Turkey - Goreme or Urgup - which better as base?

Jump to last reply

I will be going with 2 family members to, among other areas, Capadocia in Turkey. I have read a variety of materials on the varied options of villages/cities to use as a base for exploring the area. As it seems most have done, i have narrowed it to Goreme and Urgup and like facets of both.

It seems that although Goreme is smaller in population than Urgup, it is built up more and more amenable to a younger crowd with a livelier night scene, and that Urgup though larger is more serene.

in checking hotels, i found the prices of hotels and restaurants it seems to be higher in Urgup, so Goreme it seems would win the financial advantage.

i like the proximity of goreme to the goreme open air museum so we can walk to it.

from your experiences, which would be the better to use as a base for 3 days of exploration (open air museum, 1-2 underground cities, hike in valley, perhaps balloon ride.

which is the lovelier surrounding vista? i've heard great things about both.

does one provide any logistical advantage for getting to the balloon riding area (i know they come get you at the hotel)?

it seems they are equally easy to get to from the two airports.

finally, has anyone witnessed a performance of the whiirling dervishes in this area? i would love to go. what were your thoughts and are you glad you went?

thank you for all of your thoughts.

Jeff
