If you come Olympos you should do these things: swim at night once, go to orange bar once, be on the beach at sunrise.
I went to Bodrum last year and it was FANTASTIC! Both me and my boyfriend had the best time EVER!
I've just come back from Kusadasi. I had the best time of my life. I had never been to Turkey before, but I would certainly recommend it to anyone. The food is nice, couldn't meet nicer people, you get treated like royalty, and it's cheap.
If you're like me and on a package tour with included accommodation, the best map I've seen of Istanbul is sold for just US$2 at Cordial House HI just off Piyerloti Caddesi up towards the sights. They also have a bar and cafe which I would recommend.
I've been to Marmaris 2 years running and it is excellent! Already booked again for July 2004, can't wait. Also take British Pounds with you. You'll find it easier if you can't get used to the MILLIONS in Turkish currency!
