Once you arrive in Cappadocia, sign up for the sunrise balloon ride right away. You may not be able to fly sometimes due to weather condition. So do this first!

Go to Cappadokia and visit the Top 2 places (from my point of view) : chimney fairies (the ones that looks like mushrooms or the masculine organ ????) & visit the underground city.. And eat testi kebab

Only good side is the proximity to city center and ski resort. In less than 1/2 h you can reach both.

Tiny airport hiding a wonderful treasure: the Büfe NurDem shop in the gate area sells this rare blackberry Magnum icecream that will make your wait delightful.
