Tour prices in Turkey in September – 2022
The prices of tours to Turkey in September can not but rejoice. After crossing the line of “September 1” everything suddenly becomes cheaper, the demand decreases, and hoteliers are trying to lure tourists by attractive prices at once. Now is the time to choose a better hotel and pay less than in summer. There is no point in looking at 3* and 4* hotels, because the difference from 5* may be only a few thousand rubles.
The “air sanctions” in 2022 have made adjustments to the prices for tours. There is no more budget rest up to 50,000 ₽. What are the prices of tours to Turkey in September? The budget A’s don’t seem so cheap anymore. Tours to Hedef Resort & Spa 5*, Asia Beach Resort & Spa 5*, Club Hotel Anjeliq 5* cost from 112,000 ₽ for two adults with all-inclusive or ultra all-inclusive meals.
Holidays for two at Galeri Resort 5* can be had from 141,000 ₽, Aydinbey Gold Dreams 5* from 132,000 ₽, and Diamond Hill Resort 5* from 153,000 ₽. While doing this review, we looked at “last year’s” prices and cried – they were exactly 2 times lower.
Turkey in September – all inclusive
Remember this system – choose ONLY “all inclusive” and “ultra all inclusive”. It is proven by years of experience, never breakfasts-lunches-dinners in the cafe will be more profitable than the food at the hotel. Now, not all cafes can pay with a MIR card, so the “all inclusive” will save you a lot of headaches.
If you go with children, then there should be no doubts at all. A well-fed child = a satisfied child. And this is a pledge of peace of mind for parents. If your baby’s appetite is not strictly at lunch and dinner, take “ultra all inclusive” – the food will be non-stop. When you want it, you eat it. And a bonus – snacks, ice cream and scones gezleme.

September in Turkey is rich in festivals and holidays. In the resort of Alanya after September 20 begins an international jazz festival. Musicians from different countries come to the event and the entrance is free.
The Grape Holiday is celebrated in Manisa in mid September. The grapes are especially ripe and sweet at this time. The program includes performances of Turkish artists, contests, songs. The festival marks the end of the “grape” season. The Diyarbakir Watermelon Harvest Festival is held in Diyarbakir. The festival is celebrated with all the Turkish fanfare, with songs and dances and, of course, tasting different varieties of watermelons.
Features of vacations
The main feature of Turkey in September is that autumn comes to the resorts at different times. The water in the Aegean Sea cools faster than in the Mediterranean. Waves and storms are also possible, although they pass in just 1-2 days. The daytime thermometer readings at the resorts around Antalya remain the highest.
There are fewer tourists, but they all choose warmer resorts, so the difference in Alanya or Antalya may not be noticed. The evenings can be cool, when the air cools down to +18+20°C. In addition, there is no heating in the hotels, so sometimes you have to sleep under a warm blanket.

Entertainment in Turkey
Photos from an independent trip to Fazelis
What to do in September at the Turkish resorts? The choice of entertainment for tourists is large. It depends on what kind of vacation – active or not so active.
➢ For those who are for relaxation: many 4 and 5 star hotels offer hamam and spa services. The cost of the procedure starts at $15.
➢ It is also possible to arrange shopping in local shopping centers – Antalya is good for this.
➢ Extremes will be interesting diving, surfing and paragliding.
For young people there are lots of clubs and discos in Antalya, Kemer, Bodrum and Marmaris.
Almost every major resort has ancient monuments and interesting artifacts. Some can be reached either by organized or by yourself. I went from Kemer to Fazelis by public transport – no language problems.

(where the Red Tower, the fortress, the Damlatas Cave and the Archaeological Museum)
- Side (Old city)

Family vacation with children in Turkey is also possible. Firstly, many good hotels have mini-clubs and animation for kids. Secondly, until the end of the tourist season are water parks (Dolusu Park, Water Planet) and theme parks (The Land of Legends, Dino Park).
The ruins and SEALs of Ephesus
Between the beach and the buffet, you can hop on a tour. Personally, I’m not a big fan of sealing on a sun lounger day in and day out and rack up 2-3 trips for a vacation for sure. I usually look for excursions in advance on the services:
- In Russian – Tripster and Sputnik
- In English – Getyourguide.
Excursions are organized by local or professional guides. The format is a group or individual. The choice in Turkey is large, and this pleasure is inexpensive. On average, $40 per person.

Palms in the village of Tekirova
Turkey with children in September would be a good idea for the Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea. But more for the former, of course. With the kids is better to consider locations with sandy beaches and gentle and safe entrance to the sea, for example:
With an older child, there are more options. Despite the pebbles families will be comfortable in:
In September, there are water parks, dinopark in Kemer and amusement parks. Children can be taken on excursions, if you are sure that the child will stand the road and it will be interesting.

Travel reports about Turkey in September
A road in Lara district, Antalya
What do tourists say about holidays in Turkey in September 2021? Reviews, mostly positive. But there are those who were unlucky with the weather (they are few).
My wife and I go to Alanya every year in September. In the first half of the sea we get by running on the heated sand. And if we walk, only from shade to shade. It is hot and we have problems with appetite. But the water is like fresh milk. And with the second half of the month is usually already easier and more pleasant.
For five years in a row we go with my husband to Kemer in September. The temperature runs up to 38 degrees usually, strong stuffiness we do not feel. We sunbathe either before dinner, or after three. We are seventh decade, the heat is easily tolerated.
My feedback I went in the second half of the month and the Mediterranean, and the Aegean Sea. The first two days in Kemer was under 40 degrees, plus humidity – a little heavy. Then I got used to it and I didn’t feel any conveniences. Water and air as it is necessary, has typed excursions.
In Bodrum in the evenings already appeared piercing wind. Though day there was a comfortable weather. As a whole, I FOR September and May. And here at the end of July or August heat would have driven me crazy:)
