    • Design a custom made locket possibility

      Istanbul Yesterday

      Will be in Istanbul Turkey for 4 nights in 2016. A while back while walking on the beach I found a sanddollar about the size of a quarter. I've always wanted to find a locket with a clear (Glass) face that I could display the sanddollar in and wear. I wondered if it would be possible to have such a locket made while in Istanbul and if so where would I start to locate someone to design and make one for me.

      First trip to Turkey - Izmir

      Izmir Aug 22, 2015 at 7:41 AM

      Hey !

      This autumn i a going to visit Turkey and particularly Izmir, and the region around it. Also maybe i will visit Istanbul, too. I would like some information to ask.

      I live in Athens , Greece.
      The transfer is possible by ship or by plane. I would like to recommend me websites where i can check all the possible prices and all of that information about the transportation from Athens to Izmir.

      In Turkey i will stay about 2-3 weeks. Do I need a passport; I had read that the trip from Greece to Turkey needs only the ID. Is that true?

      Also can someone tell me what papers should I have with me during my stay there.

      The currency conversion from euro to Turkish lira where and how that can be done? In the airport where i am living or when i arrive at izmir?

      Thanks!

    • Is Marmaris suitable for families?

      Marmaris Aug 22, 2015 at 8:38 AM

      Hi, I'm new to this site and I tried to post a Q earlier before I signed up. Now I can't seem to find it so apologies if this repeats what I asked before!

      We are thinking about booking for next July and this will be our first time in Turkey. We are a family of 5, kids aged 13, 11 and 10. We have no idea which resort may suit us and are looking at Marmaris, icmeler and olu deniz.

      We don't want anywhere rowdy with stag/hen type groups but want some life and atmosphere. We always go self catering so somewhere with lots of restaurants (that cater for fussy unadventurous kids!) and bars with some light child friendly entertainment.

      Also, we like places with a variety of activities/sights to keep us amused.

      Can anyone advise of a nice resort with a beach suitable for kids (ie shallow, calm water) that ticks these boxes??! Suggestions of other areas welcome too. We have no idea where to start!

      Thanks in advance....

      First Trip to Turkey

      Turkey Aug 3, 2015 at 7:29 AM

      Hello once more. I am leaning more toward an all Turkey trip now other than a Greece-Turkey combo as previously posted. Though, that's still on the table.
      What I want to ask is opinions on the West (Aegean) versus the Central. The west of course has all the great Greco/Roman sites while the Central has the capital of Ankara, Cappadocia and the Hittite sites.

      Of course, the final decision would be solely up to me, all comments are welcome.
      The only additional tidbit I can provide is trip would be 11 days.

    • Aegean base for 3-4 days: Bodorum, Marmaris, or Fethiye?

      Turkey Aug 14, 2015 at 11:38 AM

      I’m traveling with two smart curious girls, ages 13 and 16. We take the overnight train from Istanbul getting into Izmir at 9AM on a Tuesday. The following Sunday we’ll take the ferry to Rhodes from Bodorum, Marmaris, or Fethiye.

      We know we want to see Ephesus either the afternoon we arrive or the next morning. (How much better is it to start early to—in theory—avoid the crowds?) That means one or two nights in Selcuk or nearby.

      Then we want to base ourselves in one town. And my main question is what are the benefits from being based in Bodorum, Marmaris, or Fethiye (to make getting on the ferry easy) or perhaps a smaller town?

      I don’t think we’ll have a car for the whole time. We’re happy to take the buses and minibuses when it works. But we might rent one (or hire a driver) for a day or two.

      Our ideal trip would mix seeing some more ancient sites, a bit of nice countryside/geography, and a museum or two. We like to explore interesting towns that are not totally overrun by cruise passengers and package tourists. We may spend a bit of time at the beach, but we’ve got a lot of beach time in Rhodes.

      As for antiquities, how would you rank the relative interest of Pergamum, Aphrodisias, Priene, Miletus, Didyma, Xanthos, and whatever I’m missing in this general area?

      Thanks for your advice

    • Is it too hot to vacation in Istanbul late August?

      Istanbul Jul 30, 2015 at 8:18 PM

      Hi, my boyfriend and I are from NYC and looking to vacation in Istanbul around the end of August. Some friends of ours say August is unbearable around this time of the year. Is it really that hot, or is it the humidity? Or both? Another important question, I am a slender tall female, (not very curvaceous) that likes to wear shorts or even skirts above the knee with tank tops exposing the arms when it's warm. I would describe my style as basic but elegant. Would this look still be distasteful or make locals feel uncomfortable? I am not at all familiar with their customs and don't want to be viewed as ignorant.
      Thanks so much! Any other tips about customs would be greatly appreciated as well!

      My partner and I are traveling to Antalya in October. As part of our 3 1/2 day trip, Pamukkale is a must for us to see. We will most likely be renting a car for other areas (Fethiye, Kas, etc)...but the question is WHAT is the best way to see Pamukkale? Current tour operators are quoting over 100 euros per person. The bus is cheaper, but maybe slightly more difficult to get to? And 7 hour driving...well - not my first choice, to be honest.

      For those who have visited Pamukkale and Hierapolis, how long does it truly take to appreciate it all? If you had to tour/bus/drive, what would it be? Decisions, decisions....

      Hi,

      I'm trying to find the faster and easier way to go from Istambul to Pamukkale.
      I found 2 options for the 16 or 17 August:
      - either by buss from Esenter terminal - Istambul
      - either we take a plane to Antalya (pegasus and onur air don't have flight to DENİZLİ lately) and from Antalya hopefully we can find a bus, but I don't know from where and how much can cost.
      Does anybody knows a better way to go to Pamukkale, or does anybody knows how much is the buss from Antalya to Pamukkake, if is a direct bus and where we can find it?

      Another option would be to go one day trip from Antalya to Pamukkale, but not sure approximately how much can it cost and if you can still enjoy Pamukkake considering that the trip will be about 4 hours one way. Anybody tried this trip and can advice if is worth?

      Thanks a lot, any advice is highly appreciated :)

      I have 2 days spare time in Selcuk and want to see Pamukkale before going to Bodrum. What is the best way to visit Pamukkale (by bus or hiring the car) ? Thanks

      Hello,
      I would like to travel from Bodrum to Pamukkale on the morning of 6 October and then travel to Selcuk in the evening where I plan to stay the night. I would like to see Ephesus and then travel to Eceabat on 7 Oct. I would appreciate any information on bus timetables and travel times.
      Thanks
      Nanda
