Yes I agree it would be nice to see the contrasting differences but my fear would be there'd be very little open. I think IF I decided on a winter break I might stick to Dalaman; apparently apart from the airport it is quite a nice place to visit.
Thanks for the info; maybe we'll forget about a Turkish break in winter atm.
Plenty of bars and shops open in Marmaris and always busy but not with tourists
Nice to sit in the winter sun in the day then go to Yunus bar in evening for live music
Madaza - if you decide to brave the winter in Turkey (!! and we have been over for a couple of weeks at New Year for the past 10 years or so) I would not think of Dalaman. Yes there is a sizeable small town - but it would be very Turkish, you would probably be better staying at Dalyan where you would find a few expats and generally people more used to dealing with tourists (well that is my impression!) Normally during our winter visits, we have enjoyed brilliant sunny days - where you can sit out in the sun at midday without a jacket on (but with jeans and boots!) - and freezing cold nights, cuddled up around a log fire! Also Blondiescot's advice is good - try Antalya for All Inclusive hotels open the year round, or combine via a visit to the wonderful city of Istanbul.
Hi madaaza can you tell me were the flights from Glasgow and can you tell me the link please thanks
Manchester and Gatwick only I'm afraid.
