Bodrum

 


Lakeside Gardens apartments are located in Bodrum Peninsula, in the hills, 10 minutes from Bodrum airport and the city is just 25 minutes by car.  The bus may take a bit longer but stops right outside the complex and it costs less than £2.00 .  During my Turkish holidays I mainly stay  in  Lakeside Village and I go often to Bodrum.
 
 



Bodrum is the touristiest city in Turkey Coast. This coastal town in which traditional and modern life go along hand in hand is situated on a beautiful peninsula. Enchanting villages of houses painted in white  with miles of sandy beaches Two metres under the narrow streets of Bodrum lies 5000 years of history. The city was called Halicarnassus of Caria in ancient times and was famous for housing the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World.










A few monuments attest to this history:  Bodrum famous castle St Peter is an impressive example of medieval architecture, the Myndus Gate, the Roman theatre and the Mausoleum which is one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World dating back to 353 BC. The Underwater Archeology Museum is a most fascinating attraction of the museum in Bodrum. The Museum displays objects recovered from the sea along with illustrations of the methods and equipment used by the underwater



St Peter Castle


View of the Marina







Roman Theatre



Mausoleum

     There are also many Lovely restaurants in the beach with beautiful views and delicious Turkish dishes and fish.







La Marina


 




Shops have the same items than in the Grand Bazaar of Istanbul but Bodrum shops are less overpriced but of course we still  need  to haggle.
 


 
 
Beautiful sunsets

This post switched me into summer mood! I cannot wait to be by the sea! :) And by the way I really like your outfit. Is that bag Michael Kors? I am planning to buy MK on my trip to New York as the prices are sooo low to compare with Czech Republic.

Definitely much better price in America than in Europe, MK or Guess handbags and watches, I have bought them in New York or Florida before, take the opportunity of your trip and get them from there! And have lovely holidays! Xx

The jumpsuit is absolutely gorgeous and you wearing it beautifully. What an amazing place it is. I love all your beautiful pics. I am so longing for a nice looooong vacation, lol. Glad all went well at the dentist. Let's hope for both of us that we don't need to see a dentist until our next check up is due, hahaha ;)
