Hello Kind People,
Will you be able to help me chalk up some sort of an itinerary for my much anticipated trip to Turkey this summer? We, my husband and I who are in our mid-30's, plan on taking the trip sometime in June. We are nature/wild-life enthusiasts and after scrounging through the forums I think I wish to visit these places - Istanbul (3 days?), Fethiye (3 days), Cirali and the nearby areas (3 days), Kas (2 days), Greek island Meis (2 days). I don't know if the number of days are sufficient in each place and in what order I should be visiting them. Transportation is another question? How do we go about travelling from one place to the other? Drive? We are open to driving but don't want to be driving all the time and are open to flying as well though we'd love to travel by trains as well.We like to travel in leisure and at a relaxed pace.
We'd love to go to the off-the-beaten path kinda places and soak in the atmosphere, culture, and of course meet with the lovely people. Do you guys have other suggestions for places to visit?
We are lacto-vegetarians - will finding veggie food be an issue at any of the places. I read that veggie food is readily available all throughout Turkey but I don't mind the reassurance.
Regarding the cost, I read that $50 per person per day is reasonable for meals and $25 pppd for transportation/fees/souveniers - so $150 pppd for two people sounds reasonable/ extravagant/too little?
I am already enjoying the planning process and am hoping you'd help me with the same.
