    Minibus

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Selcuk is a good base to see Ephesus... and also Pamukkale (Cotton Castle).

    There are minibuses that operates on a group tour. You can always ask your hotel if they know of anyone going as a group or a tour bus to Pamukkale, so if you're an individual or small group of 2 to 4 people, then you could go along with others to save on transport to and from Pamukkale.

    There are also people doing it the other way around - staying in Pamukkale and from there they will take a minibus to explore Ephesus and come back to Pamukkale before evening.

    I guess, I would prefer staying in Selcuk rather than Pamukkale, Selcuk has more to offer and bigger and livelier than Pamukkale - my opinion.

    The bus leaves at around 9AM to Pamukkale and leaves for Selcuk 3 to 3:30PM.

    Bus - to your next destination

    by June.b Updated Jan 28, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Selcuk has its small bus station - not as huge as in big cities like Izmir or Istanbul, but very functional.

    The moment you arrive and got of the bus, several guys will approach you offering accommodations, tour packages, transport around Ephesus and of course the bus on to your next destination when you're done with Ephesus.

    Pamukkale bus is running direct from Selcuk to Istanbul just before midnight, we should have taken that but then we decided to stop-over Izmir to visit a friend we've met on the way to Selcuk, so we took a small bus from Selcuk to Izmir - a two-hour drive.

    We took Pamukkale Bus from Izmir on the way to Istanbul.

    Good service, huge bus, efficient. In fact, i guess I like the Pamukkale bus more than the Metro Bus - they're similar but the Metro Bus tends to heat up (the bus heater during winter) and I sweat a lot inside the bus ... on a winter evening.

    We left our heavy luggages at the Pamukkale Bus office at the huge Izmir Bus Terminal to have a whole day tour of Izmir, they have a luggage room.

    Taxi

    by June.b Written Jan 28, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Such a small charming city, walking is the best option.

    However, the only time we did took a taxi was when we were offered by this nice taxi guy at the foot of Ephesus hills, when we were just about to start our walking tour.

    I consider it a bargain - YTL40 for the 3 of us - taking us to the House of Virgin Mary up the mountain, the Cave of Seven Sleepers, and the Ephesus down the hill, ending up at St. John Basilica.

    I could have taken the contact of the taxi guy, well, as usual I forgot.

    Then again, I guess, most taxi drivers in Selcuk are honest and helpful, especially the senior ones.

    St. John Basilica - Selcuk

    The access to Selcuk by road is very convenient, as the town is on Aydin-Izmir highway.

    Buses to Izmir, the third biggest city of Turkey located at 75km from Selcuk, are leaving every 15 minutes, while Kusadasi, located at 18km from Selcuk, can be reached using the minibuses.

    Izmir Adnan Menderes Airport is located at 60km from Selcuk, while the Ephesus Airport is at 3km far from Selcuk, but is used only by small planes and short distance flights.

  • New Motorway to Kusadasi

    by Englishbrian Written Oct 20, 2005

    As from end of October 2005 there will be a very fast road from Selcuk to Kusadasi.
    The road at the moment is just a single file road, but they are making it up to Motorway standards.

    Please be carefull on this road as the Turkish people tend to drive very fast and reckless.

    When visiting Ephesus you have to pull out to the middle of road into the fast lane ane wait until it is safe to cross. Be aware of fast cars comming from behind.

    getting to Selchuk

    by Malecka Written Aug 29, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since a lot of people from Macedonia travel to Turkey there is a direct line Skopje-Kushadasi offered during the summer. I assume there are buses traveling from Bulgaria as well.
    It is an option if you are PSYCHOLOGIVCALLY prepared to travel 18 hours. And then from Kushadasi there is a dolmush to Selchuk.

    Ali, on the way to Bodrum Airport

    Another option is a flight to Bodrum, well check out what I have written on my pages about Turkey – Bodrum airport is like 40 km from Bodrum so... you go on the main road and just wait for a bus to Izmir and get on it and MAKE IT CLEAR you need to get off in Selchuk, or wait for a dolmush to Milas, then Milas – Soke, then Soke – Kushadasi and then Kushadasi – Selchuk. Trust me, it is an adventure on its own.

    To Selchuk

    Maria in a dolmus

    Plane to Izmir and then a bus to Selchuk would be ideal. I mean, there are buses basically every 40 minutes between these two places and the service is great. Fantastic in fact. Buses all have air-conditioning (indispensable for the Turkish summer days), they give you some cologne for refreshing yourself, they offer you water. Price of the ticket for this distance was... 5 turkish lira (one way) per person.
    At the bus station in Selchuk you can see that it is ONE PARTICULAR COMPANY (don’t remember the name, sorry) that takes you to Izmir and then from the bus station they provide shuttle service to the center of Izmir. For going back to Selchuk you go to the place in the center of Izmir where you were left and they take you (for the same amount of money) to the bus station and then to Selchuk. Phenomenal. Will explain a bit more on my Izmir pages.

    The otogar (busstation) in Selcuk is just by the centre of town so it is easy to walk to most of the pensions. But some pensions will pick you up (they allready have a person at the otogar looking for customers comming with the buses).
    It is a small otogar and if you are going a long distance you will probably have to change in a bigger city.

    From Pamukkale (via Denizli) to Selcuk I paid 10 000 000 TL.
    The bus to Izmir takes about an hour and in August 2003 I paid 4 000 000 TL for the ticket.

    From Selcuk to Sirince

    The dolmus to Sirince.

    I was totally confused by the different forms of buses and dolmuses in Turkey; maybe there are too many bus companies.

    The pic shows the dolmus I took to get to Sirince. The journey took me 0.5 hour and costed 1.5 Million Turkish Lira.

    If you are getting to Sirince from Selcuk, remember to check the schedule of the dolmus for your way back. The last dolmus departed at 5.30p.m. at Sirince during my visit.

    From Pamukkale to Selcuk

    by backpackerbaby Updated Jan 16, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ticket selling office at Pamukkale.

    I found this only bus company selling tickets covering a whole journey from Pamukkale to Selcuk. The whole journey costs 15 Million Turkish Lira and includes a dolmus journey from Pamukkale to Denizli and then a bus journey to Selcuk.

    It takes around 20 minutes and 3.5 hours for travelling from Pamukkale to Denizil and from Denizli to Selcuk respectively.

    Selçuk can be reached by air either via the Adnan Menderes Airport at Izmir, or by Selcuk -Efes Airfield. The ports at Kusadasi and izmir facilitate sea travel. Because of its locaation on a major highway, the bus connections are frequent and direct.
