Located more than 500 miles south of Istanbul in the southwestern Aegan region of Turkey, Bodrum offers an idyllic getaway along the coast. The port town sits on a peninsula that is flanked by two main bays, and is well known for its lively nightlife. The Bodrum Castle, built in the 15th century, sits high above the harbor, and is a popular stop for tourists. Bodrum holidays are popular for travellers because of the variety of affordable holiday package deals available with flights from airports in the UK.
Erenler Sofrasi: With a name that is derived from the Sufi tradition of welcoming guests, Erenler Sofrasi serves Mediterranean-fusion dishes prepared with fresh and mostly wild-grown vegetables. Cooking classes are available, which include shopping for ingredients at the local market before preparing a three-course lunch.
Aegean Gate Hotel: Nestled in the quieter Kumbuche region, the Aegean Gate Hotel is only a short distance to the excitement of the downtown area of Bodrum. The hotel offers views across the Aegean Sea to the Greek Isle of Kos, and is the perfect spot to relax. Rooms start at €90 for double occupancy, and a two-night minimum is required.
Bodrum Market: Though there are plenty of shops lining the streets in the downtown center, the Bodrum's weekly farmer's markets are a fun way to experience the local culture and a great place to find unique gifts. On Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, you'll find local vendors selling handmade goods, produce, and traditional foods.
