Turkey: Why You Should Experience Cappadocia’s Hot Air Balloon Ride

Visting Turkey​

I was longing to visit Turkey. My first stop was Istanbul, where I visited the Hagia Sophia and wandered around town. However, what really excited me was Cappadocia. Its distinctive moon-like terrain, with peculiar rock structures known as fairy chimneys, fascinated me.

Turkey: Istambul and Cappadocia

In Cappadocia, people have been using the region’s soft volcanic rock for ages to create dwellings, cave churches, monasteries, and even deep subterranean towns. Although most are now used for tourists, some people still live in these cave shelters today.

Cappadocia Air Ballon Experience

One of the most popular activities in this area is riding in a hot air balloon due to the region’s distinctive beauty. Hundreds of vibrant balloons are frequently seen in the sky in the early morning, just before daybreak. That experience was exactly what I was looking for, and I must say, it is an absolutely breathtaking experience.
