GREETINGS FROM TURKEY
DIDIM + ALTINKUM
Didim is a small seaside town in the Aydın Province of western Turkey, just under two hours away from Bodrum. The larger area of Altinkum has a stretch of water which is accompanied by a variety of bars and restaurants, a popular holiday town for tourists. We stayed at an all-inclusive resort a short taxi ride from Altinkum where we escaped to for that famous Hammam scrub and a trip to buy genuine fakes!

ESSENTIAL TURKEY TRAVEL ADVICE
Turkey uses the Turkish Lira (TRY ). For best rates see here. However, the British pound is very much in demand and you will see prices in £. ATMs are widely available. Most credit cards are accepted. Tipping in Turkey is customary in restaurants (10%) and at hotels but not for taxi drivers, although appreciated.
