Still busy but not as many tourists, exchange rate has not been affected, 4 Lira to the pound widely available or more if you shop around in resort.

We got back yesterday and you will get 4.15 exchange,it does seem quieter than last year and some restaurants are empty however there are lots of people walking around with all inclusive bands on and this obviously has affected some restraunts,but don't let this put you off as we had another great holiday in the very beutifull icmeler

Just got back and whilst it was fairly busy in town I too noticed quite a few AI wristbands. A lot of the Turkish people we talked to said things were picking up a little but still quiet. One or two of the trip sellers we knew said that no-one is buying trips and the lads in the bars said things were a little better but they had never known it as quiet. I thought a few places were busy like the Irish bar, Scotia, Friends Wonder bar etc but some bars like Buffalo looked to be under populated. The restaurants on the square we well full but some others looked to be not that busy.

With many travel agents now cancelling all holidays to Tunisia,, and potential issues with the Greek currency is this likely to have an impact on the number of people going to Turkey/ Icmeler.

People will have paid their holidays up front and will still want to go somewhere, so Turkey may get the benefit of the tragic events in Tunisia
