Family vacation in Turkey. Rest with children
In the list of countries for family vacations Turkey rightfully takes one of the first places. And there is nothing surprising - because the industry for family holidays here is more developed than anywhere else in the world. Holidays in Turkey with the whole family, with children comfortable, profitable and safe. All the advantages of family holidays in Turkey have long been appreciated not only by Russians but also many Europeans who are happy to return to Turkey again and again.
The best time to rest in Turkey
Among the obvious advantages of a holiday in Turkey with the whole family - visa-free border crossing, a wide choice of beaches, resorts, accommodation and meals, the widespread use of all inclusive systems (all inclusive), special conditions for children, a developed entertainment infrastructure. Turkey is washed by the Black Sea, Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, and it is not surprising that the beaches differ from each other. The beaches of the Aegean Sea are mainly pebbly, on the Mediterranean coast there are both pebble beaches and sandy. The season on the beaches of the Black Sea lasts from June to September. On the Aegean Sea is worth going from May to October. The longest season on the Mediterranean Sea - it lasts from April to November. The climate of the Mediterranean coast is milder, and acclimatization is faster. Keep in mind that in the hottest months - which is traditionally July and August - with children under 3 years is better not to go to the sea: the sun is too active, and will do more harm than good.
Hotels for recreation with children in Turkey
As a rule, hotels in Turkey, which specialize in receiving families with children, openly declare it. Such hotels always have family rooms, and the restaurant offers a children's menu, in rental centers you can rent equipment for children's leisure. Hotels actively invest in their own infrastructure - swimming pools or even small water parks with slides for children, children's clubs with all the necessary equipment, animators and babysitters to make sure that in the absence of parents nothing happens to the children, and help them communicate with each other. The clubs accept children from 4 years and older, here the kids can draw, play, watch cartoons. Usually there is at least one shady alley on the territory of the hotel, where you should start walking with your child, so he does not get sunburned. Well-established infrastructure helps both parents and children to relax without being tied to each other 24 hours a day, and everyone will have their own stock of impressions.
However, as always, completely relaxed, going on holiday with a child, even in hospitable Turkey, do not - the safety and comfort of the child must be in first place. For example, a children's pool must be served in compliance with all sanitary norms. If your baby - allergic, or adheres to a different menu, you should make sure that the hotel restaurant has products that he can eat. In the hotel, he will have to communicate with other children, so kids who are not used to communication may have problems at first, but usually after a short time kids start playing together, despite the language barrier. By the way, in Turkey, there is practically no - the staff of hotels and stores are mastering the Russian language, so the Russians to vacation in Turkey every year more and more comfortably.
Parents are often in doubt about whether to go with the baby in a hotel, working on an all-inclusive system (all inclusive). Experience shows that it is not only convenient, but also beneficial, because parents do not have to worry about how to feed a child if he gets hungry before dinner. You can always feed your baby at a convenient time for him, get a drink, a treat or fruit, and older children in general can eat on their own.
