Am flying in to Dalaman on the 21st March. Have not been before, but want to go property hunting in and around the area (within one hours distance). Need to stay somewhere fairly central, but have not booked anywhere yet? Any suggestions please? Looking for an apartotel or apartment near restaurants, for my daughter and myself. All suggestions gratefully received?
Also, one more thing. What are the driving conditons like as I will probably need to hire a car, but is it as scary driving in Turkey as some make out?
I've driven in that part of Turkey many times - there are no significant problems - taking a car into one of the big cities might be a different matter, but that's what driving in any big city is like.
The biggest worry for most drivers in the tourist areas seems to be police speed checks that impose on-the-spot fines - and that means taking cash out of your pocket and handing it over to the nice officer before he'll let you drive off. Hmmmm.
Turks are not the best drivers but no worse than the French or Italiens, Orange rent a car in fethiye is a good company.
Good luck with your search.
I have been offered appartments in Calis, but their restaurant/bar isn't open until April.
If anyone knows any hotel in Dalaman or Dalyan that ARE open, please let me know, otherwise I will be sleeping at the airport for the week..........
