Culture
The unique culture of Turkey is one of its biggest attractions. If you want to immerse yourself in the local culture, consider hitting the lively fish markets of Fethiye or enjoying time in the unspoilt little fishing village of Kas. For a historical angle on Turkish culture, highlights include the Telmessos, an ancient city, and the world heritage sites of Xanthos and Letoon.

Nightlife
Turkey is home to some truly wonderful and extremely varied nightlife. Key hotspots are Kalkan, a charming fishing town that conceals a lively after-dark party and clubbing scene, and Gocek, with a variety of bars to suit every taste on offer in the area surrounding the main square. The bustling town of Fethiye is also a good spot when darkness falls and the clubs and bars start to come alive.

Dining
Cuisine is another of Turkey’s highlights. In particular, make sure you enjoy a meal in one of the many traditional tavernas you will encounter over the course of your holiday. Enjoy some high-quality coffee, or some fine drinks in a sophisticated bar in the evening. And when you are visiting the vibrant fish market of Fethiye, make sure you buy something that you can eat then and there.
