All tours of Turkey are incomplete if you do not visit Hagia Sophia, The Galata Tower, The Hippodrome of Constantinople which also has the serpentine column and the walled obelisk, the Sultan Ahmed Mosque or better known as the famous ‘Blue Mosque’, and last but not the least, The Grand Bazaar in Istambul. Hagia Sophia is a very important location from religious and historic perspective. It was initially a church which later got converted to a mosque and now is a museum. An architectural marvel that one must visit as it plays host to a large variety of paintings and sculptures from different eras.
For those looking for good Turkish cuisines to treat their taste buds to, the streets of Istanbul house a great number of Kebab joints. Turkish kebabs are famous all across the world but having the authentic ones is a different experience all together. Istanbul is also famous for its sea food. Being a metro is houses a large number of 5 star hotels as it is one of the largest tourist destinations in Turkey.
Our next major tourist spot in Turkey is Cappadocia. Trust me when I say this is a treat for those who are wooed by natural beauty. Connected to Istanbul and Ankara by trains as well as flights, Cappadocia is a major tourist attraction. It is popular for its ‘Fairy Chimney’s’ or Hoodoos. The best way to explore Cappadocia is by hot air balloon. Hot air balloons are extremely popular among tourists there as one can get a great panoramic view of the entire region in one glimpse. Stone cut monuments are one of the prevalent man-made structures in the region which are also a must see. Many Hollywood films are shot in this region, so don’t be surprised if you bump into Nicolas Cage there!
