This is one of the peak tourist seasons in the city, the other being the Christmas and New Year holidays. The hot summer sun and blue waters attract quite the crowd during these months, so air fares, accommodation and general prices are at their highest.

Bodrum is a fairly safe city, however, you should still practice normal safety precautions such as keeping your valuables and important documentation safe and, although it is uncommon, watch out for petty crimes like bag-snatching or pick-pocketing.
Keep an eye out for restaurants that may overprice your bill exorbitantly - this has been a problem of tourist-scamming in the past. There is also a vast amount of stray dogs that inhabit the city, they can be harmless but be cautious around them, especially with children.
