More about Bodrum Princess Turkbuku

Quality hotel in Bodrum

by andycul about Karia Princess, Bodrum

Clean comfortable hotel with very good food. Located on the edge of Bodrum town centre close to Gumbet and Bardaci. It is a 15 minute stroll to the beautiful marina but you should be aware that this is the quieter end of Bodrum. Although rated 5 star, this is relative to a good 3 star/4 star hotel in England.

Hotel has two good sized swimming pools and a tennis court.

Bodrum is a wonderful place to explore by car with the airport only 35 minutes away. The peninsular lies south west of Turkey and you can easily reach small villages and towns within 30 minutes of Bodrum. Turgetreis has a fun market on Saturdays with clothes and fresh produce which is less hastle than Bodrum's Tuesday bazaar. 2 pools and a tennis court. Onsite hamam which I didn't try.

by Erkmen

It was almost 10 years ago, when I first went to Turkbuku.. One of my friend was owning a house nearby at Golkoy, and just in the middle of the night, we have passed a tiny, not maintained road, and lead to the bay behind..

We have stayed the night there and next morning decided to leave for Bodrum.. And this time I had the chance to see Turkbuku in day light... What a beatiful bay, and a wonderful atmosphere..

Turkbuku is just 20-25 minutes to bodrum and similar distance to Bodrum airport.. It was just a small fisherman village with a nice atmosphere, however in the last years it has changed alot..

For foreigners, however, Turkbuku, situated on the northern end of the Bodrum peninsula, is still Turkey's best kept secret. And with the introduction of swimming-decks which turn into chic restaurants at sunset, and stylish hotels, Turkbuku looks set to mark its spot on the world's exclusive holiday map/agenda.

Now Turkbuku hosts the high society.. Many new hotels and deluxe restaurants has opened.. and wonderful beaches, CLubs and restaurants.. It aint no more a fisherman village but the only good thing is that all those new things, have not managed to spoil the beauty yet..


by em6265 about Mavi Beach Bar etc

Golturkbuku (commonly referred to just as Turkbuku) is a part of Bodrum that is generally overlooked by foreign tourists. And the Turks want to keep it that way ;) This is actually where most trendy Turkish people holidaying in Bodrum go for nights out- dinner, bars, clubs. You wouldn't find these people in places like Halikarnas and Gumbet. Bodrum (the town) is a wild, tacky kind of place and most foreign tourists seem to love it. However it is not for everyone. For those looking for something more classy I recommend Turkbuku. A word of warning for those on a tight budget, Turkbuku is popular with well-heeled Turkish people and is not cheap.
Golturkbuku is on the north of the Bodrum peninsula and not far from the Bodrum town centre. Less casual than Bodrum town. This area is popular with fashionable Turkish people who tend to be a polished crowd.
No need to go overboard though.


by nihandenis

There is no bus system for travelling around Bodrum Peninsula. We have minibusses that called Dolmus. It is rational & efficient. From Bodrum to the villages go to Otogar. You can find dolmuses to ;
Yalikavark etc.

Clubs and stuff

by Stewboy

I'm going to Bodrum on the 17th of September and its a lads holiday so were obviously wanting to do the whole club thing. However I have my doubts as to whether there will even be anyone out there our age at this time of year as its late into the summer and everyones back at uni. On top of this there have been a few bombs in marmaris and even though thats a hundered miles from Bodrum were worried everyones going to be put off and its going to be dead.

If anyone could answer this question for me I would be grateful as were thinking of maybe getting it all refunded if thats going to be the case. But if not could you let me know of any good places to go out or whether Bodrum is better than Gumbet for a night clubbing.

Cheers people

RE: Clubs and stuff

by tinaincornwall

HI, Turkey on a whole has been fairly quiet this year but I am just back from spending the summer in bodrum and it was buzzing.
There are numerous places to go and have fun, but the Halikarnas is the famous one to visit, they have speciality nights there and Im sure your friends and you will have a great time there, you will get passed passes for the clubs in bodrum some offering free drinks etc.,
Gumbet is good for a night or two too, its completely different to bodrum but the X-bar is the place all the young people love there. You will find drinks are cheaper in gumbet too.
I hope you have a great time I think you will somehow!!

