Favorite thing: If you want to grab a quick snack there are always simit vendors available selling fresh simit and Turkish pide bread. Simit by the way is the Turkish version of the pretzel, who knows, what came first the simit or the pretzel?
Fondest memory: Great bread.

Favorite thing: There is no favorite thing about Alanya for me, i think Side,Kemer,Bodrum,Marmaris,Fethiye are much better places to go. There are 4 main reasons why i dont like Alanya.
- The weather is windy and warm which i dont like.
- Beaches are mixed with sand and stone and algeas. And seperated with rocks.
- Sea is blurry&wavy.
- If you stay outside Alanya centre, there is nothing to do and buy outside the hotel. You may only rely on the hotel's disco.
Fondest memory: Maybe nice sunset.
Climate and Nature
Favorite thing: In Alanya has Mediterranean climate. Winter months are mild and rainy and the summer months are very hot and dry. Through the mountains in the East, North and West the cold winds from the interior will be broken so it is possible to bath in the sea for over 8 month and to cultivate tropical fruits and cultivated plants.
Favorite thing: There is a exchange office in almost every corner in Alanya and they are open from morning to late in the evenings.
CAREFULL WHAT YOU DRINK
Favorite thing: Make sure you always drink bottled mineral water, the tap water in Alanya will give you the shi*s LOL
Favorite thing: If you get the chance to visit one of the local markets you won't be dissapointed, they are the perfect place to meet the locals and buy some really cheap goods.
- Family Travel
Favorite thing: In the east part of Alanya the "Party Street" is located, the nightlife is very intense!
The beautiful harbour is also located here.
The Cleopatra Beach
Fondest memory: Very fine and white sand! In the noon the sand is incredible hot; so wear shoes or just run into the water.
