Fethiye Market – Ghost Town Tour
Tuesdays in Fethiye are great fun! The biggest open-air market of the region held in town every Tuesday attracts buyers and sellers from everywhere. Let’s join this activity… With the clues given by your Get Up & Go Tours guide, who is an expert in the haggle-and-barter game, bargain hunters will get the best value for their money. Holiday shopping cannot be any greater fun. Textiles, souvenirs, fresh produce, leather-ware, silver, spices, trinkets etc. are displayed on thousands of stalls. You’ll come back to your hotel heavily laden with shopping bags.
And more shopping at two more points… As children of a nomadic nation, gold industry in Turkey is not only an economical asset but also a matter of pride and tradition as well since gold has always been the soundest way of investment to a Turk. At the biggest gold center in Fethiye you’ll be amazed with the artistic quality of workmanship and the prices of the masterpieces of jewellery.
Then comes a time to visit the best Turkish Delight factory in town. You’ll get a chance to see the production process under most hygienic conditions, and to taste samples from their assortment.
Ghost Town Tour
After all this shopping buzzle is over we drive to Kaya Village aka Ghost Town which was abandoned by her original settlers during the very sad Greco-Turkish repatriation. With the fall of Otoman Empire, in accordance with the terms of an agreement between the Greek and Turkish goverments, Turks in Greece and the Greek population in Turkey had to trade places. Such an emotional (some call it eerie) atmosphere and such an inspiring experience. You’ll want to learn more.
