Antalya,Turkey Datasheet

To start off...This isn't a datasheet that's "game" related. Antalya isn't the place you go to pick up girls...it's a place you go to relax....That being said...Turkish women are some of the most beautiful girls I've seen so far.

Turkish people...when they aren't trying to sell you something overpriced...are also some of the nicest, friendliest people that I've ever met on my long journey.

Cost of life 

The cost of living here is relatively cheap. You can choose pay the tourist cost for everything. Or you can venture 15 minutes out of the old town and find things dirt cheap.
its about 1USD- .46TL . While in the country.. Just divide everything by half.. and that's roughly the cost that you will pay in dollars.
Some people will argue( Get it? :D )   But, almost everything in Antalya and many other Turkish cities is negotiable.  No one will offer you the actual price... they will always ask for more..sometimes twice the actual cost.
Once you understand this... and learn to haggle and negotiate..you can become golden.


Since I wasn't going to this city for the women. I went ahead and got a Hotel..
I friend and I booked a decent 2 bed room for about 10 dollars a night.
*Again.  you can chose to pay the tourist price..or you can haggle.  I've heard people paying much more for the same place.
The owners..were some of the nicest people ever.
Every morning, they offered us food...Gave us free water...while letting us use their Fridge to store our other drinks. Every day..he would give us directions to places we wanted to go and tell us how much we should pay.
I owe a lot to the owners..for telling us what to pay so we wouldn't get ripped off.

The bus system was way to complicated for us to understand.
After a couple attempt. we only ended up getting off at the wrong stops everywhere we went.
Rarely did you ever hear your stop.
But a bus ticket to anywhere was about 70 cents. Hypothetically you can be on the bus for damn near an hour and pay less than a dollar.

Food was decently priced. Not dirt cheap..but you could get a decent full meal for 7 bucks.
Full plate of food.  I would routinely  be full after the meal.
You can splurge n the tourist area and pay twice that for the same meal
* You have to try the REAL kebabs
*One thing you have to try is Turkish Ice cream.  No point in writing.. the video explains it all

.
The show is worth the extra 50 cents that you'll pay for the Icecream.


Place to go and People to see

You can easily spend a week exploring this city. But luckily all the main historic monuments/features are pretty centered in the old town.
What I loved about this place, was that all the historic features weren't close off and set off to the side...they are all integral parts of the city.  People still use them.
If you love history.this place is for you.



Hadrian's Gate


This gate is right in the Downtown area of the city..You can damn near walk right past it will looking at all the shops on the other side of the street.
But this Gate is about 1900 years old.  Not made in the 1900s... but made in the 1000s.
Its a odd feeling knowing you are walking through a gate that a Roman emperor once walked though..

Hıdırlık Tower


Another Structure that's about 1800 years old. Its been sitting here forever...and now it has he luxury of being right at the edge of a city park.
It got some wear to it..So you can't go inside..but its still an interesting sight to see.  As for the park it sits nex to 

Karaalioğlu Park

Its also a fun place to go to...The days in Turkish summer are almost always in the 90s.  This park has shade...and is right next to the cliffs. A nice breeze rolls through.
Nothing else has to be said.

The Marina

You come to the city to relax right?
Why not go chill by the Marina. My picture doesn't do as much justice as it could have.. there is also a small private beach here.
You can find restaurant on the cliffs and on the remnants of the city wall.
You pay slightly more for the meals here...But in reality..you are paying for the ambiance and the view  


Don't forget to step a little bit out of the city and go on some adventures.
I regret making it to the famous waterfall in the city....But I did manage to make it out to
Perga

2200 year old remnants of an ancient Roman city. History doesn't get much better than this.
Recently..The entry to the ruins has gone from free to almost 10 dollars.  But Id like to hope the money is going into much needed restoration and not someones deep pockets.

You have two options to get to this place.
Bus:  which could cost you at little as 2Lira....but will also take forever.. and you will probably never figure out what bus is what.
I've traveled a lot..and I was at a complete loss.  After multiple attempts.. I gave up and accepted that I would just take a taxi.

TAXIl
Don't let yourself be played! don't pay more than 40Lira for this ride.
I went to a Taxi and flat out told him 30 Lira to Perga. and eventually settled at 35 aha.
But the next day. I told a pair of British guys about the place...and they told me they ended up paying 120 lira..after working down from 150.

The Taxis will let you pay whatever you want.  But I wouldn't pay more than 40Lira

It can easily take you a solid hour and a half to walk around this place.. but its well worth the trip.



Night life

Honestly...I did not find nightlife in the normal spectrum.
I was also there during the week..But I can't imagine to many nightclubs being here.

From what I found were lots of open air and open street bars.
Just randomly roam the city...sit somewhere and get yourself a drink.  Most of these places are full of young people hanging out with their friends. A live band is normally playing  somewhere in the background and they might serve popcorn. haha.

None of these are the place you go trying to pick up girls or get wild.
Turkish people are extremely liberal, but still conservative in a lot of aspect.
 Its so hot during the summer...That I would want to be running around anyway.

Women
Now, again... I didn't come here for women..but..
I still have to say...these girls were awesome.
If I wanted a great women to take care of and take care of me...This is a great place, if you can manage it.

I think Turkish girls have some of the most beautiful faces in the world.  Some of the girls here look stunning.
Completely different from the European look... I'm not even sure how to describe them.
They aren't Arab, but they are really Mediterranean
Also  some of the best legs on girls. The leg length to chest length here is amazing.. even short girls have amazing legs.
The only thing lacking on these girls were their butts.
You have to search hard to find a girl with a great butt...most are pretty flat.

Luckily...its all on view here...Antalya is a pretty liberal city...and its hot as shit. Short shorts and short sleeves are everywhere

  2. La ragione popolarità di ristorante milano è che essi presentano i pasti nel modo più fantasioso e creativo possibile. Ogni piatto è come un'opera d'arte per chef italiani. Sono gli unici ristoranti che producono le pizze da 20 pollici, che hanno respirato varie verdure diverse, frutti di mare, le spezie e carni che non si sarebbe nemmeno pensare di combinare.
