Bodrum is worth to be named as The Country of Eternal Blues by Homeros and another Bodrum resident Cevat Şakir is right to say, Instead of being somewhere else and resting in heavenly light, it is better to live here in this heavenly light.

A great many songs were composed for the sake of Bodrum, anciently called Halikarnassos, which is considered the host of greatest loves in the past, which invites millions of people each year and which had always been a place that could not be shared, a place that had been fought for.

Bodrum, the pearl of the Aegean Sea, almost captivates you with its bright sun, bays, sea, night life, history, architecture, shopping center and urban dynamism.

The whitewashed houses situated on shores of the two harbors, cupolas, shipbuilding yards, sea lover captains, fishermen, purple bougainvilleas wrapping the walls of houses, narrow streets leading to the sea, bright bays and mostly the nights reaching out the sunrise make Bodrum more famous.

Bodrum offers a magnificent atmosphere, where the time passes so fast and the day and night intermingles each other with its colorful sunset redolent with sea salt, warm and starry summer nights, dynamism and colorfulness of its daytime and night life.

You can reach a two-thousand-year past extending from Bodrum, where thousands of domestic and foreign tourists rush each year, to the world-famous city of Ephesus or the unique Apollo Temple in Didim and strange and mysterious Iassus in only a couple of hours.

The sea travel from Bodrum to the southeast, namely, the Gökova Gulf, has been called the “Blue Journey” since this name was given by the Fisherman of Halikarnas and Azra Erhat. The “Blue Journey,” in which the view changes every time and everyday on blue, green and turquoise bays, guarantees the expeditions which can never be seen again.

Everything is different in Bodrum, which offers water sports, perfect shopping possibilities, unforgettable dinners with sea food and holiday facilities, as well as those presented by a unique cultural and historical inheritance.

The weather is always sunny and the people are always hospitable here. The most important thing is that these are only experienced and Bodrum is waiting for you.
