Is there any such cruise that we can take from Kabatas at about 5:30 or 6 PM and then return to Kabatas / Eminou at around 10:30 - 1100 PM. What would be the best options available? We are not so keen on dinner etc, however commentary or at least an audio guide would be a must. Thanks in Advance

      Selcuk Nov 13, 2015 at 8:58 PM

      We are to arrive at Izmir Airport at around 10:20 am and wish to process to Selcuk where we are staying for a while. One reads that Izmir-Selcuk train (there is one at 11:45 am) is a cheap option and that the railway station at the Izmir Airport is easily accessible. However some reviewers have commented that the trains which start from Izmir are crowded and getting on them with luggage and then getting a seat is a problem. Is it really that bad? Anyone with personal experience to help us decide please?

      Goreme Nov 18, 2015 at 1:44 AM

      We are travelling to Goreme next May and will reach Goreme at about 4 pm. We plan to spend two clear days after that. After reading suggestions on VT, we have decided to take the Hot Air Balloon and the Green Tour on Day One. The next day we plan to NOT take a tour but take a Dolmus to Uchisar and hike down the Pigeon Valley in the morning. Later, take a Dolmus to Cavusin and go up to Red Valley Plateau and thereafter to Avanos, Pasabag and Zelve. Request for 1. Comments and Suggestions on the overall plan. Can we do anything better? 2. Guidance on the second day when would be on our own.3. On the day we arrive, we have some hours before sunset. What can be done during this period? Is there time enough to go to Love Valley? We do not wish to visit Goreme Open Air Museum. Thanks

    • Where to shop and does it really look dead?

      by nur2o Online Now Jun 13, 2015 at 5:01 PM


      I will be visiting Kas with my family this summer. Now, I've read quite a lot about Kas already and know that it's a small town with very little tourism, which is amazing. I've also read a lot about the restaurants and nightlife and it all seems nice. Although, I've seen a lot of cities in Turkey and the shopping was quite amazing in most cities, I haven't found anything on Kas. I did see some pictures of a few old shops with souvenirs and hardly any people.. Is it really dead there or were these pictures taken at unfortunate times? Is it really that peaceful and silent?

      Anyhow, where could I shop for clothes and shoes etc. (fake designer stuff). I'm such a dork, I know. Also, is it really that dead?

    • Looking for help with Kas activities

      by kat135 Online Now Sep 5, 2011 at 5:23 PM

      I'd like to kayak over the sunken city & visit Meis island. I've found different tours to do these separately, but was wondering if there is a boat trip that possibly does both in one excursion. Also, I'm curious as to if spending time exploring the city of Kas is something I should also plan for. I am driving through to Antalya, and wondered if it'd be better to spend the time in another town to expore, as my time is limited.

      Thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me.

      Kaş- town or peninsula

      by LostinParadiseTR Online Now May 30, 2010 at 6:38 AM

      I'm thinking of a weeks holiday in Kaş in the autumn (late Sept or early Oct). I wondered if anyone who knows the town could advise me of the pros and cons of staying in the town itself or out on the peninsula? I dont want to just sit on the beach every day ...I want to explore the town, and organise trips to Elmali and Yeşil Göl .... and maybe other interesting places. But I am wondering if I stay in a town center pansiyon or small hotel .... will there be a decent place to swim in the sea nearby? Also, which are the quieter parts of the town center (or is it all fairly quiet?)
