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.
