boat tours in Kusadasi

Boat tours in Kusadasi

You'll probably end up on a boat trip while you're here. Daily trips proliferate, a great way to snorkel and swim in the more inaccessible bays. There are also ferry services (in the summer) to Greek islands such as Rhodes and Kos. The ultimate boat trip is, of course, the Mavi Yol or blue road. A week on board a motor boat can be a great experience but it's probably best enjoyed with a group of friends and organised in advance.

turkish bath

Turkish bath in Kusadasi

One of the truly unmissable experiences of a trip to Turkey is a visit to the "hamam". Traditionally, a whole range of paraphernalia is associated with the hamam. The pestamal, a colourful, checked cloth which is wrapped around the waist by men is still in use. Takunyalar, or wooden clogs, often inlaid or carved, have generally been replaced by plastic flip-flops. Soap, shampoo and other toiletries were carried in hand crafted copper or even gold plated tarak kutusu, literally comb boxes, and a copper tas was used to pour water over the bather.
