Which resort?

Hi, We are planning on visiting turkey during the last week of the season in late October. I was wondering out of this short-list which would be best suited to us or you would recommend?

Kusadasi

Alanya

Bodrum

Fehiye/Oludeniz

Side

We are looking for a decent size resort with a good amount of shops/restaurants (similar to Marmaris which we have visited) and with possible trips/attractions nearby. Although we'd prefer to avoid somewhere that focuses on nightclubs etc.

Thanks in advance!

1. Re: Which resort?

Bodrum is good late in the season. It has quietened down so it doesn't have the party feel of mid summer but there are still plenty if shops bars and restaurants open.

The only thing is you da not guarantee the weather that time of year.
