Turkey is my favourite Islamic country and Ataturk is the man who made it so! How is it not possible to admire a man who made this country so great. A grand statue alongside a beautiful harbour and a busy bazaar.

If you are visiting Marmaris then have a walk around the marina at night, it is beautiful, plenty of photo opportunities, including the statue of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk which is right by the sea. plenty of bars and restuarants are nearby as well.

There are some lovely places to wander around here. It is close the indoor Bazzar and shops. The harbour with all the amazing boats are a delight to walk around.
