Turkey 2015-Happy B-day to Me

Jump to last reply

I've decided to celebrate my birthday in Turkey, where I've always longed to go and have booked my flight to Istanbul leaving IAD March 24th, 2015 (12:30am) arriving Istanbul same day (4:25pm overnight nonstop flight). I was hoping to fly directly to Cappadocia on the same day but all of the low fares (what I consider low) were sold out, which is not a bad thing since I would use that time to explore IST a bit and sleep off my jet lag and thus get a fresh start to Cappadocia the next day the 25th, where I'll stay until the 28th, leaving IST for Kayseri at 9:30 am arriving at 10:50. I'm hoping to celebrate my birthday with a hot air balloon ride (26th) if the weather cooperates and I get over my fear of heights so I can have a memorable birthday. From reading many comments and I know the weather pretty much dictates whether the balloons will take off or not, so I've taken that very much into consideration.

Now the plan is to find a hotel(s) to overnight in Istanbul and which I can also use on my return from Cappadocia on the 28th, leaving IST on April 1, 2015. Also looking for a hotel in Cappadocia. My budget for hotels are about 60-80 euros per night.

I'm also hoping that the weather cooperates, which I know no one cannot predict, especially in March, but I would very much like to do some light/moderate hiking in the Cappadocia area. On my return to Istanbul, my interest is to leisurely sightsee without a need to rush and see everything. I plan on visiting Turkey again, so rushing to see everything is not a priority.

I will come back with specific questions once I've had a chance to narrow down my hotel searches. In the meantime, any recommendations you have would be most appreciated.

I'm female and traveling solo, not that it matters.

Thanks in advance,
jdc
