Hi triage999,Money....theres a lady called Glady's she owns a BAG shop she exchanges money for you,shes located at the top of the strip if you you are walking up from the beach she at the top on the left on the right if walking down towards the beach,she gives you a good rate very polite too,when i checked a few days ago the rate was 2.72 lira to the £,

theres plenty of web sites you can check on though as it can change at anytime,you could also view reviews about Belcehan Beach hotel on this site im sure the food will be mentioned,

my tip for you is try the 6 island boat trip use the small boats i found it a super day out,catch the sun swim in the cool sea,food was good too,well worth every penny,

theres lots to do and see,great food fantastic people,enjoy your Hols please let us know how it goes. :-))

As tescobabe says the bag shop for exchange.

What about a Turkish Bath? Have one on the first or second day, it is so relaxing and supposed to make you tan better.

Have a great time!

You may want to change your money at the PTT (post office) because that is the government rate and no one is making money off you. Just check it before you try anywhere else.

You should only change money at the recognised offices. The one next to Captain Hooks restaurant is as good as any. Don't change money in the shops, it's illegal, and you could end up with old lira in your change, which isn't valid currency.

First visit... walk down the strip towards the beach to watch the paragliders, cocktail in the Buzz beach bar, and then a meal at the Sultan Ahmet. Late night shopping on the strip, and watch the antics of the ice cream sellers.

Temperature was in the high 90s when we left yesterday. Have a lovely time.

Post Office still always has the best rate.
