Next we left for Kaymakli this is an underground city. The entry ticket is for 15 lira. From Goreme take a local bus to Nevsheir for 2.5 lira. This bus operates at every 1/2 hour. From Nevsheir take another bus to Kaymakli for 3 lira. The city in my eyes is weird and haunted. I wonder how people lived there as there was hardly any ventilation. Initially, I didn't follow signs so I was lost once I came out, I realized the whole tour can be made easier by following arrows and I went again, this time following the arrows :p. The red arrow are to go in and the blue ones to come out. And then we left back for Goreme. Goreme has many shops where you can buy magnets, key chain and other souvenirs. In the evening, we took a metro bus from Goreme to Istanbul for 60 lira. We booked a day before and hence paid 60 lira. If it is booked in advance, you can get cheaper rates also. We were told t bus will have wifi but it didn't have and this reminds me that you get wifi mostly everywhere in Turkey. Morning bus reached at 6 instead of 7, we slept at the bus station for 2 hours and then took a red metro to Ataturk airport which is where I have finished writing my blog of this amazing trip while waiting for Qatar airways flight which is late

After an early morning flight, we reached the capital city of Ankara for a city tour. Ankara is one of the fastest growing cities in the world with a history that can be dated back 3000 years. We visited the Anatolian Civilisations Museum, which also exhibits the remains of Catalhoyuk, the Neolithic village dating back to 6500 BC. We also went to the Mausoleum of Ataturk, the founder of modern Turkey.

Selcuk – A quaint little town which houses the Ephesus, the Temple of Artemis (one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world) and the house of Virgin Mary (it is believed that Mother Mary spent her last few days here when St John brought her to Turkey after the death of Jesus). It’s also just a few hours away from Pammukale (the cotton castle with the hot springs and travertine) and few minutes away from Kusadasi which is one of the biggest ports in Turkey where most of the cruise ships halt.
