City Council, why is the information on wills not correct, there is no point in having any sort of will in Turkey if you want to leave your Turkish property and money to any one out side of the Turkish Forced heirship regulations, you really need to correct the information people are charge hundreds of euros to make a will that the courts just ignore


Forum Legend
Welcome to the forum,one thing Ive noticed while in Kusadasi 2 weeks ago is the new dolmus services which are very good but now dont display the rates like in the past, so could you please tell me is there a reason for this??



Pedestrian Area

Can you please get the police to keep cars, motor bikes and bicycles out of the pedestrian area. Every day you can see police officers standing next to the signs which tell vehicles to keep out, while cars and bikes go past them. Sometimes the riders and drivers even stop to talk to the police! Today I saw a man on a police bike ride through, he was wearing neither a helmet nor police uniform.
I often see cars goıng through red lights, drıve the wrong way down one way streets or on the wrong side of a dual-carriageway in full view of police officers, who just sit and watch and do nothing.
Please get the police first to obey the laws themselves and then enforce them for others.
Welcome to the forum City council

I am a regular visitor and council taxpayer, and was wondering if Kusadasi had ever considered working with other towns and Cities in the region to encourage route development and increase tourism. Certainly many people on this forum would visit Kusadasi more if there were more direct flights to Izmir and Bodrum from Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales and other European Cities. This would be especially true in the shoulder months and off-season.

Can you please let us know if the number 5 bus will start going from the Palmin to Centrum via Ladies beach again, if you want to go to Ladies Beach or Bird Island now you have to go all through town, We do not know why this bus was stopped as it always had people on it.

I would also like to know what has happened with the Number 5 Dolmuc as I got on it at Green beach asking for the Palmin and was taken all the way into town and back round via several sitesi's I haver never even seen,this took about 30mins + when it should have just been a 2 minute ride,I am now very wary of getting on to the number 5 which always used to pass my Sitesi and would rather pay the extra and get a taxi.
