well, i fly from london to SAW by easyjet, then stay 2 days in Istanbul, and will be taking night bus to Goreme, for Capadocia

it seems like too far from Goreme to SAW, so i got to take dosmetic flight from Kayseri to SAW and the fares is cheeap, but the flight from Kayseri to SAW is early at 8am, so i got to be at the airport 2 hours ago, what is the cheapest way to get to Kayseri from Goreme?

there is another night flight but my flight back to london is in afternoon, so i have to get the morning flight

i have selected a hostel for my stay in Goreme, but not yet booking untill i make sure every transportation matter, the hostel is Backpackers Cave Hostel Yasin, i couldnt get any contact from it over internet, so i come here and get help from you guys

thanks...

hey there ; I have stayed in cave hotels hostels in goreme they are cheap and very cozy I am sure you ll enjoy it. for the transpaortation ı can tell you that you can bargain about anything in Turkey. so when you are in goreme ask the hostel owner if he can manage a taxi or other car that give you lift to airport. you tell him how much you want to spend on it and he/she will tel you the possibilities. sometimes there are local people who go to same direction and even take you there for free. dont hesitate to ask around.

thanks mate for reply
i got the reply from the shuttle bus co, no prob to my initial plan though..
but now my prob is... my plan might change... coz i may be getting longer off day
i think 7 days, so i am planning to visit few more places

well, my first thought was from gokcen airport, same day, i go to Denizli for Pamukkale, then Goreme for Capadocia, then Karabuk for Safranbolu & Asmara (a small fish village), then to Istanbul, then back to Gokcen and back to london

but i couldnt find a way from SAW airport to Denizli, no flight connection too
so i think of another way round from the route i mentioned above, but the prob still denizli to gokcen airport
should i give up tis? i am really interested in Pamukkale...

well, i mean with direct transportation, coz even 7 days arent enough for me for these places as dun want to spend too much time on transferring from point to point, it will be very rush...

ok let me tell you about the locations SAW is on asian part of istanbul it is almost outskirts of the city there you can go to atasehir which is commo stop of trans city buses. you can find a bus to denizli it will take around 7 hours not more. or you can go back to ataturk aioport which is on the eruopean side. and it takes around 2 hrs from SAW there you will finde a flight to denizli.

about skipping I cant tell you anything man, both goreme and pamukkale are among the most unique places in Turkey. ı want you to see them both.

My recommendation would be to take the bus from Istanbul to Cappadocia, just like you plan to do. You can buy the tickets in every travel agency in Istanbul Sultanahmet area. Nevsehir Bus Co. would be the best to take, they are the ones who go directly to Cappadocia. Nevsehir is a small town that acts as transport hub for Cappadocia, to get anywhere in the area you usually have to change buses in Nevsehir. Most buses are run by Nevsehir Bus Co.

For going back there are regular buses to Kayseri from Nevsehir (once every hour or so), because Kayseri is the next big city.

It should not be a problem to arrange for transport to Kayseri airport in Göreme, there is a decent travel agency in Göreme that regularly sells flight tickets to Istanbul, IIRC they also arrange transport to Kayseri airport from Göreme. Making an educated guess you might have to take a bus to Kayseri otogar (=central bus station) and from there catch a taxi or minibus to the airport.

You can find more info about transport to and from Nevsehir here:

BTW, when I was faced with a similar problem I simply took the bus from Göreme to Istanbul. There were several night buses to Istanbul, I got off at Harem Otogar and then connected from there to SAW. I was at Harem Otogar at 8 am, plenty of time to get to SAW for my flight at 2 pm.

thanks mate, i already get 9 days in turkey from 15 march :P
which i think i have enough time to these places... but this few days were busy for fulltime and part time job
have not much time to do research

i just noticed there is bus service from Istanbul to Denizli, the bus agency calls Varan Torizim something
i havent look into it... and i just emailed them to ask about if there is night bus

so now my thoughts is Gokcen - Istanbul - Denizli (Pamukkale) or from Istanbul to Izmir by ferry+train then Denizli then Goreme.... another experience of trip

any one can give me suggestion route?

but the route after that need to be confimed yet , coz at the end i need to go back to SAW airport, every places are so far away from there.. poor easyjet......
