Flight and hotel Bodrum

Bodrum's ancient history

Perched on the Aegean, city breaks in Bodrum (which is also the name of the surrounding region on the Bodrum Peninsula) offer the best possible mix of culture, history, beaches, and nightlife. This sunny city, in ancient times called Halicarnassus, is a famous destination as both a resort town and an incredible place to visit ancient structures. And given its status as a go-to vacation destination for Turks and foreigners alike, you can get some great shopping in over a weekend in Bodrum.

What to Know For a Visit to Bodrum

It's easy to catch a flight to Bodrum from the UK, as there are direct fights from Manchester to Bodrum as well as, of course, flights from London. Bodrum-Milas airport is 35km from the city, and you can easily get a bus or a private taxi to the city. UK citizens need a visa, for a small cost, to visit Turkey; this can be obtained online ahead of time when planning your flight and hotel for Bodrum, or in the airport upon arrival.

Turkey's currency is the Turkish Lira. Bodrum is three hours ahead of the UK. The city's friendly locals often speak some English, particularly those working in fields related to travel, but it can't hurt to learn a few basic phrases while you're planning your flight and hotel for Bodrum.

When Is the Best Time to Visit Bodrum?

What Is There to Do in Bodrum?

From ancient ruins to modern museums, thronged markets to glittering mosques, Turkey's coastal gem has it all. On at least one evening during city breaks in Bodrum, catch the last of the sun's sparkling rays from Bodrum's impressive Castle of St Peter. Then head into the night, in pursuit of the city's glittering lights. White House is the centre of the club scene, where thumping house music has reverberated for over three decades. The posh venue Kuba boasts an attractive terrace bar. Enjoy views of the castle from the Moonlight beach bar, or hang out in a converted sponge warehouse at the arty Dada Salon.
