For more than a decade, Fethiye Times has been full of reasons why the beautiful Fethiye region should be on your list of places to visit and people who will be coming because they know and love the town, as well as everyone already here, will tell you that this year is no different.

There are so many reasons why people should come to Fethiye we’ve had to divide this article into (at least) two parts.

As usual with our Top Five stories, they’re in no particular order and if you would like to add to them, please let us know.
