Hot Air Ballooning in Cappadocia – As you take off for sunrise you will start to be hypnotized by the spectacular and surreal landscape that lies below you. You will gently drift over the fairy chimneys, through valleys scattered with pigeon houses, over orchards and vineyards. The different colors of the diversified landscape will leave you breathless.

Take a dip at Pamukkale Thermal Pools – named as the “Cotton Castle” in Turkish, it is a natural wonder since the 2nd century BC when the city of Hierapolis was formed around the healing waters.

Cross the Bosphorus Bridge, Go! – connecting Europe and Asia, which extends between Ortakoy and Beylerbeyi, is known officially as the 15 July Martyrs Bridge and unofficially as the First Bridge, is one of the three suspension bridges spanning the Bosphorus strait in Istanbul.
