43 PHOTOS: The Beautiful Land of Cappadocia in Turkey

Cappadocia is a region in central Anatolia, Turkey that’s home to unforgettable natural wonders, intriguing history, and spectacular architecture. While we enjoyed how busy the streets of Istanbul were, we were glad to have slowed the pace down and enjoy the relaxed and comfortable region of Cappadocia.

Note: This is the hotel where we stayed in Cappadocia – Antique Terrace Suites in Goreme

We wanted to travel to this place specifically for the hot air balloon experience and we were also excited to stay in a cave hotel. So after spending a couple of days in Istanbul, we flew to Nevsehir Airport and took a shuttle ride to Goreme.
