    What are THOSE things?

    by Arial_27 Written Nov 1, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: These are caterpillar cacoons :)
    They use them to make silk. I'm not sure how they get ahold of so many, but once they do they are placed into boiling hot water and the stringy stuff they are made with is spun off with a machine and used to make silk, in order to make carpets.
    It was pretty interesting, but you know me.... I'm an animal-lover, so I just felt bad for those poor caterpillars...

    Ladies Beach

    by Aggeliki Updated Oct 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: "Ladies Beach" is the most popular beach in Kusadasi. No motor vehicles are allowed to get in to Ladies beach area. Changing rooms, umbrellas, sun beds, and toilets are available in the beach .There are also many restaurants and cafes around the beach.
    Ladies beach is 5 km from town center and takes about 25 min by walking. But you can take also the small bus dolmus from the center of town.

    The center of Kusadasi

    by Aggeliki Written Oct 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Kusadasi is a very popular resort. Many turkish people have their summer houses there. It is also very crowded with tourists, yachts and big ships.
    The center of Kusadasi has many places where you can shop, where you can have your meal and enjoy nightlife. The city is not very big so all places are easy to be reached.

    Kaleici, the old part of Kusadasi

    street in Kaleici

    Favorite thing: "Kaleici" meand "inner castle" in Turkish. Kaleici is the oldest part of the town. It is a historical area, with old houses in which many restaurants, shops and some night clubs are situated. You can find also some turkish baths (hammam) in this area. In the local shops you can buy souvenirs and other products with not a very good quality, but with very low prices.

    Shopping street

    Favorite thing: Since many cruise liners are visiting the port of Kusadasi.. the town has become a heaven for shoppers.. Many tourist shops are allowing tourists to buy Leathers, Carpets, Jewelleries and Carpets as well..

    The view is from one of the main streets.. The street is for Pedestrians only with many shops on both sides..

    a carriage...

    by Aggeliki Updated Sep 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This must be old, but I think sometimes they use this for carrying. I saw this kind of carrying in many cities in Turkey, even in the big cities. They use this for carrying water, and generally heavy things.

    The Pigeon Island

    by Aggeliki Written Sep 7, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Pigeon Island is the symbol of Kusadasi. As the island was much-frequented place of birds during the seasonal migrations, it was named as Bird Island.
    In the times of Ottomans, the name of the island was given to the town and the town was started to be called as "Kusadasi" (Bird Island). Since then, the name of the island was changed into "Pigeon Island". The island was used for military purposes during the Ottoman Era and before, as the location of the island was strategic for securing the shores or preventing the attacks from the sea. The Byzantine castle standing on the rocks, used against pirates, is known as "Pirate Castle".
    Pigeon Island , unlike its name, is now connected to the land by a mole.

    Hun? A German menu card ?

    by Leipzig Written Jan 31, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: During our stay we could pay (almost) everything in Deutsch Mark. It is useful to have some Euros/US-Dollars with you. As Turkey is suffering from high inflation the shop owners prefer stabil currencies.

    Go visit Ephesus

    by extrajoce Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: Once you've relaxed and enjoyed the seaside of Turkey's western coast, make sure you visit Ephesus, as it is a very interesting day visit and a welcome change from doing what you can do in just any other resort town.
    See my Ephesus page for more info.

    Sun and sailing.

    by Monique_T Written Sep 17, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: What I really enjoyed was going on a boat and just relax in the sun. It is very popular to do that when you are a tourist in Kusadasi. It is not that expensive and you are out all day long. They have a bbq on board so that is nice. They make a stop somewhere and you can go for a swim or whatever you want. But be sure to use sunlotion as you get burned easily on a boat.

    Fondest memory: What I miss the most..guess that is the good weather. Always sun and it is nice to get a tan.

    Kusadasi Bazaar

    by seagoingJLW Written Sep 19, 2002

    Wares on Disply in the Bazaar

    Favorite thing: Kusadasi also has its own covered bazaar. But beware. The merchants will take your credit card to a money changer rather than charge an item directly. You will then discover an extra fee on your credit card bill for money conversion. Don't let them do it.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: There's wide pedestrian walkway to stroll along the promenade and see the cruise ships come in. The fortress pictured here plays host to some excellent Turkish nights - belly dancers and folk dancers.

    Ladies beach

    Fondest memory: There is no real beach in the centre but just outside the town is the ever popular Ladies beach where some serious body bronzing can be done. Easily reached by local dolmus.
