info about Kalkan turkey
Am I alone in not wanting to be hassled into going into bars and restaurants by staff? Is it a cultural thing because on principle we never go into places where staff are paid to stand outside and beg us to eat there? More business would be done if U.K tourists were left alone. Now money is short sometimes you only want a drink but there is big pressure so we do less promenading the way one does in Spain and France. After eight wonderful holidays there we are trying to avoid feeling constantly uncomfortable by choosing to go back to Spain next year instead.

Hi Kalkan experts, Inspired by the great pages on Kalkan and the surrounding area to think about holidaying there this Easter (10 days from 22nd Apr 2011). However, I wanted to check that places like restaurants, bars and trip companies will be fully up and running at this time as I realise a lot of things shut up shop over the winter. Does anyone have any experience of Kalkan this early in the year and can give some advice about whether our holiday will be limited by chosing to go early? Thanks for any advice! Laura

I visited Kalkan back in 2002 and bought a kaftan/cover-up?? from Yousuf the Tailor in a little side street in Kalkan. I would love to find out if it is possible to buy from him again of if he is still there? I really enjoy relaxing in my kaftan but it is getting a little past its wearable date.. I would appreciate any help in locating this tailor. Many thanks in advance. Yvonne Andrews
Hi all, I suppose this is a general Turkey question but I've posted it here since my holiday will be in Kalkan in Sep 08. Is it better the exchange British pounds in Turkey than in UK? I heard you get a better deal if you exchange in Turkey, if that's the case, where's the best place to do this? Cheers, Emma
Hi Everyone, I am a new member and have read through most of the responses and they are all very helpful. Most of the information I've found has come from this website. I am going to Kalkan and flying into Dalaman first. What is the best way to get to Kalkan? Drive or private airport transfer? Would it be better to rent a car for our whole stay in Kalkan (5days). We hope to visit Kas, Kekova, the Gorge etc. I believe there are buses, dolumuses but I'm just worried that they don't run too frequently. On the other hand, not sure how the driving/parking is and especially the 2h transit time from the airport to Kalkan. Any suggestions would be helpful. Please advise and thanks for your help! Happy Travels!

First of all, I am very impressed by all the helpful hints about Kalkan posted on this site. Hopefully, you'll have some insight for me... We (my fiance and I) are planning to honeymoon in Kalkan in April/May of 2008, and we're planning to fly into and depart from Istanbul. What's the best (cheapest, quickest, or most enjoyable) way to travel from Istanbul to Kalkan and from Kalkan to Istanbul?
