Dalaman is a district as well as the central town of that district located on the southwestern coast of Turkey in the Province of Muğla. The Dalaman River - Turkish: Dalaman çayı forms much of the western border of the district, where its neighbors are the Köyceğiz and Ortaca districts. The town of Dalaman is located in the coastal plain whereas the rest of the district towards the Fethiye district on the coast and towards the high mountains on the northern border towards Denizli Province – is upland, dominated by the valleys of the Dalaman River eastern tributaries. Dalaman is known for its international airport which serves as a gateway to the tourists who visit this part of Turkey every year who are heading to seaside resorts to the west and east of Dalaman such as Marmaris, Fethiye, Köyceğiz, Dalyan, Ölüdeniz and Hisarönü. Dalaman Airport is small has expanded and currently has both domestic and international terminals and is served by many airlines. Turkish Airlines offer daily flights to Turkey's commercial and financial capital Istanbul and serves as a seasonal base for other airlines notably Thomas Cook, Onur Air, Pegasus Airlines and Free Bird Airlines among others. Apart from aviation activities, Dalaman plays host to one of Turkey's biggest open prisons where less dangerous prisoners are sent as part of their rehabilitation programme. A state farm is present in Dalaman where agriculture, particularly citrus fruits, plays an important role in the local economy, since it is situated in a fertile plain at sea level. In 1906 the Alexandria train station was built by mistake in Dalaman. The building still exists and serves today as the headquarters of the state farm. The year before the construction in 1905, Abbas Hilmi Pasha - then Khedive of Egypt, had acquired a large part of the fertile plain and had decided to set up a hunting lodge in the region. He had ordered the plans and materials for his projected residence from his architects in France, at the same as the plans and the material for a train station for Alexandria in Egypt. Unfortunately, the two simultaneous shipments were misdirected - the materials for his residence heading towards Egypt - and the Alexandria train station ending up in Dalaman. Since it would be too costly to re-ship everything to their correct destination the station was built in Dalaman anyway with even a few miles of purposeless railway track extending from it.
