Mousoleum, which is one of the world’s seven wonders and the Castle dating back to13th century take place at the centrum. There are too many historical and touristic areas in the city and its surroundings. The blue journeys that are made to Gökova gulf in which the most beautiful bays of the country take place start from the port. The ferry boat excursions are regularly realized to Greece’s Kos island every day and the trip takes 1 hour.

City’s economical conditions: is a town in which agriculture-based fruits and vegatables are sold very cheaply and it has the cheapest prices in terms of sales prices of textile products when compared to European countries. For examples: t-shirt is 2.50 Euros, one kilogram of apple, pear, grapes or orange is 1 Euro, one chicken doner is 1 Euro, and one Burger king menu is 4 Euros.
