Ever heard of Cappadocia, it is in Turkey and it is the most magical place on earth.

I had seen pictures of Cappadocia before I arrived in Turkey, but I was not prepared for the magnitude of it all

When you visit a destination that is famous for its landscape, it is usually limited to a part of the city, or maximum the full city itself. But this is WAY more than that. It is more than 10 towns (or villages)! Sometimes weird can be truly beautiful. Cappadocia’s weird landscape is what makes it magical. Its strange beauty is unique and I doubt if you will ever see a place like this anywhere else on the planet.

Cappadocia has caves, fairy chimneys, underground cities and strange rock formations that will make you feel you are  on another planet. People actually lived in these caves and you can book yourself a cave hotel and sleep in one. I did too!

Cappadocia looks spectacular during the s golden hour, so you wouldn't want to miss even a single sunset and sunrise.  There are sunset spots all over Cappadocia and I list many of them on my Cappadocia Instagram spots post. Click on the above picture to see the location info.

Over the years, Goreme in Cappadoiia has emerged as a famous hot air balloon-ing destination.  Is it worth the hype? Completely! I have a post about hot air balloon ride in Cappadocia, click on the picture to read it.

Is Cappadocia safe for solo women travelers? Yes. I traveled to turkey as a solo woman traveler and loved every minute of my time in Cappadocia. The locals are very friendly and I never felt unsafe.
