Hi all i will be flying solo for three weeks in Turkey i have kinda decided that i will cruise all the way down the aegean coast and then spend prob two weeks on the med coast. Any tips on destinations and accomidation would be good. I am sick of reading travel books
I arrive on the 20th and be in Cannakle for Anzac day on the 25th after that i will be on the coastal road.

Try to organise or buy a hotel room beforehand. I went on a package tour to Turkey from Germany December year before last, and I paid 220 EUR for seven days all inklusive - airfare, swanky 5 star hotels, all-you-can-eat food, travelguide, coach ride all over Turkey. You can problably get a Turkish owned travel agency to advice you on and book you into a five star hotel for the same money as you would spent in a hostel.

Btw, in Antalya it is hard to get around without your own car.

I agree with t_maia. You can organize your travel before going to Turkey. The prices are really very low and the quality-especially service quality- is good. However be sure to see the world out of the 5 stars hotels. Because this hotels have almost everything, so most of tourists just leave the country before seeing it! Also you should spend a couple of days -in my opinion at least 5 days- in ─░stanbul. You will see when you leaving from ─░stanbul you will think that you did not see the most of the city
Have a nice vacation. enjoy the sun and sea in May beside the historical places

As a final remark:May is the probably most beautiful season to be in Turkey. It is enough warm to enjoy sea and sun but not too hot to suffocate
