To find out why so many people keep choosing Eastern Mediterranean Coast as a place to vacation, ensure you take the time to fully explore the region. Places in the vicinity of Antakya are Tulek, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast, and Ulucinar, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southeast.
Eastern Mediterranean Coast is a good destination for those with a penchant for open-air museums. If the weather isn't ideal, fear not, Eastern Mediterranean Coast offers a number of popular art museums and history museums, guaranteed to keep you and your family entertained.
De-stress the way the locals do in this area. Go shore fishing and beach combing while you are in the area. If the weather is fine while you are here, get out and enjoy the water activities. Boating and fishing are just two of the well-established watersports here.
One of the delights of travel is learning local languages, so be sure to try out a little Turkish during your time in Eastern Mediterranean Coast. "Benimle dans eder misiniz?" ("Would you like to dance with me?") is handy. You'll find that knowing "Nerelisin?", which means "Where are you from?", can really make you look good.
At the end of your stay in Antakya, pack up your camera and mementos, spend your last of your liras, and bid Hoşçakal (farewell) to this special place.
