Favorite thing: There are three types of police in Turkey, first there are the jandarma who are the military police, then there is the traffic police who deal with any kind of road traffic offenses and the police who are in the tourist resorts who deal with the likes of me hahahahahahahaha.
The turkish currency is the Lira, and its very confusing and hard to master with all those bloody noughts on the end of there notes hahahahaha, still this is how it goes The coins are 25,000---- 50,000 ---- 100,000 ---- 250,000 and the notes are 250,000 ---- 500,000 ---- 1,000,000 ---- 5,000,000 ----10,000,000 ---- and 20,00,000 T.L.
One of the best ways of trying to get round this confusing money is to keep yor notes in order of value

After a long day... Sailing on the river, walking around the ruins, going in to mudbaths, swimming on the sea.. you will be tired..
But this is one of the nicest day you can have in Dalyan.. And noww its return time..
Got on your boats. Sail along the delta and return back home...
When you reach the iztuzu Beach by boat, now isthe swim time..
The beach has a perfect sand.. so soft so smooth.. its a great feeling to walk on this sand.. And you will understand why these turtles are choosing this beach for hundreds years..
No tent or sunbeds are allowed on the beach.. Just lay your towel and enjoy the sea.. its great tobe there
The final stop of the boat tour before return is the istuzu beach.. Where the caretta caretta turtles lay their eggs.. There you can have a break and get your tiredness off with a cold drink...
enjoy your life
Favorite thing: The town of Dalyan is situated near the river, some 22km from the resort of Marmaris - many tour boats come from here. It became a well established fishing village, life was simple here. Today on the wharf, which is in front of the mosque, there are a lot of excursion boats belonging to the fishing fraternity and tours can be made daily into the delta for the thermal spring mud baths, Caunos and of course the beach. Have a drink at one of the many pleasant waterside cafes first.
Rember the film classic African Queen - well this is it. Arriving at turtle beach through the reeds will conjure up images of this film. Its a really delightful way to reach the beach.
The Dalyan canal, formely known as Calbis, is a naturel water channel, connecting the Köycegiz lake with the mediterranean. Boats longer than 12m are not permitted and speed restrictions are in force to preserve this natural beauty.
Favorite thing: The Dalyan area, with its mountainous Mediterranean coastline, a peaceful river delta and the ancient city of Kaunos, is widely recognised as one of most beautiful areas in Turkey and I certainly think it is too.
After the caunos ruins, your boat will take you to the wonderful Dalyan delta..
You will pass from a door by your boat.. This door is to protect fishes passing over.. And now you are in the Delta.. While sailing you dont see much.. You only see those grasses on water and other boats.. As seen on picture..
After you get freshed in the Mudbaths now is the time to walk.. The boats will take you to the ruins of Caunos city.. You need to walk around 10-15 min. to reach the ruins.. Be careful for the sunburn..
The Caunos ruins are coming in to daylight more and more each year, however currently only 10% of the ruins are on the scene..
The boat will take you to Mudbaths which is runned by a private owner..
The 39C mudbaths and thermal waters are the main interest of the ladies, who wants to look more younger..
Have some mud on your body.. Wait till it gets dried and afterwards take a shower and then went to the pool with thermal hot water
After lunch, now is the time to go downward along the canal.. The second part of the tour is much more interesting.. so dont be confused with the first part..
the boat will pass in front of the rock tombs and leads to mudbaths..
Favorite thing: You can not see luxury buildings here.. The houses are limited with two floors.. There is only one main street and that stroll between the houses and river.. Just a small town but carries all the spirit of a comfortable vacation without being disturbed..
Dalyan is an ideal location for nature lovers.. The peaceful environment makes it a special charming place..
Dont expect to find the Luxury hotels in Dalyan.. There are no 5 or 4 star hotel in Dalyan.. Maximum allowed buildings are 2 flat buildings with less than 500m2 covered area..
Many Hotels and/or Pensions are family owned and managed ones with around 15-20 rooms..
The food, drink and shopping is probably the cheapest in the region..
