Travel to


After the very friendly and helpful answer at my previous question (thanks to enigma & kingwood) . I'd like to add another questions :)

If I've time, I really like to go to around Pamukkale area to see The White Travertines and the Hierapolis.

The nearest airport from where I'll be stayed is Sabiha Gokcen.

The question are, could it be done in one day, I mean in the night I need to return to Pendik (Istanbul). From Denizli (Cardak airport) how I can get to The White Travertines and the Hierapolis? Which budget airline I could take and where I could buy it (online maybe). The transport (bus/train) to the sightseeing spots including the fares and travel time taken. Sorry if it's heard too demanding :)

If someone have another better idea where I could spent one day outside Istanbul, I really appreciate it. So far my option are Pamukkale or Cappadocia.

Thank you in advance.

Andri, Turkish Airlines flies to Denizli from Istanbul and they fly from Ataturk Airport. Your best bet is to take the very early 06.20 flight from IST to Denizli and take the 19.15 flight from Denizli back to IST. Have a look: "https:/…1". However Pegasus Airlines also flies to Denizli from Sabiha Gokcen. "www.flypgs.com". However they have no flights on Fridays and Sundays. "ismailbaytur.com/index.php/hizmetlerimiz/car…". However if you fly with Pegasus, it seems that you have to return with Turkish Airlines on the same day.

Just transfer to city with the airport shuttle by Bay-Tur, go to Otogar and take a minibus to Pamukkale. (frequent). "ismailbaytur.com/index.php/…servis-saatleri". return the same way to airport.

good luck,

We went to Cappadocia and stayed 3 nights. We went on Pegasus which was fine. Personally, going to Cappadocia for a day trip is not worth it. The only thing you will accomplish is "I have been to Cappadocia", but not really see anything. I cannot comment on Pamukkale.

Personally, what I would do is send that money by splurging on a nice dinner overlooking the Bosphorus and relaxing.
