Surrounded by tall mountains and covered in fertile lands, Aydın Province enjoys what some call a perfect climate. This Mediterranean region has it all--from hot springs and rivers to its popular coastal tourist resorts. Thanks to the abundant production of figs, olives, and citrus trees, the local cuisine thrives; locals recommend the special Turkish pastries. A distinctive feature of regional culture is Zeybek folk art, which includes bird-like war dances to traditional instruments. Invigorate yourself with the Mediterranean pleasures this vacation spot has to offer.
