Bodrum cannot boast of a vibrant nightlife and plenty of entertainment, but you can still find luxurious all-inclusive hotels there. The thing is that they are scattered in different parts of the city and even its outskirts, and not grouped in the center.

The nature in this place is so amazing. To admire the unique turquoise sunsets in Bodrum is such the fascinating occupation that it is difficult to describe. And if you add to it small cozy houses with evening lights and a very beautiful sea, then the picture becomes magical.
