From what I've seen prices are still very reasonable. We certainly found that at the end of May.

Steve

If you are referring to Icmeler in particular.

We visited last October and again this past May.

We certainly saw an increase in some prices.(restaurants and bars that is)

Food and trips are still good value despite the poor exchange rate. The biggest change from last year is the increase in the price of alcohol which is making Turkey no longer a cheap destination.

Taxes in alcohol went up in January and also the equivalent of business rates: so it's not that tradespeople are making more money out of tourists. The exchange rate doesn't help at all.

You get even less for Scottish notes in Icmeler, we were there 2 years ago and the exchange rate for Scottish notes was 5 -10% less than English notes depending on where you went.

Tintins was 8 lira last week for a bottle. Just about all the others were charging 10 apart from Three Bells (near Romeo's) who charged us 6!! but sadly closed down the following night. Some bars will charge 6/7 for draft but the quality is not as good.
