Trip Report April 2012: Turkey with my mother and sister - 7 days in Istanbul, Oludeniz and Kas

Jump to last reply

It started with the idea of going to Greece for a week. After reading guide books cover to cover, deciding where I wanted to go, and reading forums, I realised that April just was not the time to visit, the inter-island ferries were just not up and running yet. and it was too expensive. Ah well. Another day.

I live in London, and my Mom (late forties) and sister (17) were visiting. After visiting Scotland (another trip report), we wanted to visit a beach, somewhere pretty, and preferably without visa requirements (we're Indian). Turkey was the answer. I booked tickets to and from Istanbul for 1 week in April, and the planning began!

Highlights: Topkapi Palace, Aya Sofiya, Gelato on Isteklal Cadesi, the view from hills in Oludeniz, learning how to dive in the cleanest waters in the mediterranean in Kas :)

Tips: The buses in Turkey are better than planes :) people are very nice, but then no country is free of idiots who ruin that impression
