Halicarnassus, an Ancient Greek colony established by the Dorians, was the site of strategic battles that saw the Persians, Alexander the Great, Egyptians and Ottomans reign over it. Today it is known as Bodrum – a bustling, dynamic town on the Turkish coast just 40 minutes from Kos, offering a quick, exotic window into Asia Minor. What awaits you there is the impressive 15th-century castle of Saint Peter built by the Knights Hospitalier, as well as the Mausoleum, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. A visit to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology is also recommended, so is a visit to the old Ottoman shipyard. Bodrum also offers good shopping and features an authentic Turkish Hamam, a great way to finish the day before heading back to the Kipriotis Resort Complex.
