If you are in Mavisehir looking out to sea then the Greek islands that you can see are Agathonissi and Farmako (Phamakonisi). In Roman times Julius Ceaser was hold captured on the island of Farmako by kidnappers for 34 days.
On a good day you can see the islands of Samos to the North and to the west are Lipsi, Arki and Patmos, all part of the
Leros group.

Getting to Didim

It is very easy to get to Didim and Altinkum from Mavişehir; the dolmus takes about 25 minutes and costs 1.25 lira to Didim and 1.5 to Altinkum. In the Summer the dolmus leave Mavişehir centre about every 10 minutes, in the winter around 3 or 4 times an hour. You can also flag down a passing dolmus and just jump on it.

Getting to Istanbul and Ankara

The coach to Istanbul takes about twelve hours and costs around 50 Liras, the one from Mavisehir to Ankara takes around eight hours. In the summer the main mavişehir bus station has lots of offices open; in the winter you will need to go into Didim to book your transport.

Alternatively, if you book early it can be very economical to fly from Bodrum to Istanbul using pegasus airlines.

Getting to Sōke and Izmir

To get to Sōke stand opposite the main bus station (where the coaches go from). Buses go by about every 20 minutes to Sōke, and once an hour to Izmir (via Sōke). It costs about 5 lira to Sōke, and 12 to Izmir from Mavisehir. The bus goes past the outlet stalls just before Sōke (there is a Starbucks there too), just ask to be dropped off there. Sōke has a very good night market on a wednesday.