RE: RE: Clubs and stuff

by Stewboy

Cheers for the advice tinain cornwall, I appreciate it. I'l look out for the x-bar.


RE: RE: Clubs and stuff

by Alikatt

Are you aware that it will Ramadan there at that time? It doesn't mean you cannot party but perhaps even fewer places will be busy. It's a month-long religious observance.

I don't know if any clubs will be open but you ought to check out Maki Hotel in Turkbuku or Ship Ahoy. Check my VT pages for Turkbuku for you to have an idea. It is about 25 minutes by bus or taxi from Bodrum proper. It rocks in the summer and is quite posh. There is also Supper Club and Bianca there, two new hot spots in Turkey this summer.

what to do with a day

by Karenmillar

Hi there, we have 1 day at Bodum, Antalya and Cyprus and would like to make the most of them. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
Karen, New Zealand

Re: what to do with a day

by infinitys


spend your Cyprus day in a city called '' Girne '' which is more attractive than other towns of Turkish Republic of Cyprus. For Bodrum,it will be better if you will stay at the main heart of the city to see some must places of the town like museums,bars,night life etc... About Antalya, again the location of your hotel will play an important role to travel around the city. For example,within 1-2 hours by bus from Antalya,you can be able to see the historical theatre in a town called '' Side '',and come to '' Manavgat '' to see the wonderful waterfall for example.

Re: what to do with a day

by iaint

Definitely the castle in Bodrum. It will take 3 hours. Best in early morning if you're there in the summer.

Re: what to do with a day

by nihandenis

Hi if you are going to stay only one day in Bodrum , I would suggest you to visit the castle first. And afterwards you can wander down to the harbour see the stunning gulets (traditional Turkish wooden boats).You can also walk to the bar street where you can find small shops & bars.On this way have a cup of coffee at Mado where you have nice Castle view. There is nothing to do in Bodrum in winter time so I would suggest you to hire a car & visit the villages bays of Bodrum. You can make a peninsula tour starting from Gumbet, Bitez, Ortakent, Yahsi, Camel Beach, Akyarlar, Turgutreis, Gumusluk, Yalikavak, Turkbuku , Torba & back to Bodrum.

How's life in Bodrum?

by m2rco

Hi, we're 3 couples and we probably will book a week in bodrum this aug, so how's the place in august? full of people? crowd of tourist on the beach? or it's a place where we can chill and have some night fun (any disco, pub or so)? and the town? how's the town?

Re: How's life in Bodrum?

by 123eileen

If your youmg and want plenty of life then Bodrum or Gumbet is the place for you August is hot and busy!

If you want access to Bodrum for night life but want something more laid back during the day then try Bitez.
It still has lots of bars and good restaurants but is 15 minutes by bus to Bodrum.

Sure you will have a great holiday.

Re: Re: How's life in Bodrum?

by babazula

A bit like the USA

by kreton

You can find anything and everything there if you know where to go. Whatever your lifestyle, there is something for you in Bodrum.

Apart from Bodrum, there are many other neighboring towns nearby. Make sure to visit them since Bodrum is sometimes too crowded and noisy. Some tourists do not step outside Bodrum and miss a lot. I will shortly describe some towns in that area. First make sure to solve your transportation problem. Rent a car if u can or take the local shuttle minibuses. Minibuses are cheap but may be hot and crowded. An alternative is taxis but they are very expensive. A short ride costs 10 $, airport to town is 40$, town to town is 30-50 $.

Bodrum : Visit the local bazaar, CARSI near the castle. Lots of bars & restaurants everywhere. Expect loud music until 4AM during weekends in the marina neighborhood.

Gumusluk : Has the local fisherman's village atmosphere. Strongly recommended but may be too crowded during summer.

Turkbuku and partially Golkoy : the place to be if u're chic, into parties, wanna spend a lot of money and wish to "see and be seen"

Yaliciftlik : I love it. Smell the local village life. Totally untouched.

Here's some info for you to get started ! Hope it helps ļ
