Selcuk

An ideal base camp for exploring the Aegean coastline, Selcuk draws big tourist crowds due to its proximity to the ancient city of Ephesus.

And it doesn't end there: explore the ancient world of Ancient City of Ephesus, surround yourself with nature on Troy Tours, look for gifts at La Tulip Art Gallery, and ponder the design of Trajan's Fountain.

To find ratings, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Selcuk day trip app.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Selcuk is an approximately 17.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Selcuk.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Wed) to allow time to drive to Pamukkale.
