Ephesus to Bodrum

We would like to go to Bodrum in the late afternoon or evening from Ephesus to Bodrum. We will catch the ferry from Bodrum to Rhodes in the next morning.

Is there any bus scheduled for this route? If not, what is our best option?

We will arrive in Ephesus at 10.00 in the morning from Pamukkale by train. Spend one day at Ephesus and the surrounding area, then continue to Bodrum.

Your input please? Thanks.

There are buses almost everywhere in Turkey whether they are the larger long haul buses to the smaller Dolmuş ( mini-buses ) In Turkey there is no location ( almost) you can not reach by bus....and many of these you cannot pre-book...you just show up at the bus station ( otogar )

Bodrum - Ephesus ( Selcuk ) 160 km (100 miles) about 2.5 hrs..

Bus service to and from Bodrum is also convenient, particularly during the warm months.

hi we are coming to bodrum next week. we were thinking about going to kusadasi either by bus or renting a car and also would like to see pammukkle. what do you think is good for us? i cked the rentals and it seems expensive and we dont know where we are going really. I see the posting above about trains. Is there a train from bodrum to both kusadasi/ephesus and pammukkale? can we do this in two or three days? is that enough time? thanks for your input.

Hi... there are no trains from Bodrum to Kusadasi...but you can easy take a bus or rent a car...

Bodrum to Kusadasi: 151 km (94 miles) N, 2-1/2 hours

turkeytravelplanner.com/go/…index.html

From Selcuk you can I believe yes you can take a train to Denizli ( nearest to Pamukkale )

turkeytravelplanner.com/go/…index.html

turkeytravelplanner.com/trans/…index.html

But again a bus will be faster and there are plenty that travel this way...buses are frequent and you can find a bus to almost any location or city in Turkey..

The roads between Selcuk and Denizli are really good.

Selcuk to Pamukkale: 215 km (134 miles) E, 3-1/2 hours

for train info in Turkey try this link..

HELLLLLLLlPPP..............

We're stuck with the bus schedule. Can anybody inform us the complete bus schedule for this route:

Selcuk - Denizli (3 hrs?)

Selcuk - Marmaris (? hrs)

Denizli - Selcuk (3 hrs?) = 0800, 1630 ?

Denizli - Marmaris (4 hrs)

We want to create our itinerary based on the bus schedule. We have 6 days to spend in Turkey. We are planning to spend 2 days in Istanbul, 2 days in Cappadocia, 1 day in Pamukkale and 1 day in Ephesus. Then we will take morning ferry from Marmaris to Rhodes on the 7th day.

What is the best route to us to travel by bus from city to city? Istanbul-Ephe-Pamu-Cappa-Marmaris or Istanbul-Cappa-(Ephe/Pamu)-(Pamu/Ephe)-Marmaris.

Is the morning ferry from Marmaris to Rhodes runs daily? Our travel agent said they runs only in the afternoon on May 26 (our 7th day). That way, we have to skip one of the city. Anybody can help us on ferry schedule?

Canmom, if u read this, thank you so much for the info. Now I knew Varan, Ulusoy, Hidayet and Kamic Koc runs bus between those cities, but I cant figure out their route. They always put Istanbul or Marmaris as starting point. Will they stop at Pamukkale/Ephesus in the middle so we can take that bus from Pamukkale/Ephesus to Marmaris?
