Sile and baklava
Favorite thing: As Sile is more off the beaten path place, naturally here the prices of baklavas or other sweets are less expensive than in Istanbul center. Let say, one kilogram of baklava here we got for 8,10 euros, but in Istanbul it was 11 euros and more. So we used such opportunity and tried different species of so sweet Turkish baklavas. It is, I should tell, the main sweet thing in Turkey, sometimes also produced and sold in other countries as well.
So, after eating lot of pieces of milk, Greek nut, pistachio, caramel and other components baklava I easily associate Sile with this sweet.
Great coast place
Favorite thing: Sile is not a basic resort just with sandy beaches, but also has a great looking coast with nice rocks around. One rock is a place for Byzantine time castle ruins.
Also Sile has nice pier to walk a deeper into sea, also with a fish market and few restaurants.
