As traditional Turkish baths, also known as hamams, can be traced back to the 15th century, it goes without saying that they have played an important role in Turkish society for a long time. As well as providing bathing facilities, Turkish baths were traditionally seen as places for friends and neighbours to meet for both social and business reasons, and as somewhere that reinforced the social status of its visitors.

If you’re a Turkish bath newbie you might feel a little daunted, but here are a few reasons why this will probably be one of the best experiences of your MedSailors Turkey sailing trip.
