Istanbul—Goreme—Cappadocia

Have we got another bucket list destination for you. Travel Factor takes you to the country that straddles Asia and Europe: Turkey!

We begin our trip in Istanbul, the bustling capital of Turkey with an incredible history, awe-inspiring architecture and fascinating culture. We make our way to the Hagia Sophia, once a Greek Orthodox basilica that was turned into a mosque and is now currently a museum. We shall also visit the Blue Mosque, Topkapi Palace and the Suleymaniye Mosque. We'll also take a relaxing cruise across the Bosphorus River, a natural strait connecting the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara. And lastly, shop in the amazing Spice Bazaar and have a feast of Mediterranean delights like beef kebabs, shawarma and baklava!

Then, we take a short plane ride to the historical region of Cappadocia. Be awed by the amazing rock formations in Goreme, the site of an open air museum that features rock-cut churches and monasteries. We'll also take you to the Derinkuyu Underground City, an ancient multi-level underground city which served as the home of 20,000 citizens in the olden times. We'll also visit the Ihlara Valley, Selime Monastery and Pigeon Valley.

Lastly, don't miss out on the chance to ride a hot air balloon in Cappadocia!
