Things To Do Before Your Bodrum Gulet Charter

So you’ve set your plans on a gulet charter from Bodrum. Your gulet is booked and it’s time to arrive and start your holidays.  How exciting! Should your flight and transfer bring you to the harbor way before you are scheduled to embark on your trip. What to do? Plenty!

Things To Do at the Harbor Before Your Bodrum Gulet Charter Holidays Begin

Depending on your travel plans, you might not get a chance to explore Bodrum before or after your trip. Therefore if you have the few hours to spare while waiting for your gulet dream boat to be ready; you might as well visit a few places worth seeing.

The Bodrum harbor is a very colorful place – a bustling place.  You can stroll along through the shaded streets lined with all types of shops for souvenirs and necessities. Starting from one end of the waterfront to the other, there are restaurants and cafes.  From the municiple to privately operated establishments, have a seat, relax and take the load off your feet. It’s a pleasant time to simply gaze out to the beautiful harbor and watch the many stunning Turkish wooden gulets; coming in and going out of the harbor.

World renown Bodrum, the city that rarely sleeps is home to much of the Southern coastal maritime history dating back hundreds of years.  It is a place that draws the attention of visitors from around the world – all year round. While some harbors along Southern Turkey have more tourists from one, two maybe three countries – Bodrum is totally different. Visitors are from everywhere around the globe. Some say that perhaps Bodrum is Southern Turkey’s Istanbul on smaller holiday scale. Art, culture, history, authentic and varied cuisine – it’s all here.

Bodrum benefits from the “no hassle” concept. It’s so rare (if any) you will see shopkeepers and waiters hassling passerbys to come in and dine or buy their products. This is such a nice relief and let’s you explore the marketplace and harbor front peacefully and undisturbed.

Another Bodrum feature is the famous landmark St. Peter’s Castle and Museum of Underwater Archaeology. These two places are located at the harbor or literally in front of where you would most likely be boarding your quality Bodrum gulet charter trip.
