Oui super! ha ha

I wouldn't mind turkey in my living room or dining room even ha ha. Marmaris is great place to drink along with everything else and can definitely not be compared to a few cans at home!!!

went to mamaris a few years ago now ,what a lovely place



mmmmmm.......I am not sure I would agree.......

It appeared full of English style takeaways with names like "The Greasy Spoon" and "Lancashire Hot Spot" along with tacky souvenir shops and raucous bars.

Maybe I am strange - but I go to Turkia to experience the Turkish way of life and culture......not to be presented with a bad version of the life I live at home with the only notable difference being the nice weather!

Apart from the Bizarre, the only thing I can see Marmaris has going for it is cheap beer - and of course the opportunity to meet up with people

Ohh I'd never ever set foot in a place called 'The Greasy Spoon' !!

But which is maybe worse..




NEW: Resort with 500 luxurious rooms, Amsterdamse canals, Central station of Amsterdam, Red Light District, The Bulldog, Filmmuseum, a windmill, houses of Volendam, kroketten; Holland / The Netherlands under the Turkish sun!

While we had a hire car we drove out to two towns that were much less tourist orientated than Marmaris......Datça and Köyceğiz. Getting to them took an age due to the distance but they were both much nicer and more traditionally Turkish than Marmaris!

I really liked Köyceğiz and want to try and get back there.

Last time we visited it was during Ramadan so not very much was going on during the day. Plus I spoke zero Türkçe This time I am hoping to sit outside a few bars with Türkler and enjoy their way of life as much as I can

Ooooohh Is it in Türkiye?? It's really a very stupid thing to pass your holiday there and then call it a Holiday in Turkey.
But really, it touched me. Those cute houses, those Holland view, it reminds me of my days . A small Holland in Türkiye, stupid, but cute

Hehe.. I think it's rather sick that Turkish governments gives green light to such projects They really should forbid it. But I think that something like Miniturk? What was it again? would be a better sollution for it

I know it's a Dutch view, but.. come to my city.. there you can find out how general Dutch life is. Amsterdam gives a good view of what is possible in Holland and what a crazy country it sometimes is But it doesn't show how the life in the rest of the country in general is. But I bet you knew

Im here to add my t'pence worth again!

Bod I totally agree with what you said about Marmaris and i have to admit that i sometimes feel like im living in miniture England. All they have done is cater for the needs of English people with the wide screen tvs showing football, greasy spoon takeaways and 'Eastender' english bars - whats that all about? personaly i want to see more of the turkish culture here but i think that it will be impossible to ever get that back again - Marmaris has changed for the worst and it wont be on my list of places to settle down. Koycegiz is lovely my husbands father has a villa there and its so beautiful, he grows all his own vegetables and it is just the place to go to get a taste of the 'real Turkey' As much as i have had my fair share of bad times in Istanbul,i still love the place and it has a certain characteristic that Marmaris and all these other tourist resorts will never have..that is - A Culture
