Market in Alaçatı

After checking out ruins it was time for some beach and water fun and my dad found us a great deal in the local paper (obviously geared towards locals, to fill the hotels during low season) and we checked into one of these ‘vacation factories’ on the peninsula close to Izmir.

I could not imagine to stay here during summer, when it is overrun by German and British tourists, everything is crowded and it is too hot anyways. But this time of year is very pleasant … more on the hotel later when I write my tripadvisor review ..

But first thing we did was to check out the local market and had lots of fun and bought quite some cheap stuff … surprisingly, there was not much willingness for bargaining (It’s a market, not a bazaar) .. but the deals overall were great and we might go again.
