Hop in a hot air balloon in Cappadocia, Turkey
Cappadocia, a community located in Turkey’s Anatolia region, is having a travel moment thanks to Instagram. People are flocking to the town for picture-perfect photos. It’s also the ideal location for a romantic, thrilling honeymoon experience. The town, which is now a World Heritage site, is a history buff’s dream come true. Guests can explore centuries-old caves, hike through the Goreme Open Air Museum, or take part in Cappadocia’s newest morning ritual: hot air balloon rides. Just as the sun is rising, hundreds of hot air balloons take flight, giving travelers a spectacular vantage point. Picking a company to fly with comes down to personal preference, but we suggest going with Kapadokya Balloons’ deluxe flight. It starts off with traditional cookies and Turkish tea, takes a limited amount of guests, and lasts a full 90 minutes. At night, rest your head at the Museum Hotel, which is often rated as the region’s best luxury accommodation.
