Pamukkale

Without doubt this is one of the most amazing places that I visited in Turkey, I was completely blown away when I saw this place. Pamukkale means cotton castle, you will see why it has been given this name when you visit. It isĀ  a beautiful area that is full of hot springs, you can even take a dip in them if you are feeling adventurous. You will also be able to see some fantastic historical ruins; the baths, temples and coutnless other monuments can bee seen here. This is a must visit!

Hagia Sophia

For many people, this is the number tourist attraction in the whole of Turkey. It isn’t difficult to see why it is so popular, it is a truly spectacular engineering feat. The Hagia Sophia is now a museum, it was transformed in to a museum back in 1935. It so big that is was the largest enclosed space int he world for over one thousand years! It was first built for Justinian I, he was an Easter Roman Emperor all the way back in the sixth century. It’s a bay place but well worth the visit.

Cappadocia

Another absolutely must see! It is difficult to compare this place to anywhere else on the planet, make sure you have your camera at the ready. You will be snapping so many pictures that you will have to charge your camera again every night, you will also have to empty the memory card as well. Don’t believe me? Well, wait until you visit. The main attraction in Cappadocia are the natural rock formations. The chimneys, as thy are know, were created by wind and also water erosion, what was created is one of the most spectacular natural sites you will see. If your budget allows you will be able to take a hot air balloon ride which you allow you some spectacular views.
