You’ll feel like you’re living a fairy tale
Turkey – the country where East meets West, ancient meets modern, and everything magical comes together. You know those beautiful photos of hot air balloons rising high above rocky hills? That’s in Turkey. From Istanbul to the Lycian coastline, Turkey boasts plenty of incredible natural wonders and historic sites. No matter your interest and budget, you can find sights and activities that enchant you.
1. Watch the hot air balloons in Cappadocia
One of the most photographed sights in Turkey, Cappadocia looks straight out of a fairy tale. A unique way to explore the rocky landscape is from above, flying in one of the hot air balloons. But it can be pretty pricey. If you want to save some cash, watching the balloons float from the ground is not any less of an amazing and romantic experience. Staying in one of the region’s famous cave hotels gives you a great view right outside your hotel. Or, head out early and trek up to the Sunset Point or Panoramic Viewpoint in Goreme town.
