Köyceğiz In all honesty, this title doesn’t do the lake and its village justice. Köyceğiz is not on most people’s radar when traveling to Turkey, yet it is right behind the corner of a major attraction: Kaunos. Most people visit Kaunos from Dalyan, which is right across the river. Granted, it is the easiest way, but you have to like the tourist circus that comes with it. If you are searching for a more authentic and serene experience, then make Köyceğiz your base and visit Kaunos after a boat trip across Lake Köyceğiz.

HIDDEN BEHIND A SMALL ENCHANTED FOREST: PINARA!

Pınara - Pinara It’s strange how one of the six principal cities from Lycia can be almost invisible, while in plain sight. Still, that is the case with Pinara (or Pınara in Turkish). Perched high up on a mountain, you won’t easily spot the city from a distance. And despite its size, the entrance is hidden behind the most enchanting little forest, making it all the more magical to explore this beautiful Lycian site. Words that come to mind when visiting Pinara are untouched, undiscovered, mystical and tranquil.

Kayaköy: Ghost Town becomes tourist attraction | Culture

KAYAKÖY: GHOST TOWN BECOMES TOURIST ATTRACTION

Kayaköy Some would call the ghost town of Kayaköy, near Fethiye in Turkey an off the beaten path destination. We won’t. It may not be on top of most tourist’s list, but it has become a more favorable place to visit in recent years after Russell Crowe decided that Kayaköy was the ideal location for his film The Water Diviner. This put Kayaköy back on the map after the village had turned into a sleep mode due to the population exchange in 1923 at the conclusion of the Greco-Turkish war and the severe earthquake in 1957 that destroyed most of Kayaköy’s buildings. If you ask yourself if Kayaköy is worth a visit, the answer is yes! And here’s the reason(s) why!
