The Youth Exhange will be organised in Denizli, an industrial modern city in the southwestern of Turkey. Denizli is a city of around 1 000 000 inhabitants, with a university and historical sights. It is the home of textiles and a touristic city with its thermal hotels, ancient city “Hierapolis” and the travertines. It is famous for Pamukkale, “The Eighth Wonder of the World“. It is unique and also in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Here you can take an online tour: https://www.turkeyholidaydiary.com/pamukkale-tourism-and-travertines/
The youngsters from different countries will be matched to their Turkish peers before coming to Denizli. As long as they stay in Denizli, they will be hosted by their peers’ families. Therefore they will be able to see the famous hospitability of Turkish people and make new friends/sisters/brothers while bridging new cultures.
The team leaders will stay at a hotel in the city center. The accommodation cost will be paid by the host partner.
Denizli Çardak airport stands as the best option as it’s the most convenient one. Firstly, take the flight to Denizli. The next thing to do would be to take the shuttle from the airport to the centre.
