    Hi Guys,

    I'm planing to go to Antalia (Turkey) for the new year holiday. Can you please give me more info about prices - food, souvenirs, cigarettes, alcohol etc. I'll be at hotel so food and rooms are covered, but I don't know how much money to take for souvenirs, food (outside the hotel) , cigarettes etc
    Thanks in advance.

    When the people there notice that you aren't from turkey, everything is 3 times more expensive for you and this is not a joke

    Thanks gsy159,

    Actually I'm from Bulgaria and I was reading from other BG forums that Bulgarians are satisfied with the prices and experience there. I Just wanted some 'inside' info. Thanks anyway mate. So anyone else to share something?

    As I can remember marlboro red normal was 7,50 Turkish Lira thats about 3?, take a hotel with full pension, so you don't have to buy alcohol or something to eat, thats a lot cheaper then in shops.
    1 Jack Daniels was about 50? i can remember.

    Hi there,
    The prices are not so high in Antalya, Turkey but you have to be careful when you are in the city. The shops will give you overpriced items as soon as they feel that you are a foreigner. Also bargain is the keyword in Turkey.
    Also if you want souvenirs the old city will give you many options. When you look for something to buy, make sure that there is a price tag for the product. Else the seller will give you a different number in price.
    If you want somewhere to eat and drink with a landscape, the best priced place is Castle.
    You have to be careful at nightlife because prices will differ, and there is no limit for the pubs. Try to use bigger stores for buying daily needs. Also you can visit some shopping malls to go out shopping.

    Thanks ulijonroth, appreciate your help. Our hotel pocket includes food and drinks. I will buy mostly souvenirs for friends and family, cigarettes for me and may be 2-3 dinners outside the hotel. I was thinking to spen about 200 eur for these stuff. My holiday will be 5 days from 29.12.2011 to 03.01 2012. If some one of you is from Antalia, I'll be glad to meet you .
