Turkey is a fantastic holiday destination

Turkey is a destination that should feature high on Aussies' travel itineraries when they embark on a tour around Europe.

Thanks to its gorgeous climate and stunning beaches, the nation is ideal for people who want to top up their tans.

It is also very affordable too – especially if you avoid the main tourist traps in places like Istanbul.

Aussies looking for the best exchange rates should remember that Turkey has not officially joined the eurozone, so you need to search for Turkish lira.

However, many restaurant and bar owners across the country tend to accept euros as well.

One representative of GotoTurkey.co.uk said the country is particularly appealing to couples – both young and old.

"A favourite is a romantic city break in mesmerising Istanbul, though the vibrant Aegean city of Izmir is a good alternative," the spokesperson commented.

Both of these places are renowned for their vibrant nightlife and there are plenty of bars and restaurants in which to spend your overseas travel money.
