      Marmaris Yesterday


      Me and my wife a looking to head to Turkey for our 1 year anniversary (we are 24 and 26 years old). We plan to mainly relax at the resort but we'd also like to swim with dolphins, chill by the beach and possibly do some watersports. Which town do you think would suit us better? Also which town embodies more of the Turkish culture and less of the British holiday party scene?

      Thanks! :)

      Safety in southeast Turkey...

      Turkey Feb 9, 2015 at 1:53 PM

      Hope all is well...
      I imagine there are no easy answers out there, but I just wanted to get a sense of what people have experienced in their travels to southeast Turkey...
      I have been invited to join a group travelling to Rayhanli, Turkey to spend a week working with kids and teens at a Syrian refugee camp. While I realize no one can possibly predict the unpredictable, before I commit, I am trying to gather any relevant information that anyone may have about the how things are going in that part of the country. My trip wouldn't be until late-April...
      For the most part, I am very excited about the opportunity to contribute to those in need. However, I can't help being somewhat concerned about general safety in the region... Any/all feedback, advice, insight is welcome...
      Thanks in advance!
      Happy travels!

    • Seeking advice on Turkey and Greece

      Turkey Feb 20, 2015 at 6:38 AM

      I have two weeks from 23rd May to 6th June. There will two families - 4 adults and 3 children.

      We're planning to visit Turkey, see the more famous places - some days in Istanbul, then Ephesus, Cappadocia, the underground cities, perhaps even Pamukkale.

      Since it's so close, we would also like to see Athens and a beautiful island in Greece (perhaps Corfu?)

      I haven't travelled in some years and I feel a little lost. Can some kind soul please advise me on how to plan this trip?
      I'm looking at family-friendly budget options - the Indian rupee is not a strong currency now.

      I'd be grateful if somebody could get this started.

      Thanks in advance

      I'm considering going to Kusadasi on a holiday, so Im browsing hotels... With my travel agent I have a possibility of staying in Sealight Resort Hotel. i've read that it is located 5km from city centre, 1 Km from the Marina, so I would like to know if there are shops, cafes, etc on the way to town, or if it is not possible to walk from this hotel into the centre. That's because I hate to stay in the middle of nowhere, having only the resort facilities. I like being able to go into town, not needing a taxi. What other suggestions do you have where I could stay and be able to profit from the sea but be near town at walkable distance?

If we travel by dolmus to Epheus, and then from Ephus we take a Dolmus to Selcuk. Can we then take a taxi to the Virgin Mary House? Where would we catch a taxi? Do we have to ask the taxi to wait or will can we find another one to take us back to the dolums stop to get back to kusadasi. How much should the taxi cost to get from Selcuk to the Virgin Mary House and back again?
      Should we just rent a car in Kusadasi and drive to Epheus and then on to the Virgin Mary house in Selcuk? Are the roads easy to navigate? Is the parking easy to access and how much does it cost to park? I would prefer to drive myself, and if it is EASY to get around, then I wouldn't mind doing that. Is there a car rental place near the port where cruise ships dock?
