Anyone taking a break from the beach and wanting to do a little shopping will not be disappointed. There are a number of shops selling a host of reasonably priced items. Carpets, crafts, silver and gold are all available. Make sure you do all these before your gulet cruise Bodrum:
The traditional shopping area of Bodrum was the streets to the south and east of the Post Office. Speciality shops still survive for such things as pottery, sandals and carpets. Ataturk Street is one place to head
As Bodrum has grown some of these small shops have been replaced by traders aiming at the tourism market. Souvenir shops have sprung up while there has been an increased number of bars and restaurants.
