New Legislation and Getting a Visa: Who Can Travel?
Legal individual travel has always required that citizens fall under one of the 12 permitted categories of travel to Cuba, a rule already in place before the November 2017 edict of Trump. However, the requirement is now legally binding and you must document your activities to demonstrate that you were there for legitimate reasons. (other than tourism).
According to the U.S. Embassy in Cuba's official website, trips may be completed for: 
·         Family visits
·         Official business of the U.S. government, foreign governments, and certain intergovernmental organizations
·         Journalistic activity
·         Professional research and professional meetings
·         Educational activities
·         Religious activities
·         Public performances, clinics, workshops, athletic and other competitions, and exhibitions
·         Support for the Cuban people
·         Humanitarian projects
·         Activities of private foundations or research or educational institutes
·         Exportation, importation, or transmission of information or information materials
·         Certain export transactions that may be considered for authorization under existing regulations and guidelines
In order to get a travel visa to Cuba, neither the U.S. Embassy in Havana nor the U.S Department of State in Washington, D.C. process applications, so you'll instead need to apply through the Cuban Embassy in D.C.
Booking Hotels and Logistics of Visiting Cuba
Because the Trump administration bans American support for military-funded establishments, coupled with hurricanes that ravaged the island in 2017, it can be a challenge to book a hotel room.
According to Trump officials, these new restrictions in Cuba were not intended to stop the country's tourism, but to "direct money and economic activity away from the Cuban military and security services "and towards companies owned by Cuban citizens.
These new laws are essentially intended to encourage visitors to eat in local restaurants, stay in local hotels (or private homes) and buy from local businesses— just make sure that you never go to restricted businesses or that you can be fined or arrested on your return to the United States.
Although Trump has discouraged traveling to Cuba with these new restrictions, the rich culture of this island can still be enjoyed. Since relations between the United States and Cuba under the Trump administration are suffering, be well prepared before you leave. Be sure to bring enough cash for your entire trip because it is easy to access American funds in Cuba and exchange them for the Cuban peso—is rather difficult.
Going Solo to Cuba
Authorized tour groups organize hotels, transport, meals and a route that complies with federal regulations requiring such tours to focus on cultural exchange, which means that they remain the most popular route for the United States. Citizens are coming to Cuba.
If you go solo, you will need a passport and a tourist card (which can be obtained at your departure airport) and of course you will have to arrange your own hotel and transport. A working knowledge of Spanish can also help, but remember that the island nation already has international tourist experience, so that there is already more than minimal tourist assistance.
The changes in Cuba policy apply not to travelers from other parts of the world, and Cuba is one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean for travelers from Canada and Europe. Several international hotel companies, such as Riu, Iberostar and Melia, have built large resorts in Cuban destinations such as Varadero that meet the expectations of skilled travelers worldwide. More than two million visitors visit Cuba every year.
Traveling by U.S. Commercial Airline and Ferry
Although some top U.S. airlines bid over the right to fly to Cuba in 2016, the 2017 restrictions have all but eliminated commercial airline travel between the two countries.
Charter flights originating mainly from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Tampa are still the only option for travelers to travel to Cuba by air from the USA. It is very unlikely that Cuba airlines will begin to offer flights to the United States. They would have to overcome important regulatory hurdles to do so at any time soon.
However, the direct ferry service between Florida and Havana could soon become reality. The legal process to do this was well under way before the 2017 restrictions— in fact, in March 2016 Carnival Cruise Lines announced that it had been approved to start cruising from Miami to Cuba, and the new travel restrictions do not affect this type of transit.
Flying From Canada, Cancun, Grand Cayman, and Jamaica
If you don't want to wait for U.S. airlines to start flying to Cuba, or you want to combine a visit to Cuba with a trip to a different Caribbean island, you have options, and not just to Havana but also a wide range of Cuban destinations.
Air Canada is currently flying daily between Toronto and Havana and Varadero, Cuba, while Cubana — the national airline of Cuba — operates between Toronto and Montreal and Havana, Varadero, Cienfuegos, Santa Clara and Holguín, and COPA Airlines operates daily flights between Toronto and Havana.
Cancun has long been the choice gateway for Americans who want to visit Cuba without drawing the attention of the United States. Although customs officials have tightened restrictions, you can still fly from Cancun to Havana. Cayman Airways also operates Grand Cayman and Jamaica flights to Havana.
Using the Havana Embassy
The United States The Havana embassy reopened in August 2015 with the restoration of full diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States. Although the relationship is now tightened by the Trump administration, this embassy will still help US citizens in Cuba in a variety of ways.
Services available in the United States Embassy in Havana includes applications for processing in new USA Passports, renewal of expired passports or replacement of stolen passports and the registration of the United States. Citizens who live, travel, or are born in Cuba.
The U.S. Embassy also provides federal income tax forms, services to notarize documents to be used in the United States, and limited assistance to U.S. citizen prisoners in Cuba as well as assistance in the shipment of remains of deceased U.S. citizens back to the United States or coordinating medical evacuations for U.S. citizens.
In an emergency situation, the U.S. Embassy will also assist in wiring money to citizens, but don't count on this option to help you if you simply run out of funds while visiting Cuba.
The United States Embassy also provides forms of federal income taxation, notarization services to be used in the United States and limited assistance to the United States. Citizen prisoners in Cuba and assistance in the shipment of deceased U.S. remains Citizens return to the United States or coordinate medical evacuations in the United States Citizens.

