It is impossible to return from your holiday in Kas, without seeing Lion’s Sarcophagus extant from Antiphellos Ancient City till today. The reason behind using the word “impossible” is the location of the sarcophagus. It is located at the very beginning of the Long Market’s slope, which is a very central and intensely crowded spot of Kas.  Anybody who comes to Kas visits Long Market for sure. When walking through long market it is a must to see the Lion’s Sarcophagus.

Lion’s Sarcophagus is one of the icons of Kas. That’s right. If you enjoy shopping, you will recognize that almost all the souvenir shops in Kas include an object that visualizes lion’s sarcophagus. If you want to get a gift to your friends that describes Kas at most we may suggest you buy one of these small creative work of art pieces.

For those who are constantly holidaying in Kas and those living in Kas, sitting down on the paving stones under the sarcophagus has become almost a tasty social activity. To be in history, to talk by history and while making a spiritual journey to thousands of years ago, still breathing in present… You cannot understand totally without breathing in this air around. You should not come back from Kas without wandering around and be touching the Lion’s Sarcophagus, which is believed to have been at least 2400 years old. With all its grandeur it takes you on a journey to the past. In any case, if you still could not find it, or the person you asked could not recognize the Lions Sarcophagus; then ask as, “King’s Tomb”. Because it is also known as “The King’s Tomb” :))

Reasons for Preferring a Daily Vacation Rental House

Travelers now prefer to rent a daily vacation rental house for their holidays rather than a hotel room. How and why did this daily rental system spread all over the world?

The number of property owners all over the world is increasing day by day. Property owners tend to rent their vacation home daily rather than long-term for obtaining financial income during the periods when they are absent. As the property owner vacates certain periods of the year, it was a great solution to be able to earn financial income without a constant tenant who occupies the property whole year. This has created a new global market that is growing rapidly.

The daily vacation rental market in America and Europe also grew like topsy. Since the business of renting a daily vacation rental house was a new market, legal applications were not enough for law enforcement. Many countries in the world have rearranged their laws and regulations to meet the needs of the daily vacation rental market. The first steps in the creation of the legal framework are also taken in Turkey by issuing some advanced rulings and circulars about daily rentals.

Of course, if there was no interest in renting a daily vacation home, this market would not have the chance to grow that much. Why do people prefer to rent a daily holiday home instead of a hotel or pension? In this article, we summarized the reasons why you would prefer to rent a daily vacation home.

From Sleeping Giant to Cukurbag Village!

It’s a happy Sunday and FidoRento team who likes to walk, and share is on their way to the Sleeping Giant! Looks like it is inevitable for us to add a new blog post almost every passing day. Let’s start telling the route that follows as; Kas> Sleeping Giant> Cukurbag Village which is the most pleasant walking route of Kas and conveying our experiences during this walk.

When Starting

Firstly, you should take necessary goods and equipment’s with you that needs to be taken for all similar trekking routes. The best time for the Sleeping Giant route is spring, but if you want to walk in the summer, you may need to get more water. Because you may get tired when you reach the peak of Sleeping Giant. Depending to the peak height, the slope is slightly higher than the medium-difficulty tracks. Therefore, it is useful to have your batons (walking stick) with you. Batons will also be very helpful downwards the slope when you are turning back. If you do not want to descend from the Sleeping Giant before watching the sunset as we did than please do not forget to bring your headlight too. Because after the sun set, it’s hard to find your way and see where you are stepping. Since the slope is steep, you need to see the ground you are stepping on. Read more..
