The city of Xanthos, with its Roman theatre and Acropolis, the Letoon theatre, the rock tombs, and the Antiphellos theatre are just a few of the remarkable sights offered to visitors. Kekora is especially remarkable since it was destroyed by an earthquake many years ago and drowned, only partially visible beneath the water. The intriguing archaeological site of Kaunos, located near the tourist town of Dalyan, has an acropolis as well as a 2000-year-old, well maintained theatre that is still used for concerts today.

Throughout the region, particularly in the busy main cities, you'll find a variety of unique and traditional businesses and markets. Many beautiful souvenirs are available in the busier resorts, and you may discover designer garments and purses, as well as local goods and crafts like as amazing spices and finely woven carpets and rugs, if you browse about the stores and bazaars.
