So, if you want to plan a holiday for your mom but are undecided, we offer you some attractive suggestions. Here are some enjoyable holiday routes you can gift to your mom.

Spa Retreat

During these weeks when the sun hasn't fully shown its scorching face yet and we can call it a relatively mild period, a spa retreat can be one of the best options for your mom. In our country, where thermal pools and saunas with natural spring water are quite popular, there are places you can visit in 7 regions for this purpose. One of them is Pamukkale. Located in Denizli and one of the most important centers of the country's tourism, Pamukkale offers a delightful holiday with its healing waters and dazzling white travertines.
