im planning on going to crete for a week and then up through turkey to istanbul. then back to western europe probably by train stopping in various countries along the way. anyway, has anyone gone from crete to turkey and whats the best way to do it. im hoping to do it as cheaply as possible, and i thought a ferry would be the best option but there doesnt seem to be any direct ferrys. also is the transport any use in turkey?

hi there, this web site will show some departure points to Turkey.

They're arriving to Kuşadası It's nice to stay for a while but there are more close attractions in around parts.
Kadınlar Plajı is just 3-5 minutes with classical Turkish Minibus Dolmuş you'll find a lot of hostels hotels in there if you want to accomodate.
Kuşadası Değirmen is the right place to relax especially if you're older than 40 or a family ;)

You may go to Istanbul directly or by seeing İzmir and Çanakkale on your route. Prefer busses. Ulusoy and Varan are first class busses which are a bit expensive. Kamil Koç, Pamukkale, Nilüfer are good busses with resonble price. Others are avarage.

I can't suggest any exact hostel since I'm not a tourist.

Crete (Heraklion) to Rhodes (Rhodes) to Turkey (Bodrum) is what I believe to be the fastest and best way to get to Turkey. I don't know much about Turkey so I won't attempt to say anything else other than getting to the coast
