There is a difficult balancing act for holiday guidebooks between heavy, comprehensive ones and briefer, lighter ones. This Thomas Cook guidebook manages to cover all of the main topics (resorts, excursions, lifestyle, practical information, maps and even useful phrases) in a genuinely pocket-sized, slim volume.

It is in colour throughout, and features small, but clear, print. The main resorts are well-covered (10 pages each for Antalya and Alanya, 7 for Side) and the guide is a genuine bargain at the Amazon advertised price.

Recommended without reservation.

n.b. If you are also looking for a more comprehensive guide to Turkey, you should consider Turkey Insight Guide (Insight Guides), which is extremely handsomely produced.

Great little book, ideal for someone going on a week or two week holiday.
Doesn't go into a huge amount of detail, but does just what it's supposed to, giving a little information about the area, what there is to do, food, traditions etc.

Just right!!

I haven't used this guide yet, but it looks useful. Resorts from Kas to Gasipasa on the Mediterranean are covered, giving things to see and do at each place, plus a little history and small street maps of Alanya, Antalya and Side.

You'll always find there's not much about the place you are stuck in with a travel guide book, but I think what there was was useful and well written.

We had a good time in Turkey and this book gave us a reasonable set of clues and pointers to getting around and finding what else there was, apart from a beach, in Alanya.

It did not cover the part of the coast I was interested in so was a complete waste. Only covers part of Mediterranean coast so not a good guide.

If your an independent traveller it doesn't give you enough info to get by. Very vague, poor details, few maps.
