best little Hamam in Turkey (and our
personal favorite) happens to
be in Bodrum. It is opposite the Bus Depot. It is very clean, the
proprietors are very friendly and
both the Women's and Men's hamams are nice. I suggest you get the works - a Kese, Soap Massage and Oil Massage. The best time to go is
Tuesdays or any day after 5pm. The attendant at the Bodrum hamam
speaks English perfectly - so relax - you will love it!
