We visited this village because it is original buildings, roads and not changed for very long time. We drove with a car it is not very close to Bursa city center. You could use the minibus for public transportation. There are a lots of small...More
It's a small historical village and its roots go back to Ottoman Empire. Now local people sell local products and present breakfast in many village houses. It still preserves its natural environment. It can be a nice visit for a weekend to take photos and...More
A short drive out of Bursa, is this centuries old UNESCO World Heritage site. The village is situated on the side of a mountain, and the streets are made of old cobble stones. This made for slow going, but makes it all the better to...More
Cumalıkızık is a really nice village with lots of small houses...You can have your traditional Turkish breakfast on your ground table...It is very nice to walk between tiny village houses...Lastly, in 2000, it took a place in UNESCO’s World History Heritage Candidate List with a...More
If you have wheels and are visiting the Bursa region don’t miss this village. It’s rustic, old and atmospheric. Full of rather tacky shopping opportunities but plenty of atmosphere. Lots of coffee and snack opportunities. Highly recommend the house museum restored with support from a...More
The town was nice. The old houses are great for photograph. There are lots of mini restaurants for breakfast. But it is as crowded as hell. We couldn't find a place to park the car and waited in car for 30 mins. Better to visit...More
It's the best place to having the breakfast from the 9 AM with local family, they are very very friendly people. Then take a tour around the old houses near of you. You can buy some wooden toys and hand made antiques.
If you are slightly interested in history and authentic places, you have to visit Cumalikizik! Its history goes back to the Ottoman Empire's foundation period and the texture of the village has been well protected. The beautiful colors, stone-covered walkways, small stores and kind people...More

Probably the cheapest and easiest way for a solo traveler without a car is to get by bus to "Istanbul Otogari" located near the old city in Fatih area (every 5 minutes), and from there take inter-city bus to bursa (every 3 hours). Times I got from rome2rio website. I am not sure of frequency during late nights.
If you are driving, you can drive from Ataturk to Asian Istanbul via the new underwater crossing (accessible from Kennedy cadisi), continue to reach "Osman Gazi Bridge" then cross over to Yalova, and then continue to Bursa. This is the fastest way I can think of.
If you are driving, you can go to Yenikapi Ferry station just east of Old City on Kennedy Cadisi, and take a fast ferry to Mudainya near Bursa (car can be taken with you), and then drive to Bursa. From Ataturk to Yenikapi it will take about 30 to 1 hour depending on traffic. There are three trips daily, morning around 10:30, afternoon 2:30, and evening 7:00 (check schedules at ido web site). Fast ferry will take about 2 hours. From Mudayna to Bursa is about 45 to 1 hour depending on traffic and exact location in Bursa.
You can also go from Yenikapi to Yalova, and then drive to Bursa. Check ido for schedule.
If schedules work for you, you can take taxi to Yenikapi, then go as pedestrian in fast ferry, and then taxi from Mudanya to Bursa.
I have not used the bus route, so I can not comment on that. I have used the fast ferry several times, and it is a wonderful trip -- if it fits in your schedule do not miss it.

Ill tell you what i did i stayed in osmagazi in the center of Bursa and from there you can take a bus to Uludag Telefrik and the ottoman village Cumalikizik. Now i would advise not to rent because public transports in turkey are easier just write the name of the place on google maps and check out the bus numbers you need to hop on. I honestly took a taxi to cumalikzik “costs 15-18$”from osmangazi early in the morning and went back to osmangazi bu bus from there. As for Uludag took a bus about 10-15 minutes. Its not worth renting a car for 2 days and really the public transportation is easy in turkey just use google maps or moovit app. Hope i helped you.
I wish i have paid attention for hotels in cumalikzik but didnt come to mind.
Have a great trip
