Distances from Bodrum to Other Destinations

You come to Bodrum to relax, have fun, and enjoy the one-of-a-kind Aegean atmosphere, leaving home thousands of kilometres behind. Would it not be amazing if you could double, even triple the experience by just travelling a couple of kilometres more?

The Aegean coast of Turkey is also known as Turkish Riviera. For thousands of years, various civilizations rose and fell on these lands, leaving us a deep-rooted history. If you are already in Bodrum, it also means that you are close to other jaw-dropping destinations around.

The below table shows distances between Bodrum town centre and other towns and villages in the peninsula. There are also average travelling times from Bodrum to given locations based on Google Maps’ estimations.

The travel times may change drastically based on the season. The data in the table were taken in July when trips take longer than usual due to traffic conditions. For example, a minibus ride from Bodrum to Ortakent usually takes around 15 minutes in winters. However, according to the July data, it takes twice as much.

Distances from Bodrum to Other Popular Touristic Destinations

Travelling within the Bodrum Peninsula is easy by using the public transport. However, if you want to explore further, making some travel arrangements may be necessary.

Would you like to visit Ephesus or The Virgin Mary’s House? Driving from Bodrum to Selcuk takes around two hours. You can visit them both and you may still have enough time for wine tasting in Sirince, which is close by and one of the most beautiful mountain villages in Turkey.

What about a day trip to the Apollo Temple in Didyma? On your way back, you can take a glimpse at the history by visiting the ancient cities of Piriene and Miletos, before the open buffet dinner at your hotel back in Bodrum.

Have you ever considered how would it feel to soak in the mystic water terraces of Pamukkale? It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is 3 and a half hours away from Bodrum. Just check the official website of the Hierapolis Archaeological Site before leaving.

As you can see, the unique location of the Bodrum Peninsula on the south-western coast of Turkey offers quite exciting opportunities to visit many other world renown interesting places.

If your schedule is tight, I would recommend renting a car to save time. But you can still take a bus from Bodrum Intercity Bus Terminal or sign up for a daily tour. Please note that the daily tours are usually available only in the peak season.

From Bodrum to International Locations

Months after I first published this article, I was on one of my virtual travels through Google Earth. I found the ruler tool from the menu and started to measure air distances from Bodrum to some of the cities in the world for no other reason than curiosity. In the end, I came up with the table below.

I do not see any practical use for you, but since I did it anyway, why not share?
