Every moment in Bodrum is like a fast heart beat.

The day has just begun with the voice of prayer before sunrise, the moment for some who buy fresh fish from the boat yards, those making their way back to the hotel at the end of the night after dancing the whole night away. A tea brewed for some, a delicious breakfast with various cheeses, fresh tomatoes and pure olive oil, the first swim stroke thrown into the deep blueness of the Aegean sea. History, Culture, Hellenism and Halicarnassus are all on offer, Rakı- rocket salad or a fish meal for some. The night life or the day, the choice is yours. Bohemia at Gumusluk, A jet-set life at Turkbuku, Artisan at Yakakoy or an excellent street market in Bitez or a boutique hotel at Yalıkavak.

Here is Bodrum. The door to the most entertaining resort in Mugla which has something for everyone…
