Erasta – Fethiye
The new shopping center opened in Fethiye opened this summer.
It is situated next to the Bus Station or “Otogar”. This has the effect of moving the focus away from the traditional center of Fethiye which is based around the Belediye offices and the old Paspatur area.
At first there were quite few empty units but now after about five months the mall has filled up and it is has become a very active and lively area. The shopping mall especially comes alive in the evening and nightime when poeple have finished their work and enjoy taking a stroll and doing some shopping in a relaxed atmosphere.
The shopping outlets include a mixture of clothing, jewelry, electronics and several coffee shops and eateries.
Here is the full list that I made as I walked around the shopping complex.
The are several entertainment ares for the children to spend time. In fact I saw a lot of unattended youngsters in these ares so I think they enjoy coming and hanging out together at this type of place. The entertainments seem to be pretty harmless at the moment: mainly climbing, table football, bowling and mini car driving.
It is good to see that all the entertainment are of a family nature. Both adults and youths can enjoy the bowling and cinema. For tyhe very young there are several play areas which include electric cars, climbing and mini basketball.
So far I have not seen any internet cafes opens. These tend to offer the kids more violence oriented war games, so I hope they are not allowed to move in.
