This was a truly lovely outing for us. We saw some amazing things. The turks are so proud of their heritage and really appreciate other people being respective when visiting these places of importance.

This lovely statue stands looking out over one of the busiest parts of Marmaris, near the entrance to the bazaar. If you walk down either the main street or along the very pleasant seaside promenade you cannot miss it. I always picture Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, who is revered in Turkey, smiling as he watches the many visitors to his country... More

in my opinion this statue to the greatest ever Turkish statesman is ok but a much better tribute is in the beautiful port of fetiyeh

The statue of Atatürk is something everyone who visit Marmaris should see. Placed on the marina overlooking the busy street he stands. After seeing the statue, take a walk along the marina and see all the huge sail boat. There is very beautiful in the evening with lots of life and people.

This is my fifth time in Turkey, and ofcourse, every city, town and village central squarre has Ataturk Monument. Compared with monuments in Antalya or Istanbul, this monument is simply average. In my humble oppinion, this great man, has better monument in smaller - nearby community of Icmeler.

Mustafa was very nice and accommodating, such a terrific host. He was friendly too and allowed us to watch tv even though we hadn't bought anything, something most places wouldn't do.
