Turkish Lira: "Currency" Fethiye Shopping Tip by ILoveToVisitTurkey
Fethiye Shopping: 3 reviews and 5 photos
To any new visitor to turkey.
I have seen on this site that people speak of Turkish Lira millions example 2.5 million TL to the UK Pound.
It has changed some years ago so now - example 2.5 YTL (New Turkish Lira) to UK Pound.
So now you will not be confused when reading here.
What to buy: Jewellery, Carpets, Lighting, Clothes, Shoes, Bags, Spices,Turkish Delight and lots of other items....many hand made.
What to pay: Traders will accept UK Pound and Euro but be certain you can convert it in your head so you know exactly what you are paying them.
Above all - Barter, it is expected, and remember be polite but do not be a pushover. In some instances you should expect to pay about 50% of the original asking price, if you are lucky or good at negotiating you could pay less...but always remember they generally only have 6 months in which to make a living!
Have a great holiday.......I Love Turkey!
