Distance between Bodrum and Various Locations

The distance between Bodrum and many popular vacation destinations is quite short. This means more freedom and flexibility for a traveller. The towns and touristic locations in the vicinity introduce new insights by leading you to more cultural, historical and geographical discoveries which will be remembered forever.

I have been travelling around Bodrum for years to see new places, to meet new people and to experience their life style. So far I have learned one thing for certain: crystal blue waters of the Aegean Sea and the hot Mediterranean sun are just the parts of the whole experience.

Do you really want to see Ephesus?  Buy a daily tour package or rent a car, you will be there in two hours. What about to visit Apollo Temple and see where priestess of Apollo lived? In less than 2 hours, you could be there in Didim. Forget about the pool on your hotel, isn’t it better to relax on the mystic water terraces of Hierapolis? Did you know this UNESCO World Heritage Site is just 3 hours away from Bodrum?

The unique location of Bodrum Peninsula on the south-western coast of Turkey offers quite exciting opportunities to visit many other interesting places. That’s why I decided to start working on a distance chart which you can find below.

Take the driving times as an indicator because they can drastically change due to traffic conditions. For example Gumbet is only 4 kilometres away and normally you can drive there in minutes. If you are caught in a traffic jam on a summer weekend, you may need to spend more than half an hour. I’d prefer to walk but remember; there is a challenging steep on the way.

Months after publishing the above table, I was pretending I am travelling the world with Google Earth. Then I wondered how close Bodrum is to those beautiful locations. I measured air distances with Ruler Tool and came up with the table below.

I am also working on a Bodrum map covering all the towns and points of interests. I think using both the map and the chart above can be very handy before and during your visit. Meanwhile please let me know if you need anything else that can help you more.

As I always do, I kindly ask you to use the data I provide for planning and information purposes only. Check it with other resources like travel agencies for more accuracy. It would keep both you and me on the safe side.
