Depending on the length of your vacation and the season, you can put your things together on your packing list. If you stay in a hotel, then festive outfits for evening entertainment or visits to the bar are also included. In summer you will definitely wear fresh laundry and light clothing every day in Marmaris Turkey. Summer dresses, blouses, tops and T-shirts should be on your packing list as well as shorts, skirts or light leggings for underneath. A pair of jeans and a warm jacket for cooler nights should not be missing.
Protect your head from the intense sun with a covering so that you can enjoy the beach as well as the city stroll or the shopping tour extensively. Several bikini or swimsuits allow you to let your wet swimwear dry and still enjoy the sun. Out of respect for the religion in Marmaris Turkey you will always swim clothed and also sunbathe.
For the vacation trip to Marmaris Turkey you need a valid passport. Also think of appropriate children’s IDs if you are going to travel with children. Travel literature, travel games and other entertainment items help everyone to relax. Since the authorities sometimes need a few weeks to issue the passports, make the applications well in advance of your vacation. The booking confirmation and travel documents inform you about departure times, flight numbers and also the check-in formalities.
Often it is possible to check in your luggage the day before, so you don’t have to wait in line when you take off. Ask your health insurance provider whether they will send you additional documents for an emergency in Marmaris Turkey and in any case take out foreign health insurance. You then supplement these documents with your identity card, your health insurance card and, if available, EC or credit card.
If you are a backpacker, panniers will help you keep things tidy. You can stow away underwear, T-shirts and everything else in a space-saving manner and do not always have to take all the individual parts out of your backpack in search of THE piece. If you pack your suitcase for your Marmaris Turkey vacation, then compression bags are a great relief.
When they are packed, they are deprived of air and then a lot of these bags fit in your suitcase. In your hand luggage you have your mobile phone, the charger, your documents and travel documents, your money and your papers. You can also carry liquids with you if you put them in resealable 1 liter plastic bags. Duty-free purchased liquids can be carried with the receipt and sealed.
You are well equipped with light footwear for travel and time on the beach and a pair of suitable shoes for evening outfits. If you also explore the natural and antique beauties, then you also need sturdy shoes. On the hotel’s own beaches and the well-known city beaches you will usually find enough loungers with cushions. Since it can get very hot in summer, the best way to protect your feet is with flip-flops.
In the tourist strongholds you will almost always get English daily newspapers. If you subscribe to a newspaper or magazine at home, you can also arrange for it to be forwarded to you on vacation.
For safety reasons, write two beach towels on your packing list, then you can always hang one to dry. Quick-drying travel towels are light and practical for every vacation.
1. inflatable toy / boat
2. inflatable lounger / sofa
3. Bathing shoes on stone beaches Fins
4. Swimming goggles / snorkel / mask
5. Water wings
7. Beach shell
8. Beach safe / money hideaway
9. Beach towels (my favorite)
Our cell phone now replaces the alarm clock, the radio, the television … but if the battery is empty, nothing works anymore. Put the charging cable of your mobile phone in your hand luggage. Take your headphones with you so that you can listen to your music on the beach or while hiking. If you are traveling with children, the baby monitor is a great help. You have your darling under supervision and can still sit together with friends in the evening. You can easily use all your electrical devices in Marmaris Turkey, because the same sockets are used there as we do.
It is prohibited to import weapons, cutting tools and narcotics into Marmaris Turkey..
So-called “cultural and natural assets” may not be exported without the appropriate permission. These include antiques, old coins but also supposedly worthless things like stones, fossils or the like. The authorities also interpret very precisely what this includes. Violators face high prison terms and fines.
When exchanging money, care must be taken to keep the receipt until you leave, as it must be presented in advance when changing to euros. In addition, a maximum of $ 5,000 worth of cash may be exported without prior notice.
Souvenirs and other goods brought from Turkey must not exceed certain quantities and amounts. It also depends on how you enter and leave. For air and ship travel the maximum value is 430 euros. In any case, receipts and invoices should also be kept here in order to be able to prove the value of the goods in case of doubt. In order to avoid misunderstandings and penalties, it is advisable to report valuable items such as laptops, digital cameras, and the like to customs before starting your trip.
I have summarized Turkey’s entry and customs regulations in a separate article.
Recommended: Copy your passport and put it in a transparent film! Keep the copy in a different place in your luggage than your passport!
Turkish airlines have very generous baggage regulations. For summer flights with Turkish Airlines, 30kg checked baggage is included in the normal tariff.
In addition to checked baggage, Turkish airlines allow at least 8kg of hand baggage. This also applies to cheap charter airlines such as SunExpress.
For a summer vacation or a city break in Turkey:
Charging cables, beach entertainment, photography and more
Little things that are sometimes incredibly useful!
Good preparation for the “small bruises”
I wrote my own article about the contents of a Marmaris first-aid kit, you can find a lot more in it there.
Basically, you do not have to give any special medication to the travel pharmacy for Turkey, since there is no malaria and diarrhea is rare.
Useful: I recommend foreign health insurance for Turkey, since many services of private clinics are not covered by the statutory health insurance companies.
So that the “little ones” start their vacation perfectly equipped…
