Hammam bathhouses are an essential part of Turkish culture. But something I found inside made me reassess myself.
I fondly remember my hammam visit in Bodrum 30 years ago at the Princess Karia Hotel. Other than the man massaging me, who grabbed my breasts then said “you like”? 😂
Fascinating glimpse into a part of Turkish culture that few outsiders get to experience! I’ve never been to a hammam but I’ve been to a Korean sauna for a body scrub which seems to be a similar experience, except my private parts were washed along with everything else! It was very businesslike and professional. Unexpected, but I didn’t mind it at all. 😊
