Bodrum’s windmills. These are some of the most famous landmarks in the Bodrum peninsula and are mostly situated on top of a hill between central Bodrum and nearby holiday resort Gumbet.
They overlook the beautiful Bodrum Bay on one side and Gumbet Bay on the other side, giving stunning photo backdrops from all angles. There are plenty of windmills to choose from, but the hardest decision will be choosing the best angle to make the most of the towering turrets and deep blue bays.
Butterfly Valley, Fethiye
Butterfly Valley in Fethiye is a hidden gem which can only be accessed via water and is home to diverse species of butterflies. The valley is situated at the foothill of Babadağ, a 6,480 ft high mountain with a wide sandy beach protruding from the valley.
There are so many beautiful photo opportunities when riding the waves to the beach, as well as plenty of shots to snap when you reach Butterfly Valley. The valley is rich in flora and fauna, making it the perfect habitat for so many butterfly species.
Strike a pose and if you’re lucky a butterfly may just flutter by!
Antalya has plenty of waterfalls to choose from but no matter which you pick, you’re guaranteed to snap that perfect wet and wild picture. Düden and Kurşunlu falls tend to be most popular, with tourists flocking to take in the flowing waters in all their glory.
