Kusadasi, meaning “Bird’s Island”, is a world-famous resort and one of the most popular cruise ship ports in all of Turkey. 

It is neither an island nor are there birds as there used to be but, every summer, thousands of tourists migrate here in their stead. Kusadasi is located on the west coast in the Aegean Region, attracting many visitors with its spectacular Byzantine and Ottoman ruins as well as its beautiful beaches and traditional shops.

Leuke zoektocht om Kusadasi te leren kennen. Er zit wel 1 foutje in het spel waarbij een routebeschrijving 2x voorkomt en we hierdoor de vissen met parachutes niet gevonden hebben.
