ErdekSouthern Marmara Region, Turkey.
Erdek was one of the most favoured domestic tourism destinations in Turkey up until 1980s, when more and more people started to "discover" Mediterranean and Southern Aegean coasts, further afield from major population centres of the country. However, Erdek is still quite one of the major domestic summer resorts, especially for mid-class families.
