Manavgat is about a thirty minute drive east of Antalya. It is a very pretty town (one I would not mind living in for a couple of years). My Turkish friend took me to Manavgat to visit the famous Manavgat Falls.
Unfortunately, southern Turkey was experiencing some major floods so the falls was covered by the flood waters. Despite the floods, the weather was nice and warm and I was able tovisit a school and mosque before continuing to Alanya.
Flooding in Manavgat – This is where the falls should be located. Interesting enough, right next to the Manavgat Falls is a small Uzbek Cafe. It was closed so we could not eat there.
Downtown Manavgat is very pretty. On some of the streets, there are actually orange trees growing right next to the buildings.
