The cooking is not the best...
The cooking is not the best and they have, really, to take
care of this problem. I'm used to travel all around the world - I'm just coming from U.S. - but I'm obliged to say
that for this moment the best cooking is, for a tourist, in
Prices are special ! I remember taking a glass of beer in
a small bar in Belek, I have paid 900 M LT. Next day,
because the police was there, I have paid, only, 600 M LT
When Turkey will understand that a tourist is not a duke,
it will be certainly better. No answer !

Old Antalya and "Turkish night"
I was in Antalya only an evening. I saw new city only form the window of mini-bus which brought me to Old Antalya city to restaurant where I saw show of “Turkish night” with dance of belly. It was my dream to see the true Turkish night so I was excited when I was very close to enjoy the evening and dancing.
Before show I walked a little bit looking at sea bay and people, shops with souvenirs and Turkish national cloths. Streets of Old Antalya are narrow and I felt myself like I came to ancient times.
I was afraid of becoming Roksolana (Ukrainian girl who was stolen by Turkish khan and who was his first wife), because I realized that I wore too short shorts and very open T-shirt, so I escaped to restaurant quickly leading by interested eyes of Turkish men and eyes of Turkish women wearing national long and closed dresses with reproach for my negligence.
The Turkish night was fascinating and very interesting. I ate a lot, watched Turkish dances a lot and danced a lot also. See photos on travelogue.
