Fethiye is one of the 13 districts of Muğla. The old name of the city is Megri. This name comes from Makri, which means "far away" in Greek. Especially developed in terms of tourism. Fethiye, which is the second largest district after Bodrum in terms of population in Muğla, tries to leave Muğla in terms of population and position and to become a province. But the metropolis law does not allow this.
