    If you are thinking of going to Marmaris during the summer months, then take care from the extream heat, it can and probably will get up to 45 degrees which is hot, hot, hot, so keep yourself protected with a high factor sun block when you get there and gradually work your way down. There is a cooling breeze that gets up in the afternoons in Marmaris so you don't know that your burning untill its too late. Also drink plenty of water to avoid sun stroke.

    TAKE CARE OUT THERE

    by whitecliff62 Updated Jan 10, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Turkeys crime rate is very low compared with most countrys but even in turkey you will allways get thives and pickpockets. Be carefull especially at the markets. Our last visit to marmaris was spoilt because of a market con. Turkish lira is out of control and with one and a half million lira to the pound all them noughts are very confusing so getting cheated can be very easy. An example being that we paid ?50 pounds for 5 boxer shorts because the notes all look the same so its very easy to hand over the wrong bank note like i did. So i have got the most expensive bloody boxers ever made Ha Ha Ha i can laugh now but it's not nice bieng con'd.

    papagallos and hookers

    This isn’t dangerous—with so many people around at all hours—but one time when Ý sat down at the public beach ýn the city center at night, near the overpriced icecream stand, thinking deep things about life and the world, this young man sat down a few chairs further on, then getting on the one next to me and interrupted me by asking me something that Ý am sure was x-rated. The man turned out to be a kid of no more than 20. Ý asked some people on other chairs to help me and they chased him away. Now because of his young age and the aging rich plastic-surgerated Americans Ý had seen in a bank with their habibis Ý thought he had offered himself to me for money...not very flattering! But all was well, later people explained to me that this was a place where prostitutes meet their customers, so Ý my honor was somewhat reinstated...well better than the first insult ya know...

    However nobody in Marmaris bothered me by asking if Ý’m Russian wink wink , which is a gain, but then Ý appear to be the most covered up person here anyhow--girls go to the bank and Bazaar in Bikinis.

    No offense intended to anyone from that country, but here it means something else.

    when on your way to the airport after staying in marmaris,you are better of buying crisps,pop,sandwich etc when you have your rest break on the coach as when we got to dalaman airport,our kids bought a medium sized bag of crisps at 2.40,english money.a meal at burger king cost 16 pounds each.it cost me 100 pounds for 6 of us to eat and drink.they certainly make there money.

    Turkish bath

    the roundabout

    Don't book your trip to a Turkish bad at the excursion-book-shop near the roundabout in the centre of Marmaris.

    It's a waste of time. We spent there about 3/4 hours and all we got was a washing of 10 minutes and a massage (10 minutes) for which we had to wait 1,5 hour. HORRIBLE

    The pictures shows the roundabout.

    The beach in Marmaris…

    by SwedishViking Written Jan 30, 2005

    Boat outside Marmaris...

    The beach in Marmaris is not a beach of golden soft sand; it’s full with sharp and hard little stones.
    Bring a pair of sandals or flip flops because it’s not comfortable walk on the beach without them…

    There are nicer beaches outside Marmaris.
    Or go on a tour by boat and swim from the boat...

    You have to be a bit careful with the food in Turkey.
    A waiter told us that it is against their religion to throw away food.
    I am afraid they heat the food several times and use the salates more times.
    I am sorry to say that a lot of people where sick for one or two days.

    Don`t buy a trip ticket to Dalyan from the people sell them everywhere in the city.
    The guides are not so good and very strange. They promised a lot before the trip until they sold it but the trip was not so as they described.

    Got Milk?

    A Goat

    When buying or ordering milk from a restaurant, dont be too worried when it doesnt taste "right". I didnt know that when i ordered a glass of milk, that it was Goats' milk and not Cow's milk, which i am used to. When i took a sip of the Goat's Milk, i was almost sick.
