Best times to visit Turkey
Turkey offers three different climates zones, so the best time to visit the country depends on your preferences. As a halal-friendly destination for families and couples, Turkey generally experiences sunshine in the summer months from June to September and milder temperatures during winter.
The hot summers have temperatures in the low to mid-30 degrees Celsius. The best time to visit Istanbul is between March to May and September to November. Crowds in the city are also manageable during this time. Antalya has dryer periods in June to September.
The warmest month is July with an average high of 34 degrees Celsius so most hotels feature air conditioning. Cappadocia has a continental climate with peak hot summers in July and August with temperatures of 32 degrees Celsius, so this would be the best time to visit for a hot summer. It does get dry but the heat is still manageable. Colder months fall between November and March and snow is usually experienced as early as November so it could be best to avoid the region at this time.
