Favorite thing: Bodrum castle is the most fantastic place to visit. During the summer months it is very hot in Turkey but when you go into the castle it is quiet, cool and calm with trees and shrubs. A different world. They also hold different events there, including Ballet in the coolness of the night.
Fondest memory: There are many sights and sounds of Bodrum that will stay with us forever,but the fondest memory that I have is that the people always speak to you and smile and are happy to help you. They will go out of their way to get something for you and all they want in return is for you to remember them again. Sometimes it can be hard to accept their kindness because we are not like this in England!

Favorite thing: The marina and port for ferries is located right in the heart of Bodrum. It's a bustling place hosting elegant yachts that come from all over the world. It's nice to walk along the marina and watch all those beautiful wooden sailing yachts.
Many sailing companies have there starting point in Bodrum for a cruise along the turquoise coast of Turkey.

Favorite thing: It's a pleasure to walk in the narrow streets near the castle and harbour. Here you will find many restaurants, bars and gift shops, selling carpets, leather, copper and bronze wares, silver and gold, handicrafts and embroidery.
The cosy alleys are pedestrianized and offer some shade during the hot sommer days.

Favorite thing: The voltage here in Bodrum is 220 volts. All electical appliances may be used here but of course as the pluds here are different i.e. 2 pin circular, then you will need a treveller adapter. Unlike Europe, most Turkish bathrooms have sockets and we advise caution when using these. From time to time power cuts may occur which unfortunately are out outt of our control but generally they do not last very long and normally power is quikly restored.

Favorite thing: I recommend that you do not drink the tap water in Bodrum due to it's high mineral content. Both 1 litre and 5 litre bottles can be purchased or from the bar or market in your accommodation or from one of the many markets around the resort. For those staying in self-catering acommodation the tap water can be used for making tea or coffee as there is no problem once the water is boiled.

Favorite thing: In the centre of all resort you will find the Post Office which is indicated in Bodrum with a yellow sign resding "P.T.T." The opening hours may vary from town to town but in general in high season your local post office is open from early morning until at least midnight and seven days a week. Here you can buy stamps and make telephone calls. Some accommodations sell stamps and will post letters and cards for you. When calling home of course the easiest way is to phone from your hotel or apartments. Most accommodations have direct telephones in the rooms or if not the reception can connect you.

Favorite thing: The ferry I came with from Datch docked in the harbour in the west bay. On the pier below the castle are the ferry offices, and beside Datch (Körmen) there are also ferries to Kos and Rhodos from here.
Below the castle and around the western bay it is full of yachts (gullets), which you can take a daytrip with or rent for several days. The yachts are a nice sight in the harbour.

Favorite thing: Citizens of most of the European countries need visas to enter Turkey, but all you need is a valid passport and 10 euros/dollars/pounds.
Turkish money is called Turkish lira, and 1 euro is around 1750000 liras. Money can sometimes be a problem there, because you can easily get confused with all that zeros, but later you get used to it.
