General Discussion / Turkey still in Red for Travel
« Last post by NormskiD on August 27, 2021, 02:20:16 PM »
I cannot really understand why Turkey is still in the red zone for travel. 75% of the population have had their first vaccination & cases per 100,000 are lower than here. Another nail in the heart of hard working Turkish people in tourism. We only hope this will be resolved for next year and we are once again able to travel to this wonderful country.

This is why the chopping down of olive groves etc to build illegal villa over the other side of the hill is wrong. Bulldoze them up BURN them. Get some plastic greenhouses up. Apply for electric and water hook up then when they have the certificate to grow tomatoes move them and build some villas with bloody great pools. No sewer waste pipes just runoff. Less water in reserve to fight fires. People buying these places without planning permission. Mad.

Totally agree Ray, you do worry about the infrastructure when emergencies happen. Sadly the Turkish authorities don't seem to be up on these things. Lets hope the fires don't spread I believe Bodrum is now under threat, though it is a fair way from Kalkan.

True. It must worry people in Kalkan as the limited amount of water pumped to the area from saklikent. After the fires in the hills around islamar were shown to have difficulty in getter water to the fires. It does make me think that if a fire got out of control low down on the big hill how quickly it could spread with the updraught with the hill being so densely built on. All restaurants and cafes are such simple places where fires can start. I wonder if anyone is now considering risk assessments on what to do in the event of a fire. You only have to remember how quickly the fire in the harbour a few years ago took over before it was brought under control. Perhaps a pumping station from the sea with hook up places should be considered to places or risk. It’s clear building is not going to slow down but this should be done in conjunction with fire control and risk.

Awful scenes on FB etc of the terrible fires in southern Turkey, animals burnt to death and property destroyed. Hope the Turkish people can stay safe. As the world has not got enough to contend with at the moment.

Hi Kevin. Lots of restaurants open now. We’re hoping for early September and middle October. Fingers crossed they let us in.

Good to see some activity on the forum again!

We have re-re-re-booked Kalkan for late September this year, fingers crossed that everything will be safe and we are able to travel.

The Kalkan webcams suggest that there are visitors to Kalkan, anyone know which restaurants and bars are open?

It seems Kalkan is bursting with visitors from Russia, Germany and of course Turkish. Just hope they are following all the rules :( also lots of sales of villas.
