Cheap flights to Bodrum
It might be Turkey’s busiest travel resort, but this hasn’t stopped Bodrum from being the most beautiful town on its Aegean coast. Located on a peninsula in the southern region of Turkey’s west coast, the elegant town of Bodrum has always been a player on the tourism world stage. After all, it is home to the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Don’t get too excited though; today it’s more a case of wonder where it’s gone, with only a few fragments remaining. Bodrum has crusader castles, ancient ruins, beautiful turquoise coastline, and whitewashed buildings set amongst rolling greenery.
Zaida stocks an amazing range of brightly coloured silk clothing, footwear and home furnishings from Uzbekistan, the heart of the legendary Silk Road. It's located near the marina at 102 Neyzen Tevfik Caddesi.
Don't miss the Bodrum Cup, a thrilling race between the wooden sailing yachts, called gulets, that ply the waters around the Gulf of Gokava. This year's action takes place between 22-27 October.
Market day comes twice a week in Bodrum. Ask for directions to the "pazar" and hone your haggling skills. On Tuesdays snag some bargain clothing, textiles or accessories. Friday is the day to buy deliciously fresh fruit and vegetables.
