Why is Marmaris such a popular holiday resort in Turkey?
There are certainly plenty of hotels to choose from to suit all budgets.
The beach is long and sandy next to a long promenade lined with small bars and restaurants.
During the summer season it becomes a lively buzzing resort filled with tourists.
The last time we were in Marmaris was over 12 years ago, so we decided to pay it a visit to see if it had changed!
We were amazed just how much it had!
With hotels offering great value, the sea and guaranteed sunshine for most of the summer in Turkey, perhaps the resort of Marmaris could be the perfect holiday hotspot waiting for you!?

  1. Artık YouTube'da Türkçe altyazıları seçebilirsiniz 👍🏻🙋‍♀️🤠

  2. Does anybody know where Mick+ Trudie are from? Sounds like the midlands

  3. To start with they were already a poor country despite it being a resort country and it was still hard for them to find work but now with hotels keeping all the money while only hiring a few people the hotels are run down and you shouldn't expect much nor is paying more worth it, i know other countries are going to get modernized soon though because of upcoming technology that is already starting to automate things so perhaps they don't feel it's worth investing into things right now, every country has to stop using fossil fuels too thus the modern electric buses starting to show ups so A LOT more is going to change, i think we'll see whole new hotels being built and old ones knocked down.

    A lot of it is also just about money right now too and too many scams just like other countries, and even if you book an apartment or something they might try and go back on their word and put you into a really broken down moldy room that should not be used by anyone, then act like they're mad for not eating at the hotel bar all the time when the food isn't the best or is really bad cos they've fired all their chefs too and if they have one the food will be very basic just like all the hotels now, just stay away from the seafood if it's on the menu lol.

    Since 2008 it's been better just for a quiet holiday for 1 week – 10 days but you don't want to stay an extra 4 days… there's just not as much to do unless you like sports, but entertainment doesn't exist in hotels anymore and no kids clubs either cos they've cut back hugely on everything, it's going to be a few decades before things start being totally modernized so it's gonna be like this for a while now… shame cos it was a fun place but if you go with kids it's harder to find stuff to do your kids now if you take them. Me, my parents and brother are going in September (we hope anyway) but we'll just have to spend time on the beach, maybe do the safari jeep and then just chill and eat out as usual like the other times you've gone to Marmaris, better bring your word searches, a book and some music to keep you occupied.

    If you want to go for a trip go for the Turkish Night with a meal and dancers which is like 3 hours there the 3 course meal and drinks are good and so are the dancers, it's the only entertainment worth going to see now unless you can find a bar with some going on, the drag acts are really fun.

  4. Went there. Not friendly. Will not return. Gumbet much better…

  5. Love your shows, earthy, straight from the hip and credible! Am doing my own show soon and wonder what type of editing equipment you use please?

  6. We had one of our best holidays in early 90s in Mamaris, small family run hotel. Great company with the other guests only about 10 of us there, fantastic.

  7. Bana eslmle beraber gezdigim yerleri hatirlattiniz tesekkur ederim selam ve sevgiler gonderiyorum

  8. We adore Marmaris. We've been on holiday all over Europe and Northern Africa, but we always come back to Turkye and Marmaris in specific. Less than 2 months to go and we'll be back again!

  9. I stay in Icmeler in 2004 and, I take a bus to Marmaris it's nice place X x X

  10. hi mick and trudie . we have been going to marmaris and icmeler for 30 years and seen so many changes there . we used to love marmaris , but we found it become what we called the blackpool of turkey . dont get me wrong , it is a beautiful place . but we find it is more adapted for the young nowadays . i find icmeler is a heck of a lot quieter , but only round the bay . the hassle from the shops in the market used to drive us crazy . i would recommend marmaris as it is cheap to stay there and is lovely , but as i said it is more for the younger people . armutalan was the furthest area back , now it goes up the mountains . too big for us .

  11. We are due to go marmaris in 5 weeks, first time in turkey for us,whats the weather normallylike in april?

  12. Marmaris is a meat market. Kurdish guys looking for one night stand and visa opportunity from attention desperate British and Russian girls.

  13. thanks for share my home town.s video of marmaris 🙏

  14. Thank you so much for your wonderful Youtube video. We appreciate your attention and work and we do look forward to seeing you in Summer 2022. All the best from Marmaris and Icmeler Hoteliers.

  15. Is there a large expat community in Marmaris? What is it like to live here on a permanent basis? Great video – as always!!

  16. It's not the motorcycle that bothers you, the fact that you lead a comfortable life in my country, and that I live by crawling, is a vehicle on the motorcycle!

  17. I living in this Town. Thx to ad to Marmaris
    Have a nice holiday and come visit for us

  18. Greetings Mike, I did my military service in Marmaris 3 years ago. Aksaz naval base. It is also a NATO base. It is an amazing place. We love you. Take care of yourselves.

  19. just paid £215.00 for 1 week, beach front hotel with bed and breakfast, return flights (jet2) transfers to hotel from airport, seat selection. roll on the 6th November. Some good deals right now..grab them while you can. Normally in Pattaya Thailand for November so but sandbox is confusing so going in July.

  20. What a beautiful country. This area reminds me of villages in Italy, France n Portugal.

  21. I love Marmaris so much Dear Mick and Dear Trudie.😊

  22. you're choosing most cheap seasons about the accomodations.

  23. My first ever holiday abroad back in 97 with the lads….. absolutely loved the place, people and culture. We were lucky enough that our barman took us under his wing and took us to the real Turkey experience with all his mates……so many great memories.

  24. This is a very unusual video I've ever seen. So thank you for this special gift dear Mick Amca and Trudie. Thank you… :))

  25. I was there in second decade of June this year. The place and sea were exciting and spectacular. I have a strong desire to return to this place of pleasure again. 🙂 Thank you for refreshing my memorize.

  26. Mick amca & Trudie abla🥰

  27. Wow changed a lot since I went in 1996 I wonder if Bar Street is still there.

  28. Had quite a few holidays in Marmaris and Olu Deniz over the years, always loved the weather (even thunderstorms in Oct!) the food and Hospitality, it always felt a welcoming area….Nice to see how its changed, but I remember a lot of the areas and views!….Thanks.

  29. I lived in there for 6 years. I can easily say it is the best place in Turkey

  30. I’m more and more gung-ho in going to Turkey with all these beautiful places you are showing

  31. I'm 30 years old, I haven't been able to visit the places you visited yet. We are pariahs in our own country. My advice to Europeans. They should come here during all summer holidays. With the money they have saved in 2 months, they will live in paradise here. Come and experience this paradise land 😀 Someone has to do it 😀

  32. I’ll say marmaris and around it’s probably most beautiful place in turkey. You guys thanks for making this nice video and sharing your experience. Have fun and enjoy it 🙂 and Come to Switzerland next 😀
