    Can someone tell me how to travel from Istanbul to Canakkale to Selcuk and then from Selcuk back to Istanbul?

    Hello, If you would like to travel by plane, you can fly from Sabiha Gokcen Airport to Canakkale Airport. Also there is a new flight to Gokceada a big island close to Canakkale. But I am not sure if you can find a flight directly from Istanbul. For flight lists you can check http://bulucak.com/ (has an English link) for all local flights. Also you can check www.anadolujet.com and www.thy.com.tr for airlines companies that have flights. Istanbul-Canakkale flight takes only 1 hour and the cheapest ticket (for early bookings from Anadolu JET) is 60TL (~30Euros). If you want to take a bus, -as replied above- you can take buses from the bus terminal directly to Canakkale or Izmir. Istanbul-Canakkale takes ~6 hours by bus. From Canakkale to Selcuk, you should arrive first to Izmir and then you can take small buses or dolmus's to Selcuk from Izmir Bus Terminal. Izmir - Canakkale may take nearly 4-5 hours (~350km). From Selcuk to Istanbul, you can fly from Izmir to Istanbul (first by bus/dolmus from Selcuk to Izmir). There are a plenty of flights from Izmir to Istanbul. Or you can take a bus from Izmir to Selcuk. As ersavas stated above, there seems to be direct buses from Selcuk to Istanbul. Selcuk-Izmir dolmus's are also depart from main bus terminal in Izmir, the same terminal for intercity departures and arrivals. These are some bus companies between Canakkale - Istanbul: http://www.kamilkoc.com.tr http://www.truvaturizm.com/ http://www.metroturizm.com.tr Truva Turizm and Metro Turizm also have buses between Izmir-Canakkale. If you need more details just reply or send a message :) almost 8 years ago

    I am going to Rhodes at the end of July for 5 days. What do you recommend?

    Hello, First of all, if you are going for a nice beach then you should stay on the south coast of the island. The south coast has better beaches. If you like to be near the beach then you should be careful when choosing your hotel. Many hotels on the north side have a road between the hotel building and the beach. This is just what I do not like. I like hotels that are next to beach and have a private beach. The north coast beaches are not sandy. And the sea is nearly always wavy. And also the sea water is not crystal type water due to waves. The hotels generally are good. We stayed on Electra Palace on the north coast. It was next to the beach but a bit far from the city center. I suggest you to join the island trips from the city center. There is a train type tour that takes you to the close places for a half an hour trip. And also there trips that takes one day for a full island trip. This trip takes place only on som days. In our case it was on Tueasday and we missed it. There are buses to everywhere nearly. And the bus drivers announce every bus stop. People are lovely. If you are going for shopping to the city center, do not go between ~13-17pm since these hours are sieasta hours. If you can -and certainly do it- go to the west coast of the island where eagean and mediterranean seas meet. There is a sandy beach that divides both seas. It is beautiful to feel that division. Also you will see that eagean is very wavy whereas mediterranean has no waves. Also you can watch people doing a different kind of surf sport which is fun to watch. Swimming against the waves in that Eagean side beach is another fun thing. I do not suggest to go to other small islands daily tours. There is nothing. Really nothing. No good beaches, no place to sit. No fun things. It was bad for us to waste our two days in those island trips. Those are what I remember from our holiday two years ago. If I remember something extra, i will write those too. Have a nice holiday, about 8 years ago

    If I will go to Antalya from Ankara (Turkey), what kind of transportation can I use?

    Keren, There are two types of transportation: 1. Buses 2. Airlines It takes 7 hours from Ankara to Antalya by bus. And about one hour by plane. Yet, you should take into consideration the time you will waste from the city to the Ankara Esenboga Airport and then from Antalya Airport to the city centrum. In Ankara, the airport is away from the city. It takes -from city centrum to the airport- at least 45 minutes by shuttles/buses. By taxi, it will take about 20-30 minutes. By plane, it might take about at least 3 hours in total to arrive Antalya from Ankara. If you will take a bus to Antalya, you can check Ulusoy and Varan companies. They are more expensive then the rest. Kamil Koc, Pamukkale and some other bus companies will be cheaper when compared to Varan and Ulusoy. Here are the links: Airlines: Anadolujet Airlines[by Turkish Airlines]: http://www.anadolujet.com Pegasus: www.flypgs.com and one web site you can check all other airlines: www.bulucak.com Bus companies: www.kamilkoc.com.tr www.ulusoy.com.tr www.varan.com.tr www.pamukkaleturizm.com.tr Have a good time, about 8 years ago

    will it be safe to travel to turkey this year?

    As Phil stated, Turkey has a parliamentary democracy and the next elections will take place in June 2011-this year. Currently, the country is very much stable in terms of security and there is no demand of protests from the people. Also, the current political party is the highest candidate for winning the elections with no coalitions. Thus, the economy or the political situation will be more stable. And to point out one thing, Turkey is the only different in terms of regime/rule and politically stable country in the region. Yet again, as Phil stated above, there is no "safe" place or country. Do a research on places you want to travel on the net. Ask here for specific locations, get information and do your planning accordingly. over 8 years ago

    How can I get from Istanbul to the mud baths in Dalyan?

    A taxi from Dalaman Airport to Dalyan may cost very much for you since those taxis are very expensive. 5 kms cost a min of 15 dollars. Thus, from Dalaman Airport to Dalyan would cost you about 75 dollars. Instead I would suggest travelling by bus. There are buses from Istanbul to Mugla-Ortaca and sometimes some bus companies have services or direct buses to Dalyan. I would suggest Kamil Koc (www.kamilkoc.com.tr for online ticket sales) for a clean way for such a travel. over 8 years ago
