Favorite thing: Wherever I travelled in Turkey I saw beautiful mountains. I saw trips advertised up to the mountains in cable cars.
I loved that I was in the sun and the highest mountains were snow-capped.
- Budget Travel
Favorite thing: Hi ,
Hotel staffs can help you to find a travel agency. Car rental prices vary depending on models but average prices are between €25 and €35. I think that it can be more expensive with a travel agency.However I can ask price to any agency in Antalya if you want. Perge is about 20kms ,Aspendos 35-40kms and Termessos 35 kms from Antalya. These three sites are absolutely must be seen in the region.
have a nice holiday
Favorite thing: As we got off the tram to go to the antique market, there was this lovely statue of lady liberty I think that someone must have built the previous day. It looked very real, the only thing that gave it away was the pile of sand lying next to it.
Favorite thing: Dear Christine,
L have been working in Antalya,
Free holiday is included each day different shopping tours which are jewellery,carpet shops,textile shops etc.
The travel agency gets money from the shopping centers(per tourist) .Agency take you to the shops and you spend money(you dont have to but you see nice things so you buy:) )
Hopefully l explained the stiation
No fear just enjoy it!!
Favorite thing: Hi there,
don't think,just do it:o)
first;As far as know(which I used to live in Antalya) that there is/are no any special event/events or local traditions during the Ramazan(Ramadan),but some of the 5 stars hotels have traditional Iftar meal dinners..In addition, Antalya Metropolitan Municipality coordinates an alternative shopping places inside of Karaalioglu park( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karaalioglu_Park )
Ramadan never and ever affect to the city of Antalya.
second:The best place to stay in Antalya??? sure that Kaleici(Old city-citadel),,narrow streets,great sample of Ottoman houses,car free streets,old harbour,old mosques or hammams and easy to reach to Antalya's beaches,tram,restaurants,cafes,discos,museum,shopping center and malls,etc.
Pudingsuite!! I know this very nice place but it's pretty expensive,there are a lot of cheap but fancy boutique hotels or pansions in Kaleici..
pls follow the links for Kaleici hotels and passions..
third;Saklikent..The season opens at the end of december(sure that depens to snowfall),but u can visit during the all year but there is no cable car to reach to Saklikent ski resort.
I suggest to see Tahtali Mountain(2365 meters)..pls see my off the beaten path
It has an amazing cable car and a breathtaking view of Antalya.
last response:) yes,renting a car is certainly good thought,I'm sure that you'll find very reasonable renting prices.
Every places in Antalya are reachable by car..even waterfalls..
Have a nice days in Antalya..
Kaleici map&Hotel Links
Favorite thing: I know every parts of Kaleici(Oldcity),but I know also that narrow streets of Kaleici could be little difficult for new beginners.
Please find below Kaleici map and whole hotels&pansions links in the Old Citadel..
This map will help you to find out restaurants,taxis,toilets,autoparks,ATM points,mosques,and the Consulate of Russian Federation.

Take a Christmas Day swim at Lara Beach
Our hotel overlooked the cliffs with the beach and sea below.
When the weather is clear, a really fantastic view of the mountains
in the distance.The water has been heating up all year so not so cold for
There is always a belly dance show put on at most hotels..
Don't miss it.
Lada my Russian girlfriend swimming naked early afternoon
in Lara bay and after about 20 mins, all the resteraunt workers
were sitting on the cliff watching her swimming about like a porpoise.
They sat smiling and dangling their legs, until the bosses came out to see why
the staff had abandoned their posts. Well thank God it wasn't in Saudi Arabia,
or at Brighton Beach NY or Cox'x Bazzar in Bangladexh.
Still Lada loved sensations and a bit of scandal to keep things from becoming
Upper Dadon Falls - small falls
Favorite thing: The Dadon Falls is a very beautifullly laid out park, the paths take you wandering in between rushing streams, alongside small brooks and even under the water. Here you can see one of the observation points set up to give you a good view of the water system, and you can see some of the paths in the upper left background.

Upper Dadon Falls - the "careful" path
Favorite thing: This was one of the paths in the Dadon Falls park, we called it the "careful path", if you were watching the scenery or eating ice cream you were likely to find yourself at the bottom instead of ON the stones...not a real good choice for a path material, interesting yes, good, no !!

Old City Gate
Fondest memory: The entrance to the old city. On one side you'll find the main street with all the stores in it, but once you step to the other side of the wall you will find yourself in another world, wandering in the narrow alleys of the old city.
Favorite thing: This small waterfall is coming down the cliff just beside the harbour and many of the tour boats take an extra turn so the tourists can watch it. This small waterfall is a nice sight, but it is artificial.
If you want to see more magnificent waterfalls there are several outside Antalya: Duden waterfalls are about 10 km to the north, Kunsunlu waterfalls about 20 km to the east and Manvagat close to Side.
Favorite thing: To sit by the sea at sunset is lovely! In Antalya there is a nice view from Karaalioglu Parki and from the pier in the harbour. It is very peaceful to sit on the pier and watch the last boats come in and the change of colour on the sky, and maybe with some nuts to eat.
A great place to pass the time
Favorite thing: The cultural and conference centre is a wonderful place to wander in. Even when there are no events, the whole venue is interesting.
The main conference hall is a large blue glass pyramid.
There are two smaller pyramids in the grounds, and the use of water is inspired. Water trickles down a pyramid, down channels and into a lake . There is even a waterfall which you can walk under.
In the heat of the day the water gives a sense of refreshment.
There are also many different plants to see and paths to follow.
Fondest memory: My fondest memory was the evening we spent at a concert at Aspendos. Some of the dancers seemed to be gliding around as if on skates.
