VISIT THE LOCAL BAZAAR
Turkish bazaars provide locals and tourists alike with wonderful opportunities to stock up on fresh goods while interacting with one another at these age old meeting places that are popular in one form or another throughout much of the world.
Especially if you are visiting Turkey for the first time, experiencing their version of the people’s marketplace, known as ‘pazar’ in Turkish and literally meaning ‘Sunday’, is a great introduction to Turkish life and social interactions.
VISIT THE GHOST TOWN
Kayaköy, anciently known as Lebessos is a village 8 km south of Fethiye. Anatolian Greeks lived there until approximately 1922. At the ending of the Greco-Turkish War (1919–1922), Kayaköy was already completely abandoned. Many of the abandoned buildings were damaged in the 1957 Fethiye earthquake.
Today Kayaköy village serves as a museum and is a historical monument. Around 500 houses remain as ruins and are under the protection of the Turkish government, including two Greek Orthodox Churches, which remain the most important sites of the ghost town. There is a private museum on the history of the town. In the middle of the village stands a fountain source from the 17th century. Kayaköy was adopted by the UNESCO as a World Friendship and Peace Village
