Bodrum City

St.-Tropez of Turkey

More than a million tourists visit Bodrum City each year, drawn by its sandy beaches and luxury hotels. Originally called Halicarnassus, in ancient times the city contained a massive Greek mausoleum considered one of the "Seven Wonders of the Ancient World." In the 1980s, Bodrum became a cool seaside getaway for the world's well-heeled pleasure seekers. Today, this busy resort town attracts mostly package tourists, who come here to soak up the sun and sand and to partake in the lively nightlife. A city rich in history and culture, Bodrum also boasts a well-preserved medieval castle and the ruins of an ancient Roman amphitheater. Bodrum City is in Bodrum.

Where to stay in Bodrum City

The expansive area of Bodrum City and its seaside coast offer much in the way of accommodations--at any price point. The city's main attraction, the castle, seems to yield budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses in the immediate area; expect dense crowds enjoying the animated nightlife here. An array of four-star hotels and resorts hug the curves of the coastline and continue farther west of the city core. If you prefer more luxurious lodging, seek out the handful of five-star resorts located slightly inland and a little bit southeast of the city core.
