Reasons for trip

We took a trip organised by Thomas Cook through Diane Travel to take in the Waterfall, River & the Bazar. Quite inexpensive at £30 per head for all transport, a guide & the attractions below:

The boat for the Manavgat River trip couldn't be described as luxury, but it served its purpose. A nice gentle cruise down the river shows you the local area & you can also see a quite impressive Mosque. We had a simple but pleasant lunch on board & stopped at a sand back between the river & the sea to swim or sunbathe etc. They seem to have a thing for pirate ships on the river, plenty of them flamboyantly decorated keeping families entertained. The waterfall is located 3 km from the village of Manavgat. Not necessarily what you have in mind when you visit a waterfall, in that it is a wide waterfall but with a modest drop. The small cascade on Manavgat Creek is 2 m high and 40 m wide. Although waterfalls are not high, the current is very powerful and the streams are full of trout. Having said that it is very picturesque & a good place to exercise your camera. Next to the waterfalls, shady tea gardens, fish restaurant, a cafeteria, recreational sites and souvenir shops make the falls a pleasant, cool resting spot, after a day of sighseeing.

The indoor textile market we visited was pretty poor, but they sold nice ice creams. The open Bazar in town, however, was much better. A vast array of stalls, with a bargain to be had if you're prepared to haggle a bit. A nice cafe to finish the day off before an easy coach ride back to the hotel.
