Hotels in Marmaris

                    Marmaris Details

                    Marmaris, Turkey, is known as a jewel of the Turkish Riviera. It sits on the Mediterranean Coast, in the Mugla Province in the southwest region of Turkey. This port city of just 18,000 people was once just a small fishing village. But in the 1980s, the tourism boom reached Marmaris, and luxury and budget hotels started springing up everywhere. By 2005, it was estimated that between three to four hundred thousand people flock to the area each summer. So while cheap Marmaris hotels might be a hot commodity, can help you find one for your stay.Today, tourists come for the Mediterranean climate, the sailing, and the ferries to the island of Rhodes in Greece. The Marmaris castle is a great site, with its large, arching gateway. There has been some form of castle on that spot since 3000 B.C., but it has been destroyed and rebuilt many times. Today, it is a museum dedicated to the history of the town, as well as providing an exhibition hall. A small caravanserai also stands in the town, built during the Ottoman occupation.
