Tour DM08: Tastes of Bodrum. The Castle of St. Peter was beautifully preserved, extensive, and interesting. the Carian princesss Hall at the top of the castle grounds was interesting, but in hindsight, I don't think I would have gone in. The Amphors exhibition and Roman shipwreck on the site are also interesting, and do not take a long time to see. Bus took us to Myndos Gage and the Mausoleum, which is gone except for some pieces of pillars. The bus also stopped at the Great Theater of Ancient Halicarnassus, which normally I would have loved to explore except I was too tired and there was not time - the bus just basically stopped at it.

walk from port to first marina, onto docks, and negotiate a sailing. There are party boats with many passengers at 50TL ($1-TL2.65), private boats for day with captain and mate and lunch TL 400 and less, depending upon boat. We were there during Ramadan, so lower pricing than in later summer months. Try the Bodrum / Turkish delight. There's a store in the market (not far from castle end) that sells it fresh - so very good.
