      We are to arrive at Izmir Airport at around 10:20 am and wish to process to Selcuk where we are staying for a while. One reads that Izmir-Selcuk train (there is one at 11:45 am) is a cheap option and that the railway station at the Izmir Airport is easily accessible. However some reviewers have commented that the trains which start from Izmir are crowded and getting on them with luggage and then getting a seat is a problem. Is it really that bad? Anyone with personal experience to help us decide please?

    • almost a day in selcuk

      by mindcrime Online Now Apr 1, 2014 at 11:44 AM

      we plan to arrive in Selcuk at about 18.00 and take the bus to Pamukkale the day after at 16.00.
      the first day is pretty easy, checking in at the hotel and then a dolmus to Sirence.
      the problem is the second day.
      I was thinking to take a dolmus early in the morning so to be back before check out (11.00).
      1)will we have to walk back to same entrance to catch a dolmus back to Selcuk?
      2)what should we do the rest of the day?
      3)should we stay in Selcuk and visit the museum and the basilica?
      4)is taxi the only option for Mary's home?

      by juliaBE Online Now Nov 12, 2012 at 11:57 PM

      I'm planning my first trip to Turkey in May on my own and I haven't got much time. I need to know if its possible to do this part of the itinerary like this:
      From Izmir to Selcuk to visit Efeso, catch an evening bus to Pamukkale, spend the night there and see the sights the following morning. (Aphrodisias and the Pamukkale travertines). That very night we need to take a bus to Marmaris to catch the ferry to Rhodes. Is it too tight a schedule? Thanks for any piece of advice! Julia

      Selcuk to Izmir to Ayvalik by bus?

      by Annali-Floris Online Now Apr 7, 2012 at 5:52 AM

      Hi again!

      I cannot seem to get a web site in English for bus schedules and prices.

      We will be 4 adults travelling from Selcuk to Ayvalik on Saturday 16 June. We would like to spend some time at the market in Selcuk before we leave for Ayvalik.

      Will there be frequent buses travelling this route on a Saturday? How much time will it take more or less to get to Ayvalik and how much does it cost?

      Thank you so much for your help.

Also I would like to know how long it will take, Iam almost sure that I would have to change buses, be it at Denizli, Aydin or Izmir. I tried all those combinations in Google and could not find an answer. Got great information from Canmon (bus schedule). Second, I would like to spend 3 or 4 days in Selcuk, if anyone knows a nice hotel, quiet, clean, good shower. (personal experience is always good). Thank you all so much, this site has helped me enourmously, this is I hope my last question.

      I will be arriving in Selcuk a day before (afternoon) and will do a ephesus day tour the next day before evening bus to Pamukkale. I have checked around and the only bus that go straight to Pamukkale (not Denizli) is Ege Koop which depart at 4.30pm. Is there enough time for me to see around by 4pm and if not , is there any other bus that goes to pamukkale ( or denzili).

      I got confused where these buses stop and where to hop onto another to another destination.

      By the way are the bus station at Izmir the same? Meaning bus from selcuk and bus leaving for Cesme is the same station at Izmir?

      Im a few weeks out from a 5 day stay in Turkey and am landing in Istanbul. I’ve decided to spend 2 full days in Istanbul and have allocated the other 3 for traveling elsewhere. There are so many sites to see around turkey and im overwhelmed with the choices and sacrifices I will need to make. And don’t know what sites are worth seeing more. Can anyone help me?
      Apart from Gallipoli and Selcuk(Ephesus) which I know I really want to go to, im curious to know if its worth cramping in a visit to troy, and if i should choose to visit Pergamom or Pamukkale as time is restricting me!!

      Spending 1 day at Ephesus and starting off at Gallipoli are a must. What would be the best way to go about spending my 3 days around turkey outside of Istanbul?

    • Çanakkule > Bergama > Selçuk ?

      by rawpaul Online Now Mar 12, 2007 at 12:12 PM

      We'd like to stop and see Pergamum while travelling from Çanakkule to Selçuk, but I've been told that the main bus route from Çanakkule to Izmir/Selçuk does not pass through Bergama (30 km off the route). Is it feasible to get from Çanakkule to Bergama, visit the sites at Pergamum and then get to Selçuk that night ? I believe it takes 2-3 from Çanakkule > Bergama and about the same from Bergama > Selçuk, so if we left early in the morning and we willing to arrive at Selçuk in the evening, it seems we should be able to fit about 6 hours in at Pergamum. Or am I dreaming ?

      But I have no idea how to arrange the travel to and from Bergama. Can anyone make suggestions ?

      (We only have one full day in Selçuk, and most of another day, and we want to fit in Ephesus and a day trip to Pamukkale. So we won't be able to fit in a day trip to Pergamum from Selçuk)
