Why you should visit...

Cappadocia

One of the true unique gems of the world, Cappadocia is a geological oddity, wrapped in a bizarre history, surrounded by natural beauty. It’s kind of a fairytale place that needs to be seen in person to truly be understood.

Why We Love It:

Hhhhhmmmm where to start with wonderfully weird Cappadocia. Maybe that’s the best place to start…Cappadocia is kinda weird but it’s also quite wonderful. One of the true unique gems of the world, Cappadocia is a geological oddity, wrapped in a bizarre history, surrounded by natural beauty. It’s kind of a fairytale place that needs to be seen in person to truly be understood.

You have a couple of different options for exploring this alien-like lunarscape but we recommend you do both. First, enjoy it all close-up on one of the many hiking trails. Then, view it all from a distance on a hot air balloon ride. Either way, just make sure to take your time and explore the area thoroughly because you’re not likely to see anything like it again.

One of the best things about Cappadocia is that you almost certainly have to go through Istanbul to get there and Istanbul is one of our favorite cities in the world. Add on a few extra days and make your trip an awesome week of Istanbul, Cappadocia, and maybe one more of Turkey’s highlights.
