  1. Hi, I'm an US Army retiree with a valid retiree ID card. I'll be arriving at Izmir tomorrow and want to make a quick stop at the shoppette or the exchange for some Newports ( I don't exactly know where I need to go to shop). Do I need a special permit? If so, where can I obtain it? Thanks in advance for your replies.
  2. I love clothes, shoes and bling and when I think of living in Turkey full time the biggest problem for me is buying decent clothes ! Now I leave clothes in Turkey so I don't have to bring case loads of stuff each time I come , well that's the idea I find a lot of Turkish clothing to be over priced and poor quality, The sizes are also much smaller than the UK. I suppose I could shop on Ebay or online. How or where do you ladies buy your clothes?
  3. Alabaster is a natural stone made of gypsum or calcite. It forms over thousands of years in water, or on the floors of caves as stalagmites. While it is white in its purest form, the sedimentary process often causes it to mix with layers of iron oxide, which create colorful bands and patterns. Alabaster can also be dyed into various colors. Since alabaster is soft enough to carve, artisans over the millennia have used it to make decorative vessels and ornaments. It is also translucent, so it is often lathed thinly enough to allow the light to shine through. Where to Buy Alabaster Alab
  4. Since Turkey is a Muslim country, Pork isn't always easy to find. But some stores which sell pork can be found in the tourism cities and towns along the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts. There, the Migros and Kipa grocery stores, among others, keep gammon ham, bacon, and sausage in refrigerators separate from the non-pork meats. Unfortunately, pork is more expensive in Turkey than it probably is in your home country, and the bacon is usually higher in fat. Some tourism towns have specialty shops where you can buy much higher quality (and cheaper) pork meats. Since their clientele is almost
  5. If you want to order groceries online and have them delivered to your home, try the Sanal Market (virtual market) of Migros, Turkey's nationwide grocery store. You can also order from the Migros Sanal Market by phone by calling 444 1044. You can choose your delivery time and pay by credit card, debit card, or in cash. Service may be limited if you live in an area beyond their service range. Another option is GurmeNet. They offer more exotic foods, especially from the far east. They also sell frozen foods, but you have to purchase some dry ice to keep it frozen during the delivery.
  6. Hi all i am gonna buy some goods from chinese web sites as WISH or ALIEXPRESS. We just pay the product price online and the ship it to us. it is usually possible to choose free shipping to turkey. okey. Now what will happen for delivery? does the post agent bring it to my mentioned address at my home door? Should i have to pay some more money to him? or i should go somewhere like PTT or Cargo and pay Tax or KDV or something like those to receive my box? i hope you answer me "such a delivery is completely free in turkye";-) My good is wirstwatch and bicyc
  7. A large shopping mall right at Kuşadası's cruise ship port. It consists of upscale shops selling name-brand products, as well as fine restaurants and cafes.
  8. Vatan Bilgisayar (computer), is Kuşadası's largest computer and electronics store, 0pen from 10:00 AM to 9:45 PM. Their main customer service number is 0 850 222 5656.
  9. Tespo, a no-frills grocery store in Kuşadası, is basically a warehouse, where things are offered for sale in the boxes and crates they came in. In this way they save money, then pass their savings on to their customers. You have to join Tespo, and have a card to shop there. All you need to do is get a tax number from the local tax office. Their website has an English option.
  10. This Migros store offers groceries and supplies to yacht captains in Kuşadası and the local neighborhood. Open daily from 9:00 AM to 10:00 PM. The Migros national customer service number (free) is 444 1 044.
  11. Bizim is a no-frills wholesale grocery store in Kuşadası, open daily from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM. Bizim Toptan'ss main customer service number is 0 212 577 7552.
  12. Kuşadası's grand bazaar is a complex of shops where you can buy clothing, carpets, jewelry, spices, and more.
  13. Recommended by Lonely Planet, the Old Orient Carpet Bazaar and its owner, Celal Çoşkun, has a strong reputation for his extensive knowledge of hand-made Turkish carpets, as well as his honesty in dealing with customers. Celal not only sells fine hand-made carpets and kilims, he also repairs them. If you're looking for this carpet shop and ask other shopkeepers in the bazaar where it is, don't listen to them if they say that the shop has burned down or that the owner has died. Unfortunately some may resort to this kind of dishonesty, and try to draw you to another shop instead. Note:
  14. I'm trying out Migros's online grocery ordering system for the first time. Looks great! In my neighborhood, I often can't get things I want, like big bottles of soda (I ordered a few cases of that) and spinach (which my local market has only occasionally). Since I don't have a car, I have to take a big backpack with me and lug everything back home. Now they'll just bring it all to me. I figure before long I'll be complaining about how I have to lug the groceries from the front door to the kitchen. The system wouldn't take my foreigner identification number (apparently it actually looks yo
  15. 95 Sokak is one of the major shopping spots in Fethiye. It features a variety of stores selling a variety of things, not to mention its restaurants and cafes.
  16. This market offers more than just fish. There is also various kinds of meats, vegetables, spices, and other things for sale here, also an excellent restaurant. The "Salı Pazarı" or Tuesday street market, is also held near here every Tuesday.
  17. Hello! My husband is going to be visiting his family in Turkey, but I can't go. So he promises to bring me some gifts. I've been to Turkey several times, so I have most of the souvenir type stuff. Besides a few food items, I don't know what to tell him to bring. Any suggestions from those of you who are living there now? What music/artists are popular now? I love Turkish pop, but don't know who's big now. Any other gift ideas?
  18. This will be my first trip to Turkey, and my company was nice enough to put me up at the Istanbul Marriott Hotel Asia (on the Asian side of Istanbul). That said, I still do want to see the Blue Mosque and the rest of Istanbul -- especially the Grand Bazaar. I would really appreciate it if someone can help me find my way from the Istanbul Marriott Hotel Asia to the European side of Istanbul. Train, bus, ferry -- I'm open to anything as long as it's fast (and hopefully reasonably priced)! Any input would be totally appreciated.Thanks!

  20. How far away is Fener, Çağlayan, Şirinyalı and Yeşilbahçe from city center, both in terms of in terms of traffic (do the main roads between this area and city center have heavy traffic during rush hour?) Are there buses from/to this area from/to the city center and if so, how long does it take to get to city center? Do you know the neighborhood name that has the 5M Migros in Konyaaltı?
  21. I have been to Turkey in June, I walked thru the spice and grand bazaar, in the old covered market, there are souvenir shops. I need the name and contact of the merchant who has the store opposite to the lampshade store. The merchant I am referring to sells ceramic stuff, ladies jewellery, pashmina shawls, ceramic plates etc. I have lost his contact.

    Quality souvenirs

    Hello Last time I was in Bodrum, I had to experience the fact that a lot of crap is on sale near the harbour. I am looking for typical Turkish/Middle Eastern things such as nazar's (evil eyes) and tespih's (bead chains of sorts). Furthermore, I would like to buy a cezve (Turkish coffee pot), tea glasses and stuff like that. Does anyone have any recommendations regarding a place to go, if I am looking for this? I am unfortunately probably not spending more than a day in Bodrum (and, effectively, Turkey) before moving on to Greece, so I am not going to have very much time to look. Besi
