I have been seven times to Turkey most recently in Feb to Side, however although Bodrum and Side were both excellent in value and service, the times we have had in Marmaris does not compare. On two occasions local shop keepers and restaurant owners have recognised me and remember my name from previous years, that is some feet given the millions of visitors they see each year.
I have now many friends in Marmaris and even received Christmas cards from them. You should be proud that you have a holiday resort which is friendly, fun and value for money with all the locals looking as if they enjoy life and given the fact so many strangers are in their country. Keep up the good work and do not change.
