Jump to last reply

Hi,
I am currently drawing an itinerary for a 2 weeks and a half trip (june-july 2012) on the Turkish Aegean and Mediterranean coast. I would like to know if there are such towns that are unspoiled by tourism OR that have a nice student/backpackers vibe. They must be a good base to visit the surrounding ruins or natural attractions.

Here are a few details. Me and my friend will be backpacking on a budget mainly on the coasts, but also in Capadoccia. We will be travelling by public transportation. Here are the main places that we want to see:
- Troy
- Pergame
- Éphesus (Prieme, Miletus, Didyma, Miletus)
- Dilek National Park
- Afrodisias
- Konya
- Nermut Dragi
Here are the towns that interest us:
- Bursa
- Marmaris
- Alanya
- Antakya
- Konya
- Goreme (or Capadoccia in general)
- Ankara (is it worth it?)

I know I might look for something that is rather impossible to find, but I will gladly take any recommendation. Please feel free to tell your opinion about the places you've stayed at!
