Best “insiders” tip?
On the surface, the Bodrum Peninsula may seem like a high-priced tourist trap pandering to the cruise line crowd; the all-inclusive holiday-makers; and the city-dwellers, looking for some beach-action.
But at any of the coastal locations, you don’t have to venture very far from the main thoroughfares to find good local businesses, with non-tourist prices.
Many of the excursions offered by the Travel Agents so prevalent in the tourist areas, can actually be arranged independently byusing the local dolmuş service, and a sense of adventure. This approach not only saves you money, but adds flexibility to your schedule.
I love Bodrum because ________?
…it’s a holiday-destination Jekyll and Hyde. It’s mass tourism, and quaint local-ism.
It is heaving crowds, squashed into narrow cobbled streets haggling for bargains; but it’s also sparse farmer’s markets milling with locals.
It is sipping expensive cocktails in open-air night clubs, pumping dance music ’til dawn; and it’s enjoying a harbour-side cup of Turkish Coffee, as the fisherman survey the landscape at dawn’s early light.
