Sinan, you are probably one of the most gracious posters on this site and continually offer great information. Wish I could go while you're there. However, my one and only trip to Turkey was in July and it was way too hot for me! I do hope to have the chance to visit again. Have a wonderful trip.

Sinan -
Been reading about the Turkish coast - Antalya looks beautiful - the waterfall, the ruins. What's Kudasi like? Have a great time (vacation?)

Hello Sinan,

Thanks for your kind invitation to all of us! My husband and I will be in Turkey at the end of August/beginning of September, but will not be in Kusadasi -- we will be in Istanbul, Cappadocia and then Kalkan.

Have a great time on your trip. We can't wait to visit your country and look forward to experiencing the warmth and hospitality offered by the Turkish people.

Cheers,

Thank you for everybodies me have a nice vacation in Kusadasi. Everyear I am going back to Kusadasi July and september you all welcome to my house.

HI BANU,
I really don't need any MEDAL from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, I just want to see alots of tourist going to Turkey and get history and archaelogy of the world with different cultures to get medal for me is to get some nice e-mail from tourists I help(ed) this is make me really happy. Writting on this forum makes me happy because there are many peoples in different countries.

Hi marktynernyc

I will post some pictures and some information of Kusadasi when I get there, BUT I have to say that Kusadasi is not hot like Antalya and you can get really nice breeze. Be side of some Archaelogical digging there are many small town to visit like SIRINCE.

CHEERS

Hi everybody,

I am in KUSADASI. I came here yesterday 6.PM. If you are coming to this area PLEASE BECAREFULL Kusadasi is TOO HOT. My house top on the hill so I may get some breeze but inside of the city is burning. Today I saw temprature in my car and it was 38 C (110 F)I wish I could saw you some pictures about Kusadasi but I am using DIAL UP connection here so speed I am using very slow. If I can upload this message to you I WILL BE LUCKY. If I can put some pictures in my server I will write you and give you some informations about KUSADASI which means BIRD ISLAND although DOVE ISLAND
because we have here many DOVE rather then BIRDS (yes we have birds too).
I will continue again.

Have a nice day to ALL OF YOU FROM KUSADASI

Hi,

Today we (me my wife and our guests)went to SIRINCE where you can see beatiful town. I want everybody visit this small town when you get Kusadasi or Selcuk where ephesus museum and ruins are. When you get Sirince first you see beatiful houses then see many winery or wine sellers. You may think that Turkish people don't dring alcohol because we are muslim. First I have to say that THIS IS NOT TRUE, Sirince is the sample of this and second our national alcohol is RAKI (when you come to Turkey try RAKI or LIONS MILK) which is made of anason. This small town is remarkable beatiful and there are some pansiyons and their price are very cheap one of them (I like) is Sirince Pansiyon they are clean and reasonable price. They told me 60 million ($ 40) room price for 2 people Included breakfast. There are 2 hotels and their price very higher then this. Whether believe or not There were 2 churchs and 40 monastries in this town only a few left because many christians left town after Indipendence war (1915-1920. When you go you can see the mixture of Greece and Turkish arts and architectures in town. We 4 people had some snacks one of the restaurant which have nice wiev of town and I paid $ 11 for 4 GOZLEME kind of pastry, 1 stuffed grape leaf which was very delicious and Ayran (Yougurt mixed with water) for 4 people
You can not get this food for this price anywhere in the world.
I think their web page is:

http://www.sirinceguide.com/default.asp?cat=main

Just check and I am sure you will love this town.

Have a nice day from KUSADASI

Hi,

In 2 days I was really busy. First day We went to Izmir which is almost 3 million population (only an hour drive from here). We visited the Covered Bazaar of Izmir then Roman Bath which is dated to 3rd century. Then went to Chine Restaurant in Karsiyaka. Yes Turkish restaurant or foods better then Chine foods BUT some time I prefer different taste The price of the restaurant very reasonable I paid $30 for 4 people's food.
Second day we went to BULDAN the town very close to PAMUKKALE. Buldan is the Textile center of that area although the area is the center of COTTON the price of Textile very very cheap. If you are going to Pamukkale or from Pamukkale to Izmir direction I recommed you drive this town and visit I am sure you will find some things you need and buy. We bought many hand made things like table cloth ($ 5), Bed Sheet Hand made ($ 20). Chair cover hand made ($ 2 for 2 pieces), Pillow case ($ 2 for 2 pieces).

Then yesterday we went to AUQA FANTASY again to rest. Then we eat PIZZA in Town if you are coming to Kusadasi go to GONDOL RESTAURANT and order one of the pizza they cook. You can not find this pizza in Italy. They are soo delicious. BONEPETIT.

I hope you all have nice days like I have in here.
