Jutting into the Aegean, the Bodrum Peninsula lies between the Turkish town of Kusadasi and Marmaris, opposite the Greek island of Kos. Development of this area is carefully monitored by the local authorities and as a result much of the peninsula retains its natural charm. That being said, Bodrum and its surrounding provinces such as Golturkbuku, Yalikavak, Gumbet, Turgutreis, Bitez, Ortakent and GundoganIt still attracts a chic local clientele from Istanbul giving it a feel of the French Riviera with a Eastern twist. The cuisine, the bazaars and the hammams are oriental; the culture is an easygoing variety of Islamic: the result is an intriguing mix of mosques and bikini-lifestyle which is unique to this part of the world.
