We took the plane from Istanbul to Dalaman airport, approx. 1 hour trip and we had airport- hotel transfer with a private minibus, 30 min. We arrived to our first stop called ?Dalyan?. Our hotel was located by the river, 10 min walk from the town. The town is very close to ancient ruins, it?s under the protected area. That?s why we loved this unexploited small town. We stayed here for two nights. It was great discovery for us, we will definitely comeback again. (more info about Dalyan http://www.dalyaninfo.com/Dalyan/dalyan_en.html )
