Surrounded by turquoise water that glints in the ever-present sunshine and lined with hundreds of yachts, it isn't hard to see why Bodrum is one of Turkey's premier beach destinations. Home to one of the ancient wonders of the world, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, Bodrum is much more than just Turkish eye candy, it is rich in history and cultural heritage. From Bodrum it's also possible to visit the Roman ruins of Ephesus and the remarkable natural travertines of Pamukkale.
