As Ranked by BilbyandBear
Destination: Cappadocia, Turkey
Interesting website for the city: Cappadociaturkey.net
Is it easy to navigate around? Yes, it is a small city however the surrounding nature is vast. 2
Hostels and Hotels (few, many, tons): Plenty of good options - well catered for visiting tourists. 2
Best part of the city? The rock formations all around the city such as Rose Valley. Star Wars supposedly had some locations filmed here and its not surprising given how out-of-the-world this place looks.
Interesting Fact: The most famous rock formations are described as chimneys due to their shape which is largely formed by the wind.
Is it a good travel destination for young adventures? Yes, there are a lot of good hiking opportunities for you to get immersed within this amazing scenery. 2
Climate: It snows in winter, so it is better to go before it does.
Would you live there forever? No, as it is far from many other places in Turkey, not to mention the modern world. It is right down the middle of the country.
Any funny experiences whilst you were there? Not funny, but absolutely amazing. You can take a hot air balloon ride at the break of dawn. As you go up in the air you see what must be 100's of other balloons in the sky observing the same beautiful view. If you're not looking below at the rock scenery you can admire the many balloons floating alongside you.
