Bodrum Airport - Turkey 23/06/2004

cold chips and warm coke

Bodrum Airport - Turkey we arrived at bodrum airport at 4am on may 4th, tired but happy to be on holiday, due to various delays 3 planes had arrived near enough at the same time so the wait to get through immigration took well over 1 hour. you have to pay £10 each person to enter Turkey and are required to pay with stirling in £10 notes. I did see some couples paying with £20 notes although the guide books state you can only use £10 notes and i would suggest you comply with that advice, the Turkish immigration officers are not the friendliest i have ever seen. Due to the time it took to get through to baggage i thought that our bags would be on the carousel but as no bags were being taken off the carousel then no other bags were being put on, this meant we had another hour wait. 2 weeks later we had to check into Bodrum airport for the flight home. we checked our bags in and went through to departures, we had to put our hand luggage through the x-ray machine, no tray was provided and your belongings go along on open metal rollers, we were rushed through and lost a hat so i would recomend you take a carrier bag to put your sunglasses, hats & jackets in to put them through the x-ray. The cafe in departures is expensive, they charged £2.50 for a portion of chips, £2 for coke etc(warm coke &cold chips!) In the shops the turkish delight was twice the price it is in Bodrum and the shops don't sell much that's worth getting excited about although the duty free is reasonable. Tobbaco is hard to find ...
