Turkish baths (hamam) have been popular in Turkey for thousands of years. The Ottomans perfected the hamam, which had three rooms: the grand, steamy hot room for steam-soaking and massage; the warm room for washing with soap and water; and the cool room for relaxation. A Turkish bath is not only a good way to experience something typically Turkish whilst on holiday but they are also very good for your body. A Turkish bath will improve both your body and mind, relieve stress, improve blood circulation and muscle tension whilst cleansing the skin. It's also known to help prepare your skin for a more even, deep suntan.
