Turkey planning questions - 3 week trip

Jump to last reply

Its time for my almost-annual request for help for a September trip. This year Turkey!

We are two active adults who prefer to travel on our own than follow-the-tour leader. Here's what we are thinking and would love advice from those who know more than us! Especially with the Turq coast car rental etc...

Arrive Istanbul - 4 nights
fly to Cappadocia - 4 nights (or 3??) want to see usual sites, also get some hikes in.
fly to Antalya - or is it better to rent car in Cappadocia and drive to the coast?? rent a car and explore the coastal towns,etc. (Where to stay? Is 5 nights enough? Dont' mind hopping around different towns. want to kayak, day trip gulet, hike. Which towns and how many nights each??)
drop off car in a ferry port town
ferry to Greek island 5 nights
ferry back, bus or train to Selkuc 1 night ?? have no info on this... how do we get Bodrum or other town to selkuc?
bus to Izmir - ferry/train to Istanbul for last night

How does this sound? Should we stay in an area longer or less? I would like to know the transportation options - where to drop the rental car (Bodrum or other ferry port town) and how we get around to Selkuc when we return. We have not booked flights from US yet - seems more expensive to return via Athens than head back to Istanbul, which also lets us route back and see Ephesus.
This is a duplicate post - i forgot to tag it for Turkey

Also... lastly - my husband is concerned about safety and threats. Anyone cautious about traveling there at this time?
Any and all advice is welcome. Thanks Fodorites!
