Spend your New Year in Turkey - New Year 2017

20th December 2016

Have you considered welcoming in the New Year in any of these fabulous locations across Turkey.


Istiklal Street in the City center is the place to be in Istanbul for the New Year’s countdown!  The party like atmosphere, food and drink and an amazing fire work display are ready and waiting to bring in the New Year. If you want to enjoy the fireworks but escape the crowds then you can also watch them from a distance or in a quieter area like the Galata Tower, which is a popular alternative.

But if you want to try something a little different why not try a romantic dinner on a Bosphorus cruise instead? Many tourist agents are offering special packages for New Year’s trips so you can enjoy a special meal as you gently cruise the waters. You can also finish the night by watching the New Year’s fireworks.  See Packages here


The historic city of Kaleiçi is a popular place to visit if you want to enjoy the New Year’s celebrations. Firework displays, parties and much more are all held around the city and you’ll be sure to have an amazing time. But if Kaleiçi is a little far away out for you then don’t worry many hotels and resorts around Antalya also hold their very own New Year’s events and celebrations.  (Head for 'LARA BEACH' where you will find lots of large hotels offering new year package deals)


In the Bodrum town center you’ll find an amazing selection of bars, cafes and other venues all offering their very own New Year’s events. These range from raving parties and fireworks to more muted events and dinners, so if you feel like a quiet celebration or want to go all out and enjoy partying till dawn you’ll be sure to find both those and much more on offer in Bodrum. 


One of the largest cities in Turkey Izmir offers a great array of New Year’s celebrations and you’ll find a variety of nightclubs and venues offering a range of celebratory events.

The Malibu Night Club, Club Moskva Izmir and the Diamond Night Club are just three of the places already planning big parties to end and start the New Year in style. You might not even have to venture that far though as many hotels like Movenpick Hotel Izmir and Marlight Boutique Hotel are just two of the hotels already planning New Year’s parties.


Many hotels offer packages, which include, accommodation, meal, entertainment, drinks, all at a fixed price. Many deals are very purse friendly too.

Family friendly, inexpensive, great hospitality- the Turkish people are know famous for their hospitality.

Internal flights with Turkish airlines and Pegasus are very reasonable, or you can always take an adventurous road trip.
