Turkey First Timers


I've never been to Turkey before and I was wondering if anyone has any feedback on the Arcadia Golf Resort in Belek as my husband and myself are going in 2 weeks with our 14 year old daughter.

I wasn't too sure about what currency to take with us, but I think that we are going to take Sterling. Anyone got any tips or advice about the currency?

I'm hoping to grab myself some ''designer'' bargains whilst there too? Do you get these at markets, or do shops sell them too?

Really looking forward to my first Turkish holiday!!!!

Markets and shops sell the fake's some better quality than others, you will be fine with sterling and some turkish lira.

If I were you I would spend my time and money in OLD Antalya where you can get really good price of course if you know how to bargain.

Have a nice trip in Turkey

Antalya is around 20-25 minutes car ride from Belek, you can get the 'designer' clothes from any shop in Belek or Kadriye(cheaper in Kadriye) I used to take Euro's but had a problem paying for high value gods so now I just have Lira and my bank card.

They have a market in Belek on Saturday morning,I think its on a thurs in Kadriye and also tue night.
