Turkey, is an amalgamation of culture, nightlife and the best cuisine – the trans-continental country is where different continents combine and create a magical land to explore and unravel. Turkey is all about culture revival, a stunning coastline to experience the beach life or sip on a cocktail while witnessing the most surreal sunset or taking a hot balloon air ride in the most scenic landscape. Amogh decided to tick this destination off his bucket list with his better half and share this land of paradise with her to jot down a 7 days honeymoon trip to Turkey where they had the best time of their life! Let’s have a closer look at their surreal experiences on their 7 days trip to Turkey and what their itinerary looked like.
The reason I chose this destination because it simply is full of splendid beauty and so much culture to explore. Turkey is an offbeat destination with a combination of ancient culture and modern architecture to marvel at. Each day and each city in Turkey has something unique to offer, the distinct variety of places to see were a catch for me and I decided to take a 7 days trip to Turkey.

1. Cruising The Bosphorus River
We were awed by a surreal cruise experience in the night on Bosphorus river. We enjoyed a wholesome meal on the cruise which includes the delicious authentic Turkey cuisine. To witness the scenic beauty of Istanbul amidst mouth-watering delicacies was an unforgettable experience on our first night.
2. Admiring The Beautiful Mosques In Istanbul
We spent a day exploring the wonderful architecture of Istanbul – we were simply amazed by the intricate details and vibrant colours of the mosques. Istanbul is a treat to the eyes with rich culture and heritage to explore. All attractions can easily be covered on foot and even if you want, you could take the local transport which is good as well.
3. Hot-Air Balloon Ride In Cappadocia
We were absolutely spell bound by the gigantic balloons and the whole experience of being thousands feet above in the air as we slowly glide upwards to witness panoramic views of Turkey. Cappadocia is famous for unqie rock formations and hot air balloon rides that are plenty. The vast mountain ranges and the fairy chimneys at Goreme were absolutely insta-worthy. In the day we covered a short hike in the mountains and ended the day by sipping local wine on our terrace whilst breathtaking views of the city.
4. Visited The Beautiful Town Goreme
In the evening we took a leisurely stroll in Gorem, a beautiful town located in the Cappadocia region of Central Turkey. The town boasts stunning cave churches, an open air museum and frescoes from 10th to 12th centuries.The town was painted in hues of yellow and it looked straight out of an ancient fairy tale movie with caves.
5. Visiting Ephesus – Old City Tour
Ephesus is the ancient city of Turkey where we witness the ruins that reflect centuries of old history of Turkey, from classical Greece to the Roman empire. We took a stroll along the paved path, baths and monumental relics that took us back in time. In the evening we enjoyed a stroll on the sea side and went bar hopping!
6. Visited The Cotton Castle – Pamukkale
Pamukkale is the magical cotton castle that has white rocks looking like soft cotton with sparkling blue water streaming through them as hot water springs! This was a surreal sight to witness and the most unique wonders of nature I had ever witnessed. It is a natural site in Turkey which is basically carbonated water flowing through rocks to make it look shimmering and snow-white in colour.
7. Shopping At Grand Bazaar
As the name suggests, it the grandest mall in Turkey that has everything from electronic products to apparel and classy decor. It is a great place to buy souvenirs from, spent a half day in the mall and ended our night with the Bosphorus cruise where we got lucky enough to spot Dolphins.
