turkish tornado !! please help wise ones!

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites..

Around 10 days in Turkey first time, amateur photography interest , love exploring.single man travelling solo.
Arrive Istanbul early morning on 30th August ...coming out 8th September noon.
Need help to curb my greediness but also be sympahetic and see if I can do what I seek..

Till now thought
first Cappadocia . shd reach by noon as I will fly .stay 30th
31st
1st
What do I do if I want to take in the better sights at best times for photography..or just take a guided tour.What to do first day as I would have missed out on them by the time I reach. Thinking of a balloon ride..when is it best for photography and how best to guarantee a flight over the chimneys?Also where do I see the drvishes ..is it worth going to caravanserai for it in an evening? What do I do in Cappadocia for the evening...has anybody tried the midnight trek at rose valley...?which spot for taking snaps of ballons against a grerat backdrop?

2nd Sept Thinking of bussing it out at night to Kas or Fethiye to reach 2nd Monday. Essentially trying to get a gulet and quaint fishing village ..poor swimmer but like by the waters..maybe a ruin or two..
3d night set off for Pamukkale
4th trip to Pamukkale can i do pamukkale and aphrodisia..is the latter worth it?
5th morning see Ephesus and take flight to Istanbul afternoon.
6th
7th Istanbul.
Writing this I can see I shd stay at least a day more in Istanbul. Which means I might have to give up on Fethiye .

I would really appreciate your advice.Please feel free to alter as you please..also any tips you think is valid. Thank you in advance....

(Also is it better to stay at sultanahmet..my airport going out is sabiha gocken and flight at 1.30 pm. )
