Things to do in holiday to Bodrum City, Turkey

Those who travel to Bodrum with a desire to sightsee will be glad they made that decision. The ruins of the Mausoleum of Mausolus, for starters, are found here. 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. These are among the several establishments in Bodrum that promise a good time and excellent Turkish cuisine.

Places to visit on holiday to Bodrum City, Turkey

Overlooking the marina and harbour is the majestic Bodrum Castle which was constructed by the crusaders in the 15th century. There is plenty of history behind this structure which started out as the Castle of St. Peter in 1402. It was designed by a German knight-architect and built with materials from the Mausoleum of Mausolus. The castle now serves as a museum in which the remains of several shipwrecks can now be found. A trip to the Bodrum Amphitheatre is also an integral part of the Bodrum experience. This structure was built during the reign of Mausolus and is quite well preserved.

                                                        Great villa, far enough out of the hustle and bustle of Bodrum but close enough to walk if you're feeling energetic or a short reasonable taxi ride.

                                                        Lovely apartment in peaceful location close to Bodrum Marina

                                                        4 of 5
                                                        I would like to start by saying the communication with the owner Ergun before booking was excellent. Ergun answered all inquiries in a very timely manner and provided all details requested. The location of the apartment was very good and only took a few minutes to walk to Bodrum Marina where you will find a vast selection of bars and restaurants.There was a taxi station which took only a minute to walk to and also a selection of shops including a mini Carrefour supermarket. The apartment was newly refurbished and was clean and well maintained and also very secure. On arrival there was a bottle of wine and also bottles of water which was appreciated as I arrived late at night. The bed linen and towels were provided and along with everything else in the apartment these were new. There is a washing machine in the apartment which is handy but there is nowhere to dry your washing, so I think it would be better if a clothes airer was provided and maybe also an iron. As this is a self catering apartment I also think cleaning equipment should be provided, for example a brush or vacuum cleaner and mop/bucket. There is a lovely swimming pool on the complex which was always empty but there are no sunbeds as this is a residential complex, so maybe these could also be provided. There is air conditioning in both the living area and bedroom and wifi is also available. There is a caretaker on site, however, he does not speak English which was difficult when I needed to ask for anything and I had to ask my Turkish friends to communicate on my behalf (although the owner Ergun does speak English and was available to contact via telephone if need be). My only concern was that when I left I was asked to pay for the electricity I had used which was not mentioned in the listing description, however, the the owner was contacted by the caretaker and after a conversation with him this was resolved. Overall, this is a lovely apartment in a good location and I would definitely recommend it.
