James Bond's Skyfall showcases best of Turkey

Tomorrow's release of new James Bond film Skyfall has been eagerly anticipated in Turkey.

The twenty-third film, starring Daniel Craig as martini-swilling ladykiller James Bond, showcases some of Turkey's most spectacular spots.

Daniel Craig filming Skyfall in Fethiye.

Istanbul's Grand Bazaar has been used - marking the third time in 50 years that Istanbul has been used in a Bond film.

Summery Fethiye beaches also feature in the film, as well as historical Adana, in the country's south east.

Turkey has also featured in Bond films From Russia with Love (1963) and The World is Not Enough (1999). The country's diverse landscapes make the country an ideal backdrop for a fast-paced action thriller.
