Bodrum interesting facts for Tourists
Bodrum is a lively ‘international' resort with many quality shops and restaurants. Thousands of boats moor in the marina and boat trips of all types (including some to nearby Greek islands) can be taken. There are many historical attractions in and around the town including the old castle and mausoleum. For a great day out for the whole family, visit the Dedeman Aquapark at Ortakent, Bodrum.

The Bodrum Peninsula is situated on the South-West coast of Turkey. The coastline of the Peninsula, famed for its crystal clear waters, is 174 kms long with both large and small tranquil inlets, and surrounded by many islands of varying size. The coast is speckled with a wide variety of lovely and individual villages. All can enjoy the spectacular views, and swimmers and snorkellers will enjoy the clean, deep blue waters. The quiet beaches, the windsurfers bays and wild rocky cliffs are all nature's blessing on the Peninsular.

Bodrum, known in ancient times as Halicarnassus, is now a lively holiday resort but both nature and history stand side by side with one another on the peninsular. St. Peter's Castle, built by the Knights of St John in the early 15th century, dominates the harbour and Bodrum is famous for being the historical site of one of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World, namely the Halicarnassus Mausoleum. Bodrum also houses the Museum of Underwater Archaeology as well as an impressive amphitheatre.

Bodrum holds an appeal for everyone - sponge divers, sailors, fishermen - as well as those who just wish to take in the white washed houses and windmills with purple flowering bougainvillaea climbing the walls. For tourists and locals alike, inexpensive shopping centres and bijou boutiques beckon with their unique and tasteful merchandise as do the traditional markets where fresh fruit and vegetables from the villages abound alongside traditional and local goods.

Bodrum is also famous for its nightlife. During the day people enjoy the carefree pleasure of exploring the local sun-kissed beaches but also choose to take in the lively atmosphere at night.

Bodrum is well-known for its night clubs which present exotic floor-shows with noted artists. The world famous open-air Halicarnassus Disco in the bay is the biggest and purportedly the best in Europe with its laser shows, light and sound systems, and floor-shows. However, for a more sedate evening you might wish to take in a concert at the historic castle or amphitheatre or just enjoy a meal at one of Bodrum's many fine restaurants overlooking the harbour and the sun going down.

Then, of course, there are the many other villages and towns to explore on the peninsular each with their own unique atmosphere and offerings. One thing that does remain constant throughout the peninsular is the laid back attitude and sense of freedom that visitors remark upon. This coupled with the unimposing but friendly and hospitable nature of the local inhabitants towards tourists makes people want to come back to this part of Turkey time and time again.
