Greetings Turkey travel advisors.
My wife and I have settled on a rough plan for our October travel and 23 days in Turkey, with the main regions of interest to us being:
2. Lycian coast
3. Selcuk – Pamukkle
5. Gulet trip
6. And of course Istanbul.
We are independent travellers and where possible prefer to spend as much time mingling with the locals in smaller villages rather than being subjected to crowds in the major centres.
Our thoughts are that we’ll probably finish our turkey trip with 4-5 days in Istanbul. Somewhere along the way we’ll have 3-4 days in Cappadocia and maybe up to 6 days on the Lycian coast.
1. Any tips on gulet options?
2. Clockwise / anti-clockwise, any advise on which route and sequence for our travels?
3. Lycian coast-(thinking Cirali or Adrasan or Kas) should we base ourselves in one town, or shift every few days?
4. Any advice greatly appreciated.
I’ve enjoyed reading posts from canmom, enigma, busy-retired and many others and hope you may be able to help us get the most out of our itinerary.
