We arrived early in the morning after taking the night bus, and hired a taxi to take us to our hotel that cost close to the price of our bus tickets. Not so cool. Taxi's in Turkey are ridiculously over-priced!! We also didn't score on the weather while in Antalya- it rained off and on for our 2 nights there :( We spent our time in Antalya mostly walking the streets, shopping and eating in cafes. The waterfront is beautiful with the mountains in the background.

We toured the local Antalya Museum which houses statues of Greek gods. Mostly we just wandered the streets. Our favourite part of Antalya was a delicious dinner we ate at a restaurant called "Vanilla." If in Antalya make sure you go to dinner here the food is delicious!! On a super creepy note, while eating dinner here some men in an apartment across from the restaurant started taking photos of us and the restaurant owner had to contact the buildings manager to report them. Super duper creepy!!
One of the nights we spent in Antalya we stumbled upon a local pub with a live band- they were great, but we didn't understand a word of what they were singing as it was all in Turkish!! From Antalya we took the bus 4 hours to the town of Kas.
