  1. I've been living in Izmir, or thereabouts, for many years. Farthest away from Izmir, I lived in Çeşme, at the end of the peninsula which juts out from the south part of Izmir. I spent a year there. Çeşme is very dead in the winter, to the point that I think it would be maddening for me, yet I do miss it because it's so quiet. In Çeşme, during the off season, everything's closed, and it's as if everyone goes into hibernation. The expats in Çeşme, mostly Brits, seem to go home early, so the winter months are exceedingly dull. I'm planning to move south, to leave Izmir. My main choices are Fethiye, Antalya, and Kaş. Fethiye I've been too, but it doesn't seem to have much charm for me, except for some very beautiful coastline and of course, Ölüdeniz. Now that opinion was based only on a visit of a few days, so I'm sure I don't have the full picture. During the summer, I visited Antalya. Antalya seems like a city which has a lot going for it, and wouldn't die during the winter. I think the ideal place for me would be where I could live in a reasonably quiet place, but be able to get to the city easily for those things that cities offer, and of course, beaches and sea, I must have those! While in Antalya I met with Fil, a resident of Antalya. I asked Fil where, if he could live anywhere in Turkey, that would be. Fil said, "Kaş." That's where Cukurbagli lives. Fil went on to say that Antalya is indeed seasonal, like a lot of other places which depend on tourism. He said there was a rather active expat life in Antalya as well, so I wouldn't feel so isolated. But in the end he said that he would like to live in Kaş. I've never seen Kaş, and I intend to visit it soon, during the off-season, to see what it's like during the off season. This is a very vague topic starter, I know, about as vague as my thoughts about moving down to the South Aegean or the Mediterranean. So I don't even know what I'm asking for here, I'm just soliciting comments! Where is the best place to live?
  2. You must apply for your residence permit online, at https://e-ikamet.goc.gov.tr/.

  3. Hey everyone, New to the forum and thought this would be the best avenue for my question(s). I'm currently working in a kindergarten but looking to move on hopefully to a kolej. I have a CELTA and about 7 years ESL teaching under my belt. I know that there are a lot of super qualified teachers that work in the private big schools here in Antalya but I was just wondering what my chances would be with just having a CELTA and experience? Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
  4. Hi, I'm relocating to Antalya and considering renting a villa in Palm City (or similar compound with like facilities: 24 hour security, indoor/outdoor pools, gym, etc). Do you, or anyone you know have any experience in Palm City? Are there any other compounds (within 30 mins to the heart of Antalya) that you would recommend also considering? Any recommendations and/or feedback would be appreciated; especially on issues that are not highlighted in the glossy company brochures (like potential electricity cuts, sewerage/drainage odours, noise, etc). Guidance appreciated. Thanks in Advance, Dean
