If you feel like a spot of retail-therapy, Bodrum can deliver your fix. Your options range from genuine-fakes at the weekly Bodrum Market to designer goods at the Bodrum Marina shopping centre. Or wander around the old town pedestrian bazaar near the bay, or head to the main road into Bodrum, to discover the Oasis Shopping centre.
After Turgutreis Saturday Pazar, Bodrum market is the next biggest on the Peninsula. At Tuesday’s Textile market the stalls consist of clothing and bags, bedding and household items. On Friday’s it’s the main fruit and vegetable market (and there’s a smaller fruit and vegetable market on Thursday’s.)View full post
Ortakent-Yahşi has one of the longest strips of beach on the peninsula, and is popular with families. In the peak summer months the beach is packed with beach loungers, which are serviced by waiters from the local restaurants and hotels – which means, that once you’ve plotted up on the beach, you don’t have to move very far!View full post
