How to travel to Turkey?

There are plenty of travelling ways to get into and out of Turkey by air, sea, rail and bus. There are international airports at Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Antalya and some of the Mediterranean resorts. Turkish Airlines has direct flights from Istanbul to three dozen European cities and New York, as well as the Middle East, North Africa, Bangkok, Karachi, Singapore and Tokyo. Departure tax is about US$12.00 but is normally included with the ticket price. By train, the daily Bosfor Ekspresi links Budapest, Bucharest, Belgrade and Sofia to Istanbul. Major European cities such as Frankfurt and Vienna are also well serviced by Turkish bus lines. The overnight Dostluk Ekspresi links Istanbul to Thessaloniki and is becoming a popular option with travellers. Travelling by train and bus to Syria and Iran, and by bus to Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan is possible. Marmara Lines runs car ferries from Cesme to Ancona and Brindisi from late March to late October. Private ferries run between Turkey’s Aegean coast and the Greek islands. It is easy to travel by Turkish Airlines. It links all major cities, including the busy Istanbul-Ankara corridor. Buses go everywhere around Turkey frequently, cheaply and usually comfortably. Trains have a hard time competing with long-distance buses for speed, but the sleeping-car trains linking Istanbul, Izmir and Ankara are good value. If you’re driving around Turkey like Fethiye, Marmaris, Didim, Kusadasi, Cappadocia and Pamukkale , you’ll find mechanical services easy to find and relatively cheap but dealing with impatient drivers may be more of a problem. Driving in cities should be avoided – traffic is terrible and parking is very difficult at especialy Istanbul. Dolmuşes (shared taxis) are a good option for short trips. Car ferries can saves a lot of driving – there’s a useful hydrofoil from Istanbul to Yalova, for Bursa when driving to south of Turkey ( Fethiye, Marmaris, Didim, Kusadasi, Cappadocia and Pamukkale).
