From Izmir airport to Selcuk-Pumukkale-Bodrum: how to get?

Hi, Guys,

We are flying from Kayseri to Izmir. From there, we are going to Selcuk, then to Pumukkale and finally to Bodrum. Should we consider renting a car in Izmir airport to do this track or is there easy and extensive public transportation (train/bus/dolmus) we can take? We are also short of time in each of these places, so we don't want to waste too much time in transportation. We are leaving in a week and I still haven't figured this out. Please help! Thanks very much,

Maira

It sounds like you should rent a car at Izmir Airport. The road from there to Selcuk is so easy (less than 1 hour) and your rental will include motorway fees, so drive through the OGS lane as fast as you like.

Selcuk to Pamukkale is not much fun but an easy 3 hour drive (use the motorway again). Then to Bodrum ... hmm mostly good roads.

I'm surprised that one of the local tour groups haven't replied with an offer.

Thanks, lorimerr. I'm glad that they didn't, we don't want to travel with excursions and we already have our schedule plus all our hotels booked. Our concern was mostly how to get from one place to the other, considering time, costs, sightseeing and reasonable comfort. Apparently your suggestion is just right, we are seriously considering renting a car now, although it is the most pricey option.
