Mausolus was an ancient ruler who ruled over the Carians, some of the earliest settlers of Bodrum, between 377 and 353 BC. Upon his death Greek architects were brought in to build a monument and a tomb for him. What remains of this once elaborate 46-metre pyramid-like structure has been christened one of the Wonders of the Ancient World. Other than sightseeing, visitors to these parts love taking cruises in the calm Aegean waters as well as indulging in the usual water sports such as swimming, diving and wind surfing. Party animals will want to visit Halikarnus, a humongous outdoor nightclub and those who want a relaxed drink can repair to Kuba, an ambient resto-lounge.
