We have heard all about these Turkish baths and how wonderful they are, so where is the best place to go for one. Lisa has insisted that this is what she wants to do as soon as we get there so can you tell us which one you recommend.
Turkish baths are amazing! We went to a great one near bar street, I don't remember the name of it, but it's just up from bar street and there is a huge sign that says "Turkish Baths" on the outside, so you can't miss it! It was very private and you could go in with as many people as you wanted. I was nervous at first, but the guy was very gentle, and I think he is with all tourists. Afterwards we were given Apple tea and our photo was taken in our towelling robes!
a tip....dont use the ada saray turkish bath near kustur beach area, they are so rough there it was unbelievable, one guy had to go to bed afterwards, we tried it there and i would never go back, have been to the hamam in selcuk which was fantastic, it is men only except for a wednesday, also the one in the old town was very good
It is fantastic! We went to the very old one. From the sea front road walk up towards the arch (past the jewellery shops). There's a small passage between the shops on your left (about two thirds of the way up) go down there and take your first left ond it's on your right. Don't go if there's a cruiser in or you'll be waiting all day as they give them vouchers to go.
If you've never been for one, then you _have_ to go! Was staying in the Sunworld hotel last year (on the way out from town towards Ladies Beach, at the top of the hill) There's a hotel there where they do them too. Men and women at the same time, but have heard from friends who visited Ankara nad Istanbul that this is a little unusual.
It's impossible to describe fully, it's one of those things that has to be experienced to be believed!
Went on hols with a group of 30 last year, all came back swearing that if Turkish bath opened beside us we'd never leave!
Also, if there's any men going with you, make sure they go for a shave at a barber's! Something the men raved about...
