Pamukkale Turkey

We would like to travel from Kusadasi to Pamukkale, spending one night in or near Pamukkale. We will then travel to Denzali for our flight to Istanbul. What are the recommendations on how to get from Kusadasi to Pamukkale? Will we be able to see the sights in Pamukkale on our own or do we need to book a tour? We hope to have most of a full day there to see the travertines at evening.

What is the easiest and cheapest way to get to Denzali?

DonellaJ, welcome to Turkey.

The easiest and cheapest way to get to Denizli is to take a dolmush from Kusadasi to Selcuk (5 TL) and the local train from Selcuk to Denizli. here are the train schedules: "turkeytravelplanner.com/go/Aegean/Izmir/tran…". From Denizli you can take another dolmush to Pamukkale. I suggest that you do them yourself. You really do not need a guide.

there is a 9am bus with Metro Turizm and arrives in Denizli at 8pm

342007 ISTANBUL-DENIZLI [TVLI KOLTUK] 09:00 20:00

you can also look up on the below websites for other bus companies

Bus travel for long haul

http://www.ulusoy.com.tr

http://www.metroturizm.com.tr

http://www.kamilkoc.com.tr/

www.pamukkale.com.tr/

www.guneyakdeniz.com/

for shorter distances Turkey has vast system of inter city coaches. ...There are minibuses called dolmus, and you can find out the bus times at the otogar ( bus stations )

but for the cost and time of a bus ticket I would fly from Istanbul to denizli. Saves time and often the cost of a flight is comparable to the cost of a bus ticket

I've already booked a hotel at Pamukkale and Cappadocia . Which one is better ? Through booking or maybe just walk in to the hotel on the day I arrive there . And , I would like to buy the ticket bus through online , is that okay ? Or maybe I just buy the ticket over there ? But I'm worried if they bus ticket fully booked . From Istanbul (Bayrampasa) isnt it ?

<<<I would like to buy the ticket bus through online<<<

buying a bus ticket online can prove a bit difficult for a non-turkish person and most of the websites are in turkish ..but just follow the links

alos please read here and I posted

tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g293969-i367-k64…

just enter from (kalkis) and to (varis) and the date and then click on "Sefer".

then click on the times you want

on the right hand side pick your seats

then for Yolcu Adı ( add your names )

Cinsiyet - add your genders ( bay - male - Bayan - female )

and click devam ( continue )

then next page

Üye olmadan devam etmek için Lütfen ileşim bilgirenizi giriniz. ( add your mobile number or a turkish contact mobile number so they can send an SMS message )

below that add your credit card details

then click on the little bos that sayes ( Sözleşmeyi Okudum Kabul Ediyorum )

I agree to the above conditions..then click on the button ONAYLI to continue

or ask your hotel in antalya to help you and maybe they can buy tickets on your behaf and you can oick them up later.

hope that helps
