9 nights in Turkey in late May -- Istanbul, Cappadocia, and where else?

Jump to last reply

DH and I just bought tickets to Istanbul for late May 2013 and have a total of nine nights to spend in Turkey -- not long enough, we know. This will be our first time in Turkey but we have traveled extensively in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia before. Our primary interests for this trip are photography and hiking. We are thinking of spending 3-6 nights in Istanbul (staying in Sultanahmet -- I'm currently trying to narrow down hotel options there, looking for something centrally located with a great view) and probably 3 in Cappadocia (we definitely want to take a balloon ride in Cappadocia). Our main question is whether to just do those two locations or whether to limit our time in Istanbul to three nights and try to see somewhere else in Turkey for 2-3 nights (like Ephesus, or maybe spend some time on a boat along the coast?). Do people have recommendations about where we should base ourselves in Cappadocia? We would like to keep accommodations under about $200/night but could go over that for something special. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
