Bodrum is the site of the ancient city of Halikarnassus, the location of the famous Mausoleum of Halikarnassus one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Unfortunately, the ancient monument was destroyed by earthquakes in the Middle Ages - some of the remnants can be seen in London's British Museum and only few in Bodrum. But there is the castle constructed by the Knights of Rhodes in the 15th century during the crusades of the middle ages. The Bodrum Castle is open to the public and it houses Bodrum’s remarkable Museum of Underwater Archaeology and also hosts several Turkish cultural festivals throughout the year.

In recent times the region has witnessed rapid growth and dramatic transformation, particularly in the past two decades. Bodrum is much more than the twin bays, and it still has quite a long way to go before becoming just another one of Turkey's overbuilt seaside resorts. The Bodrum peninsular and the surrounding region offer a unique balance of vibrant, cosmopolitan towns and small traditional fishing villages. A multitude of activities and historical attractions have made the area one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey. 

During winters and springs, November through April, the weather in Bodrum is generally very good with a few heavy shower periods, usually taking place in November, and then some time after new year and the last one in March/April. February is especially pleasant with not too cold nights and the almond blossoming and the abundance of wild ruccola all over the place. Summers, arriving after April, are as hot as it can get (expect temperatures higher than 35 C) and sunny with no rain. July and August are the hottest months, it is very adisable to consider your holiday in Bodrum out of high season.
