Located in the Turkish province of Mugla, the city of Bodrum lies on the southernmost coast of the Bodrum Peninsular at a point that checks entry into the Gulf of Gokova. In ancient times the city was known for housing the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and was also called Halicarnassus. Bodrum Castle was built in the 15th century by the Knights Hospitaller and stands proudly over the harbour and marina. The castle's grounds hosts a number of cultural festivals throughout the years and is also home to the Museum of Underwater Archaeology.
A popular spectacle if visiting the city in October or November takes place in nearby Bargilya where the locals can be seen harvesting olives. There is a pretty lagoon there and some lovely fish restaurants.
Bodrum Cruise Port is located 36 km from the Milas International Airport and few minute walk to the city centre. The Port has the capacity to service at least two large cruise vessels at a time together with three motorboats. The port also has three ferryboat ramps. The port has ferries to other nearby Turkish and Greek ports and islands.
Kos is a Greek island that lies in the eastern Aegean Sea and is situated to the south of the island of Kalymnos and to the north of the island of Nisyros. The island, which is only around 3 miles off the Turkish coast and sits in the Keramiko Gulf, or the Kos Gulf, is the third largest of the Dodecanese islands. Kos is a well known and popular holiday destination where visitors go to enjoy the island's beaches. Kos was also one of the first Greek islands to recognise the benefits of tourism to its economy and as a result many hotels were built along the island's long and sandy coastline in the east and south. Cycling is a popular activity on Kos as the island's terrain is quite flat and because there are many bicycle hire outlets throughout the island along with some dedicated cycle paths between some of the larger hotels.
There are daily services between Kos and Piraeus along with services between Kos and the rest of the Dodecanese, the islands of the north eastern Aegean and Turkey. The trip by conventional ferry can take up to 13 hours, depending on the intermediate stopovers, and the trip with a high speed boat can take between 5 and 8 hours.
