Again, it was a long driving day to to city of Kas....It is nice to be here though. You can actually see an island of Greece that is a source of debate between the Turks and the Greeks. The Greeks have demanded a radius of 12 km around the island that the Turks cannot go to but the 12 km would expand well into the city of Kas....It makes no sense.
The ancient Lycian city of Kas is now a quiet seaside village lying on a stunning section of the Turquoise Coast at the foot of the Taurus Mountains. It is a perfect place to stroll and you can explore the narrow alleyways or the small harbour. The town is also dotted with relics from the past and there are a number of impressive rock tombs in the hills above the town as well as a unique seaside amphitheatre. There are some excellent restaurants near the harbour where you can dine outside in the evening warmth, eating delicious locally caught fish. We had some for dinner and it was fantastic.
Kas feels like a little, cute seaside town. Very nice. Very touristy too though. Great shopping....wish we had been there longer.
After dinner, I headed off with Burak (our guide) and some of the other young energized ones to go out dancing in one of the local bars....fun, fun, fun. I love the Turkish music here. You can't help but dance! :)
