What To Expect
First up, we'll pick you up from your hotel and drop you off in the center of the action, giving you around two hours to roam around on your own. Get ready to splash your cash as you wander round the rows of shaded stalls. You'll pass tables laden with tempting local fruit and vegetables and all kinds of foodstuffs. You'll see stalls piled high with soft-knit pashminas, jeweled slippers and hand-woven rugs. And rack after rack of soft leather bags, brightly painted pots and gleaming brass ornaments.
You name it, you'll probably find it here. Just make sure you haggle to get the best deals. The stallholders will take euros, UK Sterling and Turkish Lira. And whatever you do, don't leave without buying a box of sugar-dusted Turkish Delight. These sticky sweets are an exotic taste of Turkey and a great take-home treat.
Turgutreis itself is a pretty seaside town, named after Turgut Reis (known in the West as Dragut), a Turkish admiral who was born here in 1485. You will also enjoy its 5 kilometers of sandy beaches and many waterfront restaurants and bars.
