Having heard many good things from friends and family about Bodrum, my mum and me decided we wouldn't miss the opportunity to visit the city on our holiday to Kos, so we booked a day return aboard the Maria Star and it was a perfect day out. The boatride is quite gorgeous, sailing next to the coastline of Turkey, and entering Bodrum with a perfect view of the medieval castle and the gorgeous marina. Once safely on shore, we took a long citywalk, to buy souvenirs for loved ones at home and see some of the sights. We stumbled upon a mausoleum which later turned out to be one of the seven ancient wonders of the world, the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, which was well worth a visit. Later on we climbed even higher to the amphitheatre, which was a spot ideal for taking panoramic pictures of Bodrum. Before the boat departed back to Kos we had a few drinks in one of the cute cafes by the marina. Highly recommended!
