Bodrum (Turkish pronunciation: [ˈbodɾum]) is a port city and the center of the eponymous district of Muğla Province in southwestern Turkey. It is located on the southern coast of Bodrum Peninsula, at the entrance into the Gulf of Gökova

During the 20th century the city's economy was mainly based on fishing and sponge diving, although tourism has became the main industry in Bodrum since the late 20th century. The abundance of visitors has also contributed to Bodrum's retail and service industry. Milas–Bodrum Airport and Kos International Airport are the main airports that serve the city. The port has ferries to other nearby Turkish and Greek ports and islands, Kos being the most important one. Most of the public transportation in the city is based on local share taxis and busses.
