Nothing is better than a late summer getaway to Turkey with one of the Leading airlines in The region, ‘’Turkish airlines”

Turkey is known as one of the top tourist destinations in the region, and what makes it more special is that every city is as beautiful and tourist-friendly as the other cities in Turkey. This time we are heading to Antalya, one of the most popular Turkish resorts, which is famous for its clean beaches and beautiful nature.

But what makes our journey more memorable, is to fly under the roof of Turkish airlines Aircraft and enjoy their 5-star hospitality. Turkish airlines operates scheduled services to 315 destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas.

Exploring Antalya with Turkish Airlines

All flights to Antalya have a layover in Istanbul when you travel from Qatar, so we took our first flight from hamad international airport toward the new Airport of Istanbul aboard the Airbus A321 Business Class and we, luckily, got the chance to fly in the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on our way to Antalya from Istanbul.

The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner has a seating capacity of 300 passengers, including 270 economy class seats and 30 business class seats. Regarded as one of the most advanced aircraft for its fuel efficiency and range flexibility, the Dreamliners can fly 14,140 km and carry more cargo as compared to the previous models.

1. Kurşunlu Waterfall

The waterfall and its pool are reached by descending 91 stone steps—a pleasant descent into coolness, shade, and moisture. At the bottom are short walkways to wander around the falls and pool, but not a lot of benches for sitting.

There’s free parking at Kurşunlu, but a small charge per person for admission.

2. Duden Waterfall

For exploration of the great outdoors a wonderful option just out of Antalya is the Duden Waterfall. About 14 kilometres away from the South East beaches of Antalya the Duden River spouts off the higher plateau of the Taurus Mountains. They are located in a luscious green landscape, surrounded by trees and plants.
