Yeah, just wait at the bottom and there are loads of busses that go there!
how come you are moaning about the price £4 ( just over a beer in alanya) try any national trust in uk for that if you had botherd to research your visit beforehand you would have found out the there is an old quarter there and plenty to see it would take you a couple of hours to go round it there is a mosque you can visit please daryl think before you write on this site bus number 4 is 2,50 tl typical pomm attitude next time dont leave your all inclusive hotel mate
