莲子99The iconic buildings and representative landmarks of the ancient city of Ephesus are printed on the ticket as a pattern. The ending is a bit like Macau's Big Three Bus, but only the front facade is left. The composition is very beautiful, and you can walk through to see the ruined walls behind.
乖小咪The House of the Virgin Mary is a Christian holy place in Selcuk. It is the Virgin Mary who lived here for more than ten years after the death of Jesus. In the former residence, there are scenes of life that are said to be in front of the Virgin, which is very simple, but very sacred. If you are a Christian, you must come and worship here.
LikeGorIf you are tired of the bustling city of Istanbul when you come to Turkey, Cesme is a good choice. Ilica Beach here is one of the highlights of Cesme. The blue sea sets off the urban leisure area, which is worth a visit.
sculptorEphesus was an ancient city on the Ionian coast of ancient Greece built in the 10th century BC. It fell under the control of the Roman Republic in 129 BC. The city was then known for its nearby temple of Artemis, which was designated as one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, and was partially destroyed by the earthquake in 614 AD. Today, the Ephesus site is the most popular international and local tourist attraction.
莲子99The remnants of this place are really pitiful, so no tickets were collected. There were only two vendors selling postcards at the door. There were no tourists walking in, only a huge pillar and faintly visible foundation.

This is a serious resort on the coast of Aegean Sea but this time in #turkey and exactly at the small town of Selcuk. Plenty of tourists spends their summer vacation in this region. The whole area on the Aegean sea of Turkey is famous with its so-called all-inclusive tourism. I managed to spent my New year's Eve here so my stay was out of season but it was still amazing.
#izmir is one of the largest cities on #turkey and it is located at the asian side of the country. During the summer is busy tourist destination with so many luxurious resorts around. The town itself is very lively also during the cold winter season. The month of my visit was January and it also was good.
