Buharkent is a town and a district of Aydın Province in the Aegean region of Turkey, 86 km east of the city of Aydın, on the road and the railway line to Denizli.

The area is in the valley of the Büyük Menderes River with mountains to the north including the 1724m Karlıkdede. The district is known for its hot springs and geothermal energy, indeed Turkey's first geothermal power station was built here in 1984.
