BOAT TRIP IN DALYAN

Dalyan is about a 45 minute run from Dalaman, we come to this pretty riverside town quite often for lunch, but today we’ve decided to go on one of the boat trips.

Off on a run to Dalyan

Its a pleasant run on the bike, theres always very little traffic on the roads between towns in Turkey, probably due to the horrendous cost of fuel here.

Our boat for a couple of hours, think we paid about 15 Pounds for the trip.

This is where Bogart filmed African Queen/Dalyan

Interestingly, this is where the film African Queen was made.

The rock Tombs from the boat

The town and the river are overlooked by ancient tombs carved in to the rock face.

After the boat trip we had a little wonder around quayside and then a spot of lunch.

The tombs are lit at night and again we often come here in the evenings for drinks and something to eat.
