Use your imagination and erase the commercial backgrounds, lovely trip back into time. Take a hat, no shade and very dusty.

Great area to wander around. Lots of ancient ruins to discover. Side, the town itself, has a nice bazaar. It offers variety of restaurants, and stores. Food is always good, however clothing brands on sale are all fake tourist trap and should be avoided.

You could travel by bus, it's the cheapest way, or if you want to take in more sites you could go on an organised trip or if your more adventurous hire a car for the day and explore the surrounding areas.
