    Haven't been to Turkey myself but my bosses did last year and they are going back in May and loved it! I'm hopefully going back to Greece this year and can't wait. I'm sure you will have a great time. All inclusive, lucky you!

    I've been. Went to a little town called Icmeler near Marmaris a good few years ago.

    Lovely town, lovely food. Lovely holiday and would go back in a flash if it wasn't that I went with my ex so now don't want to go there because of that.

    The one thing though I would say is that, there was an awful lot of toting in that particular town for your business and it did get a bit too much. You couldn't walk 100 yards without being approached.
    That may have changed now as I was there a long time ago and it was always done in a friendly non threatening way. The people were very hospitable and welcoming.

    I went to Turkey, in 2006 and I have never gone anywhere else since, I love Turkey.
    I love Marmaris and Icmeler and when we return twice a year the welcome is tremendous, its like returning to see your family. I have never met such nice people in my life as the Turkish.

    Icmeler is not as bad now as the Mayor clamped down the hassle and they get closed down for hassling now. Ranges from few days, the first time they are caught, then it goes up. I think after the 3rd time they actually get closed down for the whole season.

    i've been to Istanbul. it was lots of fun, although I did O.D. on the sheesha at one point and literally had to throw up a bit:) but other than that, it was an amazing trip. I would recommend it 100 percent.
