Vize in Kırklareli: This small, slow-moving and peaceful town in the northwestern province of Kırklareli is located near Turkey’s border with Greece and Bulgaria, attracting a growing number of visitors with its forests, rainfalls, lakes and the Northern Sea coastline.

Rize is known for its “linden” – a special leaf used in Turkish tea – and features many food, culture and archaeological projects. Rize is the place to go and see how Turkish culture has been influenced by the culture of The Balkans

Aizanoi (Ancient Greek: Αἰζανοί), Latinized as Aezani was an ancient city in western Anatolia. Located in what is now Çavdarhisar, Kütahya Province, its ruins are situated astride the River Penkalas, some 1,000 m (3,300 ft) above sea level. The city was an important political and economic centre in Roman times; surviving remains from the period include a well-preserved Temple of Zeus, unusual combined theatrestadiumcomplex, and macellum inscribed with the Price Edict of Diocletian. The city fell into decline in Late Antiquity. Later serving as a citadel, in 2012 the site was submitted for inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage

spectacular little valley at the farthest edge of Turkey. It was cut in two in 1921 by the vagaries of international politics, and remained off-limits to outsiders until the ’90s for its sensitive position on the Cold War border. The lower part of the valley belongs to Georgia. The top part, with six tiny villages, is made almost inaccessible by an atrocious unpaved road that crosses a snow-bound mountain and descends into a rain forest of almost tropical luxuriance. The villagers speak a dialect of Georgian and sing ancient polyphonic songs. The local honey is famously food.

Mr Nihat Gökyiğit, a leading Turkish businessman who is also a founder of TEMA, the environmental foundation, has now built a top-notch guesthouse in his native village. It attracts nature groups and the occasional traveller drawn here by the lure of the unbeaten path. The setting is beautiful and there is almost infinite scope for hiking expeditions. But it is the sense of being somewhere special that makes Maçahel an unforgettable experience. WARNING: Foreigners need permission from the armed forces to visit the area. The hotel can help with the formalities, but passport details have to be submitted two months in advance.

Saklikent Gorge is a beautiful natural wonder that attracts visitors from all over the region.  Its about 1-2km long.  Make sure you bring or rent watershoes. Go early if possible. And carry as less stuff as possible with you. It would be ideal to go in just swimwear and a camera and enough cash to get you inside.
