Ancient Hallicarnassus, city of the great Mausoleum, one the seven wonders of antiquity, the famous castel, amphtheatre and very uniqe marine museum, is today modern Bodrum, a relaxing  a party town with a magnificent mountain surrounding, that is full of great markets and home to stunning sunsets. The sand is warm as well as the water, and this popular destination has to be seen to be believed. The best  place for scuba diveres, the  place at Karaada, rigth acros to Bodrum.

Bodrum is located on a  penninsula if you have a car (or rent one) and make a loop c'lock vise tour around  it, starting  at Gümbet, and go  Bites, Akyarlar,Turgutreis, Gümüşlük, Yalıkavak, Gündoğan, Türkbükü,Torba and back to Bodrum. The trip will take about 2-4 hours depending on what you would like to see and where you would like to spend more time.

Bodrum is the place where the famous Blue Voyage starts and  ends  in Antalya. We call it  "Mavi Yolculuk" that I had made in 1968. The trip usually takes  15-20 days and you will see lots of historical  sites/places like;  Gökova Bay, Knidos, Datça,  Marmaris,  Dalyan (Chaunos), Fethiye (Ölü Deniz, Turkish Dead Sea),  Kaş, Kalkan, Kekova, Demre  (Birth Place of Santa Clous), Finike, Olympus, Phaselis,  Kemer and Antalya.. This is the best part of Turkey.  In Bodrum there are  three big marinas and lots of hotels and an airport nearby.
