I loved my entire experience in Cappadocia, Turkey (Turkiye). I felt very safe there. I recommend bringing hiking boots and wearing clothes that you are ok with getting dusty at times. I am so happy I stayed in a cave hotel in Cavusin Village, rather than Goreme (which is close) because the hot air balloons took off right by my hotel. The view was spectacular each morning. I loved the family run hotel and the breakfast was wonderful each morning. One of my favorite things I did (outside of the hot air balloon ride) was riding an ATV at sunset. It was one of the coolest experiences chasing the sunset throughout the rugged and unique landscape of Cappadocia. I did day tours as well, so I could visit all of the regions of Cappadocia. I went in September when the weather is perfection in Turkey. Highly recommend buying some bottles of rose oil when there. I didn’t realize Turkey is known for their roses and the oil (for hair, skin and face) is so good! Bring a jacket in September as the temperature is chilly in the morning and in the evenings. I went to Cappadocia with a friend of mine and it was one of the most memorable trips! I loved the small village of Cavusin where I stayed and the local restaurants and shops. Goreme is much larger and packed with many food and shop options. Definitely stay in a cave hotel if you can!

Cappadocia is incredibly rich in culture, history, and the food is good. It's easy to get around the city, the people are nice, and most of them speak English. I highly recommend spending 2-3 days in Cappadocia, it's really safe there. I did a hot air balloon ride and it was my favorite part of the trip.

I was there for two times. First in 2020 and then in 2022. I took the most hyped hot air balloon ride in 2020. It was quite affordable that time. Next time I visited I couldn’t afford it . I loved cappadocia in general. I tried car ride (forgot the specific name) through the desert with my Erusmus group. It was so much fun bcz that was the first I drove . The ceramic workshop and the. Shops are always fascinating for me. I have been there both times and bought multiple items. Food wasn’t very interesting to me compared to other cities in Turkey . But the ambience is so different than any other city. My visit there is a life time experience for me and for my friends too. If I ever get a chance , I would go there again and again. Highly recommended for travel enthusiasts like me specially girls.

I didn't experience any security issues because I went on a tour to Cappadocia. It was a day trip. The balloon tours, which hadn't been done for two months, happened on the day we were there by chance, and it was the most beautiful view of my life. You can explore for an hour with a safari tour, but I didn't participate because it was a bit expensive. Other than that, you can enjoy the aesthetics of a city with unspoiled charm by strolling through the streets of Ürgüp for hours.
