Tourism stats show Turkey is a year-round destination

a href="http://www.adventurecompany.co.uk/europe/turkey">Turkey holidays are always associated with red hot sunshine and luscious beach resorts, but there is far more to the nation than that.

The country - which lies between Europe and Asia - is not just a fantastic place to visit in the summer months, as there are plenty of things to see and do all year round.

Adventure travellers are increasingly attracted to the destination's charms and urban locations such as Istanbul are becoming more popular than ever.

New statistics released by the Tourism Ministry have indicated that nearly an extra one million people visited Turkey in January when compared with the same month in 2011, Reuters reports. This further reiterates the point that Turkey is not just popular at the height of summer.

Istanbul in particular is very accessible in the winter, as daytime temperatures are still warm compared to the average English winter and popular sights such as the Blue Mosque and Bosphorus Bridge are visually stunning regardless of the time of year.
