Our second day in Cappadocia started with hot air balloon. We booked for it since we were in Malaysia via website and it costs us 531.30 MYR per head. The hot air balloon package includes pick-up to and fro hotel, breakfast, hot air balloon itself and refreshment. We were on air for about 90 minutes.
We spent our evening by visiting Goreme Open Air museum and ATV rides for 3 hours until dusk. We did not knew at first that the end point for that ATV ride will be in Cavusin but luckily we've got replacement to ride our ATV back to its starting point. We just walked to our hotel upon seeing sunset from the top point of Cavusin. On the next day, we booked a ground tour from our hotel that costs us 100 Turkish Lira per person.

We started our first day in Istanbul by visiting Galata Tower in the evening. We went to Istanbul Hard Rock Café at night and on the next day, we proudly went touring in Sultanahmet area by wearing jubah. We bought Museum Kart for 85 Turkish Lira and it valid for 5 days. We went to Museum of Turkish and Islamic Art, Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia. It was such indescribable feeling when visiting these places! It is a dream that comes true. *cry*

On the following day, we went to Dolmabahce Sarayi and Maiden Tower by wearing our own country's national costume, Baju Kurung. We also went for Bhosporus Boat Tour that costs us only 15 Turkish Lira. We can clearly see the demographic difference between the Asean and Europe side of Turkey along the strait.
It is only on the next day we wear the normal casual attire after two days became Malaysia ambassadors :P

We've visited Topkapi Palace, Archeology Museum and Grand Bazaar to buy some stuffs and souvenirs. By comparison, Spice Bazaar offered cheaper price for many items as compared to Grand Bazaar but I went to Spice Bazaar on the next day which is after Grand Bazaar. We did paid a visit to Miniaturk by using bus and for those who did not managed to visit the whole Turkey, this place is highly recommended as we can see the all the miniatures of Turkey attractions in this park.
After all, my trip to Turkey costs me 7117.69 MYR for 11 days 10 nights.
Have a nice day :)
