Turkey

Turkey has long been the intersection of East and West. Istanbul literally stands on two continents and there isn't a place more exotic, more of a mixture, with more unique cultural marks than Turkey. Perhaps the most notable example is the Hagia Sophia, which has stood as both a Christian cathedral and Muslim mosque several times, now serving as a museum serving a beautiful example of co-existence and respect. The natural beauty of Turkey can't be overstated - huge hot springs in the middle of prairies, the unique blues of the Mediterranean Sea, gorgeous cities, and more.

Come to Turkey and you won't be disappointed, and if you have a little more time, combine this trip with some time in Greece too.
