    New Year @ Kusadasi

    some places on the Marina ..will charge up to 150 Tl on new years eve..and that is no food and very expensive drinks..and yes it does get very busy..
  2. interesting post on another forum...posted on a turkish forum yesterday ,although not Kusadasi i would imagine the same applies .. At the recent British Consulate meeting here in Didim and Akbuk it was announced that you do not have to have a Turkish driving licence now BUT you must have your UK card licence translated and notarised in Turkey and carry this translation with you in your car/wallet. The British Consulate also said that if any insurance company refused to insure you or charge you more because you don't have a Turkish licence then this is wrong according to the Turkish Highway Driving Law (don't know the exact name) and its article 40 section G. For more information I would e-mail the British Consulate for more information..happy days

    Tintiıng Wındows

    i did go and look into getting tinted windows done in my car ,luckily i took a turkish friend with me ,only to find out it is illegal to have this done ,and carries a 150 tl fine if stopped by traffic polis,new cars that have already smoked glass windows are exempt from fines...oh well we live and learn..

    Rental Agency In Kusadasi

    do you have any turkish trustworhty freinds in Kusadasi shark24( they will put feelers out for you)..sometimes it makes things so much easier..its not that difficult to get an apartment in a nominal rent..problem is here in most case they will double the rent in the high season well worth getting a contract (say 5 years or how long you plan to stay here ) then get it notarised and translated in both english and turkish..

    Off Season In Kusadasi?

    my advice would be is to rent for a while ..3 months,6 months or whatever, that will give you plenty of time to get to know the place ,also to find your way about..a great time to buy at the moment .but winter is even better ..loads of bargains to be had ..

    Fuzzy Digiturk Picture

    ..seems to be the same all round in different forums with digiturk..either fuzzy picture or loss of programmes ..i got shot of them over a year ago ..and now have dreambox ..i am actually getting more programmes and sky than i had in the uk ..very seldom any problems with it ..(unless there is internet problems..) it works with 2 dishes between 90cm and 1 metre .going through a modem then throgh you computer ..i pay 300 TL a year for this ..first payment will be due this october ..initial installment with all the equipment with the first years rent included ..around 750 TL i don,t think theres anything to touch it in turkey.
