We have booked to go to the area in October(Yalikavak) and was searching for a guide of the peninsula but most of the books did not meet our needs despite the high costs so we were delighted when this guide became available and have skipped through it twice and are now looking at it more closely and planning our holiday.
It does not go into pages of endless boring details like some guides and tells us exactly what we want to know about transport, what and where to eat at all the places we intend to visit, where to shop, markets, what to see at each location etc.etc
All in all a great guide and have no hesitation giving it full marks!
This is the essential guide to Bodrum and surrounding towns It is packed with information and very useful suggestions. I have used the guide for several years and have bought the update. I'd love to thank Ms Artale in person Tesakkur ederim!
Despite being one of the best trodden tourist trails in Turkey, there are few, if any, comprehensive guidebooks to the Bodrum Peninsula. Until now, that is. Meticulously researched, well written and easy to navigate, the Bodrum Peninsula Travel Guide is an all-inclusive compendium, covering everything that a visitor needs to know about this gorgeous little corner of Turkey. Even those who are well-acquainted with the area will find some surprising little nuggets. The author has pulled off quite a coup.
Very good book.i bought this as i could only get one other guide book from my library for this area of turkey.which didnt give alot of detail. This book however gave great amount of info about gatting around cheaply and also gave some great little walks which enabled us to see parts of the area few others get to.
What a real gem! This book is full of really useful local information specifically aimed at the bodrum peninsular. It gives local bus times, recommends restaurants, ( photographs of menu's and prices particularly useful!) The information is written in a very friendly way, almost like chatting to a friend about where the best places are to visit.
A fantastic little book absolutely packed with hints, tips, guides and ideas for your visit to the Bodrum Peninsula.
I had this on my phone and consulted it before we left for holiday and also during our trip. There's so much info in here for just a few quid - it's amazing value and totally up to date too. The tip about how to get an e-visa before going meant that we waltzed through passport control at Bodrum airport whilst everyone else on our plan had to queue up to fill out their visas! We also planned a lot of activities from suggestions in the book and felt we had a bit more insider knowledge than if we'd just bought a regular travel book. it was like having an English friend who knew everything about our Turkish locale on hand with tips and suggestions. Highly recommended.
