From Antalya to Olympos
After 2 nights in Antalya, I left for Olympos. I took the minibus of Bati Antalya bus company from Antalya's main bus terminal. Fare is TL10. Th minibus dropped me off at the only cafe/restaurant along the highway from where I've waited for half an hour or so for the dolmush (van) that dropped me off right in front of my pension in Olympos at TL5.
The same dolush + minibus took me from the pension in Olympos to Antalya where I catch another bus to Fethiye.

To get to Olympos from Antalya, go to the otogar (bus station). There are no buses from the Antalya Airport, so you will have to catch a taxi to the Otogar (bus station). This will cost about TL 35 Million / 22 Euro. Look for a dolmus (mini bus) showing an ‘Olympos in the front window. Tell the driver that you are going to Olympos, and they will drop you off at a dolmus stop on the main highway. From there, you can catch a shuttle down the hill about every hour...
