Landscapes of Turkey (Bodrum and Marmaris) A Countryside Guide

By Anderson, Brian & Anderson, Eileen

London: Sunflower Books, 1991. Tall masts, the sun shimmering on the sea, boat-filled harbours, castles, minarets, and mosques are inescapable images of Bodrum and Marmaris. But there is more, much more. Lively and colourful as they are, it is sometimes a pleasure to escape the bustle of these popular resorts, to find solitude in the countryside, and this book shows you just how easy it can be. Although walking is emphasised, the book is not intended solely for walkers. The car tours will get you out and about on voyages of discovery, to visit regions of great natural beauty or historical interest. Among the not-to-be-missed excursions described are visits to the travertines at Pamukkale and to the fascinating rock tombs carved out of cliffs, towering above the river between Dalyan and Caunos and quite easily reached from Bodrum. Above all else, Bodrum and Marmaris have one feature in common they are both gateways to some of the most exciting walking country you can expect to find in the Aegean. Best time for walking: April, May, September, October. Includes 11 car tours, 52 long and short walks, 19 picnic suggestions Plans of Bodrum and Marmaris plus fold-out touring map 136p.illus (col) index. 1st UK Edition.. Softcover. Near Fine.
