Oludeniz

Oludeniz ©
Famous for its big lagoon, Oludeniz acts like a magnet for mass tourism, featuring some of the most photographed beaches on the Mediterranean.
On the 11th (Tue), steep yourself in history at Downtown Fethiye, then see a world frozen in time at Kayakoy, and then kick back and relax at Blue Lagoon (Oludeniz Beach).

Plan my Oludeniz trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Cairo, Egypt to Oludeniz is an approximately 8-hour combination of flight, bus, and taxi. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Cairo in September, with highs in Oludeniz at 34°C and lows at 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Tue) early enough to drive to Dalyan.

A physical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia, the transcontinental city of Istanbul serves as a living reminder of the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman empires.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sultanahmet District and Hagia Sophia Museum / Church (Ayasofya). Get a sense of the local culture at Basilica Cistern and Topkapi Palace. There's much more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Sultan Ahmed Mosque, explore the world behind art at Kariye Museum (The Chora Church), admire the landmark architecture of Suleymaniye Cami , and steep yourself in history at Eyup Sultan Mosque (Eyup Sultan Camii).
