Take in the Turkish Delight Festival in Istanbul

Events such as the Turkish Delight Festival continue to emphasise Istanbul's reputation for being a cultural melting pot.

The city really is a must-see for people taking Turkey holidays as there is so much going on all the time.

A huge number of competitions and exhibitions staged in the thriving metropolis each year have a distinctly international feel such as the Istancool fashion festival, which sees the world's finest designers converge on the city.

The Turkish Delight Festival is no different, as belly dancers from all around the world compete against each other for a cash prize.

It usually starts at the end of April and thousands of people are expected to line the streets to see the performances.

The event also includes gala evenings - where some of the finest dancers in Turkey will show off their skills - and a number of workshops aimed at helping people develop their own moves.
