Hi Friends,

I am planning a trip to turkey in mid January 2015.Can you please suggest if it is a good time to visit?
I would like to visit following places in a trip planned for 1 week -

Istanbul
Antalaya
Cappadocia
Pamukkale
Ephesus
Bodrum
Adaiyaman

Do you think its possible to cover these places in one weeks time?
Is hot air balloon at Cappadocia will be operational?

Please advise?

thanks
Shaleen

Hello. Here is some social explosions. Adiyaman is one of Kurdish cities that has that problem. But if you want to visit Turkish area i have a friend who is a professional tourist guide. İ can send you his contact info.

Is it a good time to visit?

Well to be honest no. It will be cold in January. Just Antalya will be a little warmer around 10 C on average.

Hi,
I also think you planned too much places.
You ll need at least 2 weeks for all this.
In my opinion Istambul requires at least 3 days and Cappadocia also !

I have been in Istanbul in early December and that was very cold in the day time and slightly icy at night. Like everyone else, I visited down south in summer when it gets rather hot.

Turkey has got a good tourist industry but it is geared for the summer months when most travel agents can book what you want. But mid winter, you will have problems visiting these places as there will be few if any tours.

Ohhh! It's impossible to visit all these cities in a week.They are far from each other and there are lots of places to visit.
Then let's start; What kind of trip do you plan? Cappadocia and Adıyaman are very cold in January. If u want to see historical places u must see Istanbul and around like Bursa(Mount of Uludağ for skiing). Also u can visit Pamukkale and Bodrum(best in summer).
I hope these explanations wiil help u :)

Ditto above, seven separate destinations in seven days is nuts.

Cheers,
