Sep 11, 2008 - Olympos & Chimera, Turkey

Ravi -- After our second (and thankfully final) overnight bus journey in Turkey, we arrived at the coastal hub Antalya, changing buses to arrive at the small village of Olympos. (Or rather a road leading to Olympos, where we had to change again to a small minivan to actually get to Olympos town for another few bucks, despite the assurances to the contrary when we bought our tickets!). Olympos was very un-Turkey. In fact, we saw more Europeans and Aussies than Turks during our brief stay here. Our guesthouse was run by a friendly Aussie,...

Oct 3, 2007 - Olympos, Turkey

We spent two days in Olympos, at Bayram's Treehouses. Very relaxed, very fun, with ruins, flames that burn out of the rocks, Efes beer, a beach, lots of friends, and great dinners and breakfasts. Highly recommend chilling for a few days in Olympos. (Note - the photos of Santa Claus is in Demere, where the historical Saint Nicholas is buried. I don't think the historical saint wore the same type of suit, though.)

Jun 4, 2007 - Olympos/Cirali

Well we took off from Goreme on an overnight bus and that is a story on its own. We had to grab another bus at Antalya to Olympos. We finally arrived here and the place is beautiful. We lucked in by staying at a hotel called Hotel Canada. The lady ıs from Calgary and she was very helpful. We are leaving here tomorrow and going as far as Kas(pro Cash). We will stay there a few days before heading on. We are getting lots of emails and it is great to hear from everyone. Wish İ could show all the pics. İ willl post the pics tomorrow.

Aug 13, 2005 - Turkey Days 7 & 8 - Sailing Demre to Olympos

Merhaba The next couple of days were spent relaxing on the gulet, sailing around a small and peaceful part of the Med. We sailed above an area where an earthquake in the 400s struck, sinking most of a city. From the surface we could see some of the walls and shapes of buildings still, above the water some walls were standing, some arches, steps, and when we swam ashore a couple of builings were semi intact. We played off the boat all the time with regular swimming breaks. Hangs off ropes being dragged behind, jumping of the side, off the...

Oct 16, 2004 - Hey Hey we're the Monkey's...

Olympos is a tiny village not far from Antalya, in the valley of mountains & on the Med. It is a very chilled out, relaxed place. To get to the beach you walk through the Ancient city of Olympos...which is really great to walk around in. There is not much left of the city (obviously) but the ruins are still impressive in some parts. We spent three days here, stayed in a tree house which was interesting. The only plus and sometimes downfall of the village and place where we stayed was the amount of backpackers. We had one really rough late...
