    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

    Is it easy to take the overnight bus from Fethiye to Cappadocia, Turkey?

    Hello, You are right. It takes about 12 hours. I would recommend you to take the latest bus towards the evening or night. Because there are many cities and bus stops between Cappadocia and Fethiye and the buses stops and gets new passengers on many cities. But the late buses which travels mostly at night will have less stops. And that will be more comfortable. There is a 7.30pm bus instead of 4.30pm. But if you would like to see some cities on daylight, then 4.30pm is better of course. ++ You can select your own seat. And I would recommend you to request a seat in front of the bus. Thus you will have a view in front. That is less boring :) ++ I only found METRO TURIZM (http://www.metroturizm.com.tr/) has buses between two cities. These buses are normal buses. Have chair screens/tv/ and also wi-fi in the bus. However, the tv and movies will be in Turkish mostly. ++ The ticket price is about 60TL which makes in current days 20-25 Euros. ++ METRO TURIZM (http://www.metroturizm.com.tr/) has online ticket sales. Use this address for browsing the site in English: http://www.metroturizm.com.tr/en/index.htm Also you can consult any Metro Turizm agency in Fethiye and buy your ticket directly from their agencies. Whichever is easiest for you. Write me if you need any help on tickets or more details. Have a nice trip and holiday... sas almost 6 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

    Hi, i'm traveling to istambul at the end of April for 5 days and i want to focus on local food . Any advice, invitation or anything?

    I would recommend you to find special restaurants that focus on local cuisines of cities in Turkey. For example, Antakya/Hatay cuisine, Gaziantep/Sanliurfa cuisine, Adana/Mersin cuisine, etc. There are restaurants that only focus on these cuisines as well as other cities' cuisines in Turkey. You can find these places on Yelp in English, and neredeneyenir.net and mekanist.com in Turkish. If you could give some specific details, I can suggest you specific restaurant names and addresses in Istanbul where you can taste local foods from special cuisines.

    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

    I wanna rent a car in dalaman airport. What a good company? Not expensive with not old car!!! Thanks!!!

    I would suggest to rent your car from known companies in order not to experience any problems. Some of the known companies are: Hertz, Sixt, Avis and Budget. These have offices nearly in every airpot in Turkey. For example, a new model of Peugeot 301 or Hyundai Accent Blue is daily 70 Turkish Liras which makes about 30 Euros (SIXT). Even here this price is very reasonable. Here are the Car rental web pages for Dalaman Airport: Sixt: http://www.sixt.com.tr/dalaman-havalimani-dis-hatlar HERTZ: http://www.hertz.com.tr/ BUDGET: http://www.budget.com.tr/car-hire/Dalaman-Arac-Kiralama-Budget.htm (Click th top right corner for changing language) AVIS: http://www.avis.com.tr/English.aspx Have a nice trip, sas about 6 years ago

    Bodrum or Antalya for a first time beech holiday in Turkey?

    This is directly depends on your beach preferences. Even if you prefer Antalya, Antalya has various towns and beaches differ in terms of depth, sandy beaches, hotels quality, etc. If you do not like the water/sea get deep in the first 3-4 meters, then you should not prefer west cost of Antalya (Kemer, Tekirova, Camyuva, etc.). This side all has sandy beach but the sea is deeper than 5-6 meters in the first 5 meters. For sandy and not deep (at least for the 15-20 meters) beaches, you should prefer Alanya, Side, and maybe Belek which are on the east coast of Antalya. Bodrum beaches do not get very much deep in the first 4-5 meters like Antalya. I would suggest you to choose a good hotel since the best hotels have the best beaches. But if you do not like the sea gets deeper than you should make it sure by asking your hotel preferred. Water temparature will differ 1-2 celcius between Bodrum and Antalya and Antalya sea water is always 1-2 celcius higher than Bodrum. about 7 years ago

    Trip To Turkey, More Questions

    You can take a look at these crowd photos from Istanbul https://www.google.com.tr/search?q=istanbul+kalabalik&hl=en&tbo=u&tbm=isch&source=univ&sa=X&ei=cPnjUKXgDeSB4AT04YHoCA&biw=1920&bih=939&sei=g_njUK-WIojLswbovIHQAg And here is a more specific photo: http://www.e-baris.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/haber-istiklal-istanbul.jpg This is again from Istanbul. Where are you planning to be? Which city? This is a bit depends on the city. But generally you will not have any problem in major cities. You can dress as usual. Of course, if you do not want to attract all eyes on you, then you should dress a bit more conservative :-) For religious places/mosques: heads covered with a piece of cloth (mantilla). No footwear inside mosques. And also it would be better not to have "low-necked" dresses. Better: all arms, legs are covered for respect. You can write specific places and cities for specific answers. Enjoy your trip and journey, over 6 years ago
