“When you reach the top of the hill, you will see Bodrum. Don’t assume that you will leave as you came. Others before you were the same too. As they departed, they all left their souls behind.”
– Cevat Şakir Kabaağaçlı

Glamorous, seductive Bodrum in southwest Turkey is popular with visitors for a reason. Its splendid blue coastline, exquisite beaches, and bougainvillea-lined streets lull you into a vacation state of mind. Equally appealing to the yachting jet-set as the beach-crazy city breaker, there’s a reason they call this stretch of coastline the Turkish Riviera. Whitewashed houses and cobblestone streets wend down to turquoise bays, stylish restaurants and clubs twinkle in the evening glow, and the sea is constantly calling. Whether you are here to relax or party, to see or be seen, Bodrum will have something for you.

Though Bodrum is dominated by sea, sun, and beach, it is also dotted with ancient sites that nod to its long history. In Bodrum, you can find a wonder of the ancient world and a skyline-dominating 15th-century castle, while some Greek islands are so close that you can see them from the mainland. And don’t feel limited by that mainland. Bodrum is one of the most popular jumping-off points for Blue Cruises, the gulet ships that ferry visitors up and down the splendid coastline and secret bays of Bodrum. You can never get too far from that fabulous blue water, after all.
