Goreme, Cappadocia

Famed for its landscape of unusually shaped stone formations and churches cut into the natural rocks, Goreme sits in the central part of the country, an area originally settled during Roman times.
Goreme is known for museums, historic sites, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: soar above the sights with a balloon tour, stop by Yastik's, admire the verdant scenery at Gulludere Vadisi, and admire the landmark architecture of Ortahisar Abdioglu Camii.

To find photos, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Goreme route maker.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Goreme is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from Kuala Lumpur to Goreme due to the time zone difference. In April, Goreme is colder than Kuala Lumpur - with highs of 22°C and lows of 5°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Pamukkale.

Rich in culture and customs and brimming with hospitality, natural beauty, and historical heritage, Turkey serves as a crossroads between Asia and Europe. The landmass known as Anatolia on which Turkey thrives has been home to numerous civilizations and their faiths and cultures, as attested by the 13 World Heritage Sites and countless religious sites you'll find here. Relive the ancient world through the ruins, customs, and traditions that are among the nation's most precious heritages. Adventure-seekers have plenty do to here, including mountain climbing, scuba diving, rafting, and skiing. A holiday to Turkey is incomplete without a cup of Turkish coffee, the pinnacle of Turkish cuisine inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage List.
