Bodrum City — 6 nights

More than a million tourists visit Bodrum City each year, drawn by its sandy beaches and luxury hotels.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bitez Beach and Yahsi Beach. Escape the urban bustle at Bayside and Tora Boat Tours and Camel Beach. Step out of Bodrum City to go to Gumusluk and see Myndos, which is approximately 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Castle of St. Peter, admire the masterpieces at Zeki Muren Arts Museum, get active on the water at My Way Boat Trip, and go for a stroll along the water at Yalikavak Marina.

St.-Tropez of Turkey
Elegant Bodrum is a district and port city, watched over by its 15th-century seaside castle and is home to the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Formerly a simple fishing village, the town flourished after writer Kabaağaçlı put the city on the map: exiled here in 1925, he adopted the pen name, "The Fisherman of Halicarnassus"--an allusion to the city's name in aniquity. Today this seaside vacation spot charms visitors with a glittering marina, flower-filled cafes, palm-lined promenades, and a host of seafood restaurants. The serene simplicity that caught Kabaağaçlı's eye has since attracted other artists, giving Bodrum a sophistication that sets it apart from other coastal towns.
