Turkey is famous for its coffeehouses and delicious cuisine and you’ll be able to sample both in abundance wherever you decide to stay. When visiting one of the many bazaars in Turkey, you’ll see the country in its most traditional sense, with friendly locals, family businesses and Turkish specialities all jostling for space in the hustle and bustle of the marketplace. Istanbul is a more Westernised city than the rest of Turkey, but you’ll find the same rich examples of culture, food and family here too.

Turkey is a popular holiday destination for tourists and they flock to its many all-inclusive hotel complexes every year. Inevitably, there are cases of illness such as shigella that occur when hundreds of people all eat, swim and live together in close proximity. Shigella is caused by animal and insect faeces so it’s possible to ingest the intestinal infection through contaminated food or water. It can be spread easily from person to person by touching surfaces and handles that are infected by shigella.
