Is your bucket list to sail through the sky in a hot air balloon or just simply enjoy some of the wonders of what mother nature could offer in different parts of the world? Lucky for you, graphic designer, Lucas and his wife, Jessi embarked on a journey that will certainly make sure you are prepared for the ride of your life.
When you’re in the city where it’s known for “Land of the Crescent Moon”, you’re definitely in for a treat of spectacular views and friendly people. Here are some of the must-do list when you’re in Turkey.
Hot Air Balloon
For this to happen, you need to be in Cappadocia. It’s the world’s attraction when it comes to a hot air balloon experience. While you’re on a flight, you won’t just see a few balloons but a sky filled with them all around making it a colourful spectacle to watch. Here are some of the things you need to do:
We recommend that you book as early in the season as possible so that you allow plenty of time to reschedule if you get cancelled.
Balloons can take off only when the wind is light, no rain and perfect visibility. With that said, wear light and importantly, comfortable.
You will be given a safety briefing by your Pilot before the balloon takes off. Listen attentively and follow instructions just in case your balloons needs emergency landing.
What To Expect
Flying time is about an hour. The hot air balloons travel with the winds which mean each flight takes a unique path. When the Pilot finds a suitable place to land, the balloon will be packed away and end your landing with a chilled glass of champagne as well we awarded with a certificated after complete the journey.
Cost: EURO 165 per person
Stay In A Cave Hotel
Who doesn’t want to experience staying in a cave? We know we do! That’s what we did.
Staying in a cave was a great experience as the cave rooms were furnished with rock walls, unique antique pieces making it a more realistic journey for us. You will fall in love with the amazing view in a peaceful spot high above Cappadocia. Sometimes in the morning, you are able to witness the balloons up in the air. We stayed in Sultan Suite Cave Hotel, one of the most famous cave hotels at Cappadocia.
Cost: EURO 150 per night
Join ATV Sunset Tour
This is a must-do activity if you’re ever in Goreme, a town in Turkey. The landscape is truly a breathtaking one and the route is set up to be challenging but not a dangerous one either. We have around 40 ATV’s for this tour, and it takes around 2 hours to complete. Although we went in with a large group, we are well looked after by a few guides. The price was quite reasonable when booked through the hotel.
Tip: The roads are very dusty, so be sure to bring a bandana for your nose and mouth and a sunglasses to protect your eyes from the sun.
Cost: Lira 150 per ATV.
If you’re in Turkey and don’t experience the traditional Turkish bath, then your days in Turkey has gone to waste.
You get the bath for 2 hours by yourselves with 20 to 30 minutes of soap massage done by professional masseuses. The rest of the time you can enjoy the jacuzzi and sauna. Drinks and fruits will prepare for you after the bath to further relax your body and mind.
Tip: The masseur and scrubber will be of the same gender as you are so nothing to be shame about!
Cost: Lira 100 per person.
