Tepecik, Turgut Reis Caddesi 93, Bodrum

The Mausoleum at Halicarnassis, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, still stands today, albeit in remnants. Its true appearance remains a mystery to many, but it's believed that the renowned sculptor, Skopas, lent his talent to parts of its decoration — and it was undoubtedly extravagant. Nowadays, visitors can only gaze upon the remains of the once majestic building's walls, the rest having been claimed by earthquakes and the passage of millennia.

Inaugurated in 1997 and located 36 km east of Bodrum, Milas-Bodrum Airport serves both regular and chartered flights.

There are plenty of taxis awaiting you at both the international and domestic arrivals.

Public Transport

Taking a 'dolmuş' is the best way to get around in Bodrum. These are minibuses — or large taxis — that depart when they’re full and stop where required. Buses leave from the Bodrum bus terminal and run between Turgutreis-Yalikavak and Bodrum. They can be hailed as they pass.
