Dalamanâ€“ A travel article about Turkey
There are some travellers who flee to foreign shores in the hope of finding delicious new cuisines and mouth-watering local wines. There are others who flock to metropolitan culture hubs in search of fine art, great theatre and the buzz of city living. Then there are those who prefer a country retreat, somewhere quiet and peaceful to really get away from it all. There are travellers who want fabulous nightlife and a flourishing live music scene. And there are sun-seekers who simply require a good stretch of sand, a towel, a parasol and a good summer read.
And then there are the most exacting and demanding travellers of all. Those who want it all. And not over the course of a six week travelling trip but over a week-long package deal. Finding a destination that can deliver sun, scenery, great food, great wine, culture and clubbing all in one place can prove something of a challenge. A challenge that Dalman in Turkey rises to with a flourish.
To the west of Dalaman you will find well known seaside resorts, such as Marmaris and Fethiye. These are ideal locations in which to unwind and let your hair down. Accommodation is affordable, the sunshine is glorious, the surf is delicious and the nightlife vibrant. Whilst in the area, for those in search of an Adrenaline kick, Oludniz beach is the place to be. With world famous paragliding facilities to hand, you are sure to get a view of Turkey's stunning coastline that you won't forget in a hurry. But if after a few days of living it up you are ready for a nearby change of scene you could always head south to Kas.
Kas is an excellent base from which to explore some of the ancient Lycian cities and their important historical sites. From Kas you can also embark upon a range of exhilarating mountain walks allowing you to explore another side of Turkey's magnificent terrain. And the town itself is a quiet, slow-paced place with plenty of charming guesthouses along the coastline helping you to find a more relaxing corner of Turkey's north west.
