Advantages: Amazing food
Disadvantages: Nothing at all
I have only been to Turkey once so far and I went to this samll village called Kalkan. As far as I am aware this Village is not very widely known as a tourist resort, and is one of the few 'unspoilt' places I have been.
It is far from the Zante's, Benidorm's and Blackpools many people call a holiday. Its a true culture change and the best experience I have had so far in my life.
I went when I was 16, not really knowing what to expect as I had never been to turkey before. The hotel was amazing, very clean and the staff were so helpful and polite.
The little village had everything I wanted, all so close and compact together. It had the little shops and stalls, quite a few hotels and bars, and even on the sea front on the edge of the village a couple of little night clubs. They were amazing, nothing like any of the clubs here in Yorkshire.
The best part of Kalkan was the restaurants. I had some amazing food. If like some of the ablve holiday destinations you wanted to eat a burger and chips there was no way you would get them in the restaurante they were served in a cafe on the outskirts. The food in the restaurant was true turkish food. All of it was freshly cooked and fantastic.
I would definatly go to Kalkan again, and I hope it does not become 'Blackpool' in the future. - Not that there is anything wrong with Blackpool - but when I go to Turkey - I want to feel like I am in Turkey.