Best 12 Tourist Attractions Destination in Turkey

Packed to the brim with ancient monuments left over from a conquerors ' parade and endowed with scenery that never fails to impress, Turkey is a dazzling destination in Asia and Europe. Its vibrant culture, famous food and vast history wow all who venture here, while its glorious landscapes range from the sun-drenched Mediterranean to the mighty mountains and arid steppes. Whether you want to spend a city break with the Byzantine and Ottoman glories of Istanbul, laze on the beach, enter history wandering through ruins like Ephesus, or see some of the world's most surreal panoramas in Pamukkale and Cappadocia, this country has attractions galore.

1.     Aya Sofya

 Aya Sofya

Renowned as one of the world's most beautiful buildings, the spellbinding Byzantine glory of the Aya Sofya Museum (Hagia Sophia) is not only one of the best in Istanbul, but also in Turkey. The stunning majority of its exterior is bordered by the delicate minarets added after the Ottoman conquest, while the magnificent and cavernous frescoed interior is a great reminder of the power and power of old Constantinople. This famous monument is a must for all visitors to the country.

2.     Ephesus

2.     Ephesus

The mighty ruin of Ephesus is a town of colossal monuments and marble-columned roads, not to be missed. One of the most complete, still standing Roman cities in the Mediterranean region is the place where you can experience what life during the golden age of the Roman Empire must have been like. A sightseeing tour here takes at least half a day to cover the main highlights and longer if you really want to explore, so make sure you plan your visit so that you don't feel precipitated.

3.     Cappadocia

Cappadocia

The surreal rocky valleys of Cappadocia are the dream of each photographer. Cliffs and mountain ridges are home to rippling panoramas of wave-like rock or wacky-shaped pinnacles formed by thousands of years of wind and water. And if you don't want to walk for the views, this is one of the top destinations in the world for a hot air balloon ride. If the lunar scenery is not enough to tempt you, the frescoed rock-cut churches of the Byzantine era are nestled in these valleys, when this area was an important early Christian site.

4.     Topkapı Palace


Topkapı Palace

Beyond belief, the Topkapi Palace takes you into the fantastic, opulent sultan world. From here, the sultans of the Ottoman era created an empire that extended to Europe and the Middle East and to Africa. The interiors, with their decadently exuberant carving and sumptuous jewelry decoration, offer an unforgettable view of the power base of the Ottomans. The surrounding public gardens were once the sole property of the Royal Court, but are now open to the public and offer a peaceful, green break from the streets of the city.

