Bodrum : Saint Tropez of Turkey ๐Ÿ‘™

Looking for Caribbean sea, a fancy Marina and cheap but tasty food whilst remaining in Europe?

Look no more… Bodrum is the answer!

This beautiful port city started to become popular in the 1970’sย and it has grown into aย  cosmopolitan tourist resort without losing its exotic Turkish aura.

We were extremely lucky and got a great deal in a top dream holiday resort, however Bodrum offers a variety of accommodations for any budget, from a fancy resort like ours to a simpler B&B near the seaside.

After spending the day sunbathing and soaking in the crystal blue waters it’s time to wear a light dress and sandals to hit the historical centre.
A local bus, which runs every 20 minutes till night, stops in front of almost every resort and leaves you at the central bus station.

The cost is around 3 Euros return.

You will be immediately surrounded by souvenirs shops and cafeterias.

I really enjoyed the handmade granitas with fresh Lemon or Mint sold at small stalls in the street.

There is no way you can leave the country without trying a box of Turkish delights, which will make also the perfect present to get back home.

Three inadmissible spots for your Insta-pics will be:

  1. The seaside, with colourful restaurants on the beach and bars with shishas.
  2. The white and blue houses scattered around the city.
  3. The Marina with its luxurious boats.


Get fooled by shops selling designer bags at a very cheap price…unless you are aware that they are copies.

Thank you Bodrum, I felt like a Queen for a week! ๐Ÿ‘‘
