Although more than a million tourists flock to its beaches, boutique hotels, trendy res- taurants and clubs each summer, Bodrum (ancient Halicarnassus) never seems to lose its cool. …
Bodrum is OK but it was the least favourite of my stops in Turkey.
The castle and museum are over-priced and not particularly well maintained. This strikes me as a tourist trap with far too many tourists for the available space. Rats crowded into a small cage.
The very interesting Theatre of Halicarnassus is locked up. It should be a major attraction.
My favourite place in Bodrum … Starbucks.
