Milas

Milas
Milas, with its busy Milas - Bodrum airport is usually a short stopping place on-route to Bodrum or Marmaris.
Originally the capital of the ancient Kingdom of Caria and formerly known as Mylasa, has many of its own interesting sites.
Away from the main streets there are many beautiful old houses and the bazaar on Tuesday, the best market day, offers honey and olives as local specialities and as Milas is noted as a “carpet making centre” perhaps this is the place to buy one.
