Often after visiting a country, people asked ‘So what is your favourite city here?’ and undoubtedly, my favourite city in Turkey is none other than the Fairy Chimneys – Cappadocia.

Cappadocia, a semi-arid region in central Turkey, is full of otherworldly natural sites, most notably the “fairy chimneys” – tall, cone-shaped rock formations clustered in Monks Valley and elsewhere.

I spent a good 2 full days in Cappadocia and I wish I had more times to spend in this beautiful city. To make it easier for understanding the landscape in Cappadocia, usually tour agent will name it into North and South Cappadocia tour.

The North Cappadocia also known as red tour visits the sights and places immediately close to Goreme.

The South Cappadocia also known as green tour visits the underground cities as well as ventures into the neighbouring city of Aksaray to Ihlara valley & Selime monastery.

There are two popular town for tourists to based in Cappadocia which is Goreme and Urgup. So whether to stay in Goreme or Urgup, it’s your call, just a short note that Goreme does get touristy during Summer time. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
