Things to do in Turkey

Here are some interesting excursions and tips that you can do if you are thinking of visiting Turkey.

1. A Turkish Bath with a massage is a must do when in Turkey. Prepare your skin for the sun, and treat yourself to a traditional Turkish bath. Set in exclusive surroundings, you will enjoy a sauna, foam massage and scrub. If you feel you want to be pampered further, Thai massage, oil massage and anti celluite massages are available as extras. Also available are relaxing facials and jacuzzi. Experience a Turkish bath as it can help towards a longer lasting tan if taken in the beginning of your holiday. It will, also, get rid of all the dead cells inside the skin, which will leave the skin feeling soft and supple again.

2. The Famous Mud Baths in Dalyan - A brilliant experience for anyone. Cake the mud all over your body and face when in Dalyan mud baths. Dalyan is a peaceful, relaxing and quaint! At the Mud Baths the first thing you will notice is the horrible gasey smell! Getting into these mud baths will make your skin feel great! After wards you let the mud dry on your skin. Then you get into a hot spring pool to clean the mud off. After, you can have a cold shower if you wish. I would suggest wearing clothes in the mud that are cheap and that you don't mind throwing out after wards! A memorable day out. Bring a camera too!

3. From Icmeler you can take a trip to Rhodes, the Greek island, which only takes an hour to get to. Enjoy a whole day in another country. Take the boat up to Marmaris, then another to Rhodes.

4. Jeep Safari - A jeep safari into the wilderness and the nearby villages can be a fascinating adventure. Untouched forests and bays along the way with regular swimming stops, experience the sights outside of Icmeler and Marmaris. This takes you around the countryside and mountains near Icmeler. See places you would not be able to get to by car. The trip takes tourists to places like Kizkuma Beach in Orhaniye Village where there is a legend about walking on water.


5. Experience a Turkish night with lots of traditional Turkish food and dancing. There are many around Icmeler and Marmaris that you can find or book one with your holiday representative, such as, Thomson Holidays.
