Based on previous sub-optimal experiences, we agreed that during our holiday we will not enroll to any sort of organized trip or sightseeing. Our main aim was to relax as much as possible. In order not to be completely ignorant culturally, we wanted to see the nearby city of Side. We hopped on the bus which took us to the city. In the 40 degree heat we had very little intention of sightseeing, I had a quick look at the ruins of the Apollo Temple, and that was more than enough. The old town was one big market, selling tons of obviously fake Dolce Gabbana shirts and Louis Vuitton handbags, none of which we were interested in. After an hour we quickly got on another bus and fled back to the hotel, jumping into the pool as quickly as possible.
