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.
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 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...
People!!!!!!!!!! KEEP THE RECEIPT when you pay for the bills at the hotel!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, keep ALL THE RECEIPTS till the end of the stay at the hotel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
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.
Don't drink the night before a boat trip otherwise you might end up looking like my daughter hahahahaha.
Now this is a few miles up the coast and as you can see its a hell of a lot more peacfull
I think the late nights and the long hot days are taking its toll. I think this photo speeks for itself DON'T YOU hahahahaha.
i think i'm not discovering another America here, but do, please, take sun protection creams and everything connected with it. It was +40 in the shade!.....But we survived :-)))))))))))))
