What/Why:  
The official camel wrestling season runs from November to March but the best shows are in the Turkey’s Western area of Selcuk the third Sunday of January. What to expect : It’s the camel mating season so their all testied up and looking to score. That said they do perform scissor holds, forms of headlocks and pins. A young female is paraded around – that’s about enough to get the lads fighting but it’s not gorey in fact it’s a very natural fight and a scream or fall counts as a submission. Some locals wager carpets on the outcome of a match. Getting there by plane: Book a flight into Adnan Menderes International Airport here which is 60kms from Selcuk. Getting there by train: Book a train from Izmir Basmane to Selcuk
