Fethiye – Land of Plenty
Shane visits Fethiye – It has always been one of Turkey’s most fertile and ecologically diverse regions. Today, it’s ground-zero for every English tourist seeking to escape the British climate. Shane wants to see what’s going on beyond the beach bars and the bikini-clad tourists who flock to this impossibly picturesque seashore.
