Kuşadası In the great atlas of Mediterranean antiquity, few cities shone as bright as Ephesus, part of Izmir province and the most culturally significant and best-preserved ancient city in Turkey. And Kuşadası, which dominates the gulf of the same name along this stretch of the Aegean coast, is one of the most vibrant and popular destinations in modern Turkey. It’s been an important port for centuries, hosting a variety of civilizations, and for a time, some of the most infamous pirates of the Mediterranean. The Öküz Mehmet Pasha Caravanserai was built in 1618, confirming Kuşadası’s role as a prominent Ottoman trading center. Sizzling beaches next to sparkling blue water, lively bars and a bustling Grand Bazaar add up to exciting times in this buzzing Turkish city, but above all, it is the chief point of entry to the magnificent ruins of Ephesus. South of Kuşadası, ruins of the ancient Greek city of Miletus are located near the mouth of the legendary Meander River. Khasab With its mountainous fjords and crystal-clear turquoise waters, it’s clear why Khasab is known as the Norway of Arabia. A day of discovery in this Omani jewel will take you from the crenellated turrets of ancient forts to dolphins dancing alongside the dhow cruises—traditional vessels that have navigated the waters for centuries. Delve into the local culture, savor the serenity and witness the seamless blend of natural splendor and rich history that Khasab proudly offers.
