TOP 5 for couples in Kapadokya
Written by Lea
Kapadokya – unique landscape, perfect romantic getaway from vibrant Istanbul. You can take a cheap flight from a hectic metropole and land within one hour in this stunning and peaceful place. It is said Kapadokya is one of the top 10 world places to visit. Here is our top 5 you can do here.
1. Balloon flight
The most popular activity in Kapadokya is undoubtedly a balloon flight. Absolutely stunning view, extraordinary feeling to fly above unique Kapadokya landscape. Only the price is a bit overrated, 150 Eur per one person per flight, which takes about 1 hour. But that feeling up there…
2. Scooter ride
Great way how to explore surroundings is to hire a scooter and explore the area with your love on the backseat holding you tight. We spend all day riding a bike, travelling over 30 kilometres and at the end of a day, our tank was still full (!) Crazy! Scooter is with no doubts, the most comfortable and effective way of travelling on short distances. Ask where to rent a bike at your hostel’s information desktop or you can find some by yourself walking down the road.
3. Visiting Penis Valley
A place just outside of the Göreme city, also known as a valley of love. Do you know why?
(with locals living in Göreme)
Well, there not such as a supermarket or a shopping mall. I am talking about searching for unique stuff from local craftsmen you can buy for your love (and yourself). You will find plenty of popular blue eyes (on the picture) on every corner really. According to locals, this blue eye talisman is supposed to protect you. But do search for craftsmen, they have shops full of unique pieces, no “Chinese” manufacture, one-piece originals, such as hand-made and hand-painted ceramics.
5. Romantic dinner
The most probably you will not miss Turkish sesame bread, popular ‘köfte’ (meatballs) and original kebab. Buon appetite!