5.     Pamukkale

Pamukkale

One of the most famous natural wonders of Turkey, the pure white Pamukkale travertine terraces (" Cotton Castle "in English) cascade down the slope, looking like a snowfield in the green countryside. Although the travertines themselves are a highlight of a tour of Turkey, the vast and rambling ruins of Roman Hierapolis, an ancient spa town, are situated on the top of this calcite hill. For the best pictures, come in the evening when the travertines glow under the horizon as the sun sinks.

6.     Sumela Monastery

Sumela Monastery

The Sumela Monastery (Monastery of the Virgin Mary) is the star attraction for visitors along the Black Sea coast with its amazing, solitary setting built into a cliff face. Walking around this abandoned religious complex, with its church interiors full of dazzling and vibrant frescoes, is a must for anyone on a long journey to the northeastern region of Turkey. The monastery began in the Byzantine era and was closed only in 1923. Today it is easy to imagine the isolated lives of the monks who once lived here, wandering through their empty cells.

7.     Mount Nemrut

Mount Nemrut

The top sightseeing drawcard for eastern Turkey, the funerary mountain of Mount Nemrut, is scattered with the broken remnants of once mammoth statues that kept it. This strange and solitary place must be one of the most strange archeological sites in Turkey. From the summit, the giant stone heads of long-forgotten gods cast an eerie atmosphere over the barren mountain top. The time to come is at sunrise, so that you can see the statues emerging from the darkness.

8.     Ani

Ani

The abandoned buildings of the powerful city of Ani on the Silk Road are abandoned on the plains near the modern border of Turkey with Armenia. Once the capital of Armenia, the golden age of Ani came to an end in the 14th century, after Mongolian raids, earthquake destruction and trade route raids all played a role in the decline of the city. The beautiful red brick buildings that still crumble in the middle of the steppe have a fascinating effect on everyone who visits. Don't miss the Redeemer Church or the St Church. Gregory still visible with his elaborate stone masonry and frescoes.

9.     Aspendos

Aspendos

Just south of Antalya, Marcus Aurelius ' rule is celebrated in the jaw-dropping mammoth bulk of the Roman Theater in Aspendos. Considered the finest surviving example of a classical theater that still exists in the world, it is one of the star attractions of antiquity. Although the theater is the main reason for a visit here - and for most visitors on a half-day trip from nearby Antalya or Side theater, there are more ruins to explore, if you have time, over a vast hilly area.

10. Cruising the Mediterranean

Cruising the Mediterranean

The Mediterranean coast of Turkey has ruins and bags of things to do, but for many people it's all about sunbathing while enjoying the beautiful views of the coast. For good reason, cruising on a yacht is the number one activity for visitors to Bodrum and Fethiye. The steep wooded slopes, hidden coves with tiny white sandy beaches and hundreds of islands are the perfect place to explore by sea. Even diehard property owners are impressed. One of the most famous trips is the "Blue Cruise "and it travels from Fethiye to the south of the coast until it reaches Olympus, home to the famous Chimaera natural phenomenon.

11. Pergamum

Pergamum

Turkey has an abundance of Greco-Roman ruins, but none of them can be placed in modern Bergama as romantically as ancient Pergamum. Once home to one of the most important libraries in the ancient world, the remaining temple remains of Pergamum now preside dramatically on a hilltop. It is an incredibly atmospheric place to explore, with an Acropolis area and a theater on the hillside overlooking its top floors. This is an excellent place to visit if you want a real sense of life in the Roman era.

12.   Ölüdeniz       


Ölüdeniz
Turquoise-blue water, possibly. Check. Check. Lush green forest falls to a white sandy beach. Check. Check. The sheltered inlet of Ölüdeniz, a short journey from Fethiye, is the most famous beach in Turkey, and with scenery that could well have fallen off a perfect postcard, it is easy to see why its popularity has not diminished. If the beach gets too crowded, it's time to go to the skies and enjoy the amazing aerial views of a tandem paragliding dive off the top of the mighty Babada alpine mountain, which rises behind the sea. Oh, did we say that Ölüdeniz is one of the top paragliding destinations in the world? Check. Check.
