For many years, international tourists who preferred the southwestern Muğla’s Bodrum district of Turkey for vacation, have mentioned it as the ultimate destination of the country and dubbed it the Turkish Riviera.
Famous for its cultural riches and exotic natural beauty, Bodrum is a popular holiday destination for visitors who regard it as their “second home.”
Jo Clarke, a British tourist enjoying Bodrum’s sea, sun and cultural riches, explained that she has been holidaying in Bodrum for 15 years and loves it a lot.
Clarke stated that she first came to town with her family at the age of 15.
“My aunt bought a house in Gümüşlük. My family loves Turkey. It is a relaxing place with very nice people,” Clarke said, stressing that Turkey has a special importance in her heart.
“I still want to see cities in Europe and many other countries, but Turkey has always been at the top of my list. I have visited Turkey many times. I want to see other countries, but I want to come here once again.”
The coastal town has all those amenities an ultimate holiday destination should have. It has beaches, shopping malls, cinemas, restaurants, as it is also well-known for its nightlife and upscale nightclubs.
Tim Mühler from Germany visited the town for the first time. “We traveled a lot in Bodrum and visited historic windmills. We knew Turkish dishes from Germany but the food here is better. A guide said ‘Bodrum is Turkey’s Saint-Tropez.’ The ambiance is very nice, people are friendly, and it is a very beautiful place,” Mühler said.
Jan Jadersand, a Swedish gymnastics teacher spending his holiday in the Bitez Quarter, emphasized that Bodrum is a incredible town.
