It was the last day of our family vacations and wanted something relaxing, something to spend our day without getting tired. The market tour was excellent. They took us the local market and it was nice to see that locals produce a great variety of things. Then we went to an abandoned village and got impressed by the settlement. I had no idea there are abandoned villages and it appears that it was an interesting history behind. As a family we had a great day and very nice memories from that day.
One thing I really like in Turkey is markets!! You can find literally everything there, and when I found out there is one in the area, I booked immediately. Customer service super, the transfers were nice, and the whole experience was properly organised. Bravo! The market in Fethiye was very interesting. I purchased some clothes and few souvenirs. It had a cool atmosphere, lots of foreigners mixing with the locals. I recommend visiting the market, it’s an interesting place to understand many things about the town and the locals.
