Day 02: Friday, 15 April 2016
We arrived at Kusadasi around 2:30 pm and checked in the Marina Hotel & Suite and rested the whole afternoon. We had our dinner at the hotel restaurant around 7:30 pm. It was cool when we took a stroll around the hotel at night.
Kuşadası is a beach resort town on Turkey’s western Aegean coast. A jumping-off point for visiting the classical ruins at nearby Ephesus. It is a major cruise ship stop. Its seafront promenade, marina and harbour are lined with hotels and restaurants. Just offshore on Pigeon Island is a walled Byzantine castle that once guarded the town, connected to the mainland via causeway.

Sylvio Leather Outlet, Kusadasi
Before going to the port, we made a brief stop at a leather outlet. We sipped Pomegranate tea while watching a fashion show displaying latest styles and fashions. After browsing a great selection of high end jackets we ended up buying a pair of matching reversible leather jackets.
