Bodrum to Izmir

Good morning all!
We were thinking about visiting Izmir for the day while we are out next month. Can we get a Havas bus directly from the bus station in Bodrum? Is it about 1 1/2 hr journey? Any suggestions on the 'not to be missed' list for Izmir?
Last year we did so much travelling including 3 days in Istanbul so this year we decided to go AI and have a lazy couple of weeks, however I've still got the bug for exploring albeit just up the coast.
I half regret not planning time to visit Cappadocia..........another time!
Would really appreciate input.
Thanks

Ps. Beautiful morning in London

Re: Bodrum to Izmir

Many different coach companies go from Bodrum bus station to Izmir -journey time Bodrum to Izmir is 3hours and the bus station in Izmir is on the outskirts of the city so you have to transit in with a service bus.

Re: Bodrum to Izmir

You take a bus - Havas is for the airport. From Bodrum you can take buses to anywhere :-) Izmir takes a couple of hours by bus.

Thanks for the replies! Oh I didn't realise it was 3hrs away, that's a bit far for a day visit to a city

Did this Bodrum-Izmir journey in 2005. We had to change buses en route but I recall it being very pleasant as tea, cake and water were served (all included in ticket price) and a movie was shown.

Re: Bodrum to Izmir

Yes carol I guess it probably is a comfortable trip. I did an overnighter a few years ago but 3-4 hrs for a day trip is too time consuming. I'm wondering if an overnight stay in Izmir would be worthwhile?? Is there a lots to see in the city?

Re: Bodrum to Izmir

3hrs not too bad but we would still need to get into centre of the city. Is there much to see in the centre... Do you think it's worth our while going for the day?
