I decided to write about the neighbourhood that spreads after the supermarket that is across the street from the bus station. One of the last days (it is always at the end that you discover romance, new love, a new wonderful location, a or fantastic, secluded beach, isn’t it? Oh well, Murphy’s law) we decided to walk through that neighbourhood, very cute, no tourist presence, just small buildings with apartments, and very family-like atmosphere.
Now the interesting part is that the INTERNET CAFES in that area, since obviously are not in a very commercial part, were three times cheaper than the ones in the centrally located streets full of visitors, just as fast and maybe even more comfortable. They are simply not on the way to the frequent destinations.
It is not far, at all... just not what you find on the maps. On the same street, which is Kubilay Caddesi, if I am not wrong, the street that starts at the Supermarket, there is a superb Pizza place with ridiculously low prices. We ate three pizzas, drank ayran and had two salads that are given by the pizza places even if you do not order them and paid 10 turkish lira. I mean... that is cheap. The pizza was the best.

Sirince is a lovely Greek village on a hill around 9km east of Selcuk. It's famous for its lovely huts and fruit wine.
From Selcuk, you can take a dolmus to get to Sirince. It will take you around 20 minutes and cost you 1.5 Million Turkish Lira.
Wanna know more about Sirince? Please see my travelogue.

Try to get an early start and walk around town right as the sun is rising. Feel the town come alive as the streets fill with people driving to work on their tractors. Just wander around and explore. You will discover things you would never expect to see, like these buildings built between the arches of an ancient aqueduct.

This was a great break from the ruins of Ephesus and a too-long bus ride from Adana!
Pricey, about 20.000.000 Lira for the day, but worth it. Get a Turkish person to buy a ticket for you, costs a bit less! They take all credit cards. It is a great water park, you can get there from Selcuk on the Dolmus. You can also get the dolmus to and from Kusadasi here as well. Bring your own food (like the Turks do) as it is pricey. Great swim up bar that is in the form of a huge pirate ship. A bit of Disney in Turkey!
