Fall in Love with Istanbul This Fall

September 27, 2019 Destination Global No Comments Email Email

With the start of fall comes a brand-new season that showcases destinations with new weather and new colors. For any fall-focused story you might be working on, I wanted to share the top 6 reasons to visit Istanbul this fall.

1. Getting to Istanbul has never been easier, as Turkey’s national flag carrier Turkish Airlines, which flies to more countries than any other airline in the world, currently operates flight routes to 315 destinations from 11 gateway cities in North America! Turkish Airlines recently announced a new fleet of brand-new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners with an unmatched business class offering with flying chefs, an immersive stopover program and luxury features aboard such as Versace amenity kits.

2. The fun starts before one even leaves the airport, as the New Istanbul Airport, which is celebrating its first year this October, offers travelers multi-faceted experiences by incorporating creative architectural design, authentic culinary offerings and several artistic components including live bands and even an art museum within. Fun fact: The business class lounges at the New Istanbul Airport will be able to accommodate 200 million passengers a year upon final phase completion.

3. The weather is unbeatable in Istanbul in the fall; the Mediterranean climate is pleasantly mild and the crowds of tourists from the summer high-season have dispersed, allowing travelers to experience a more authentic, less crowded destination.

4. For those who want to step back in time beyond touring the old city, stay at Ciragan Palace Kempinski, built in a former sultan’s palace. Guests can even stay in the Sultan’s Suite, a truly lavish and ornate suite offering panoramic views of the magnificent Bosphorus. The property has several on-site dining options such as Tugra and features a luxury spa, where guests can enjoy the traditional Turkish treatment dating back centuries at a Turkish Hammam

5. For those who are into a more futuristic , Westernized hotel stay, they need look no further than Raffles Istanbul, located in the Zorlu Center mall complex. Raffles Istanbul is hosting Michelin Two-Star Chef Paco Roncero at the on-site restaurant Rocca for a technology-infused culinary experience. For those in Istanbul September 27-November 3, they will not want to miss booking a night at this truly revolutionary dining pop-up, Paco Meets Raffles Istanbul.

6. If you cannot make it to Turkey this Fall, you can certainly bring Turkey home to you! The Turkey Promotion Group has been working vigorously to share the magic of Turkey with the world, promoting exports that are as unique as they are high-quality. Whether you want to get some early holiday gifts like soft Turkish towels, beautiful high-quality jewelry from Turkish designers, or savor delicious dried fruits and nuts, which Turkey is leading the world in for exports, Turkish goods are available in national retailers near you. For retail lists, high-resolution images and samples of Turkish dry fruits please reach out to us directly.
