10 days in Turkey and Croatia

I am travelling for 11-12 days with one other friend; hoping to do 2 cities in Turkey (Istanbul and Cappadocia?) and 1 city in Croatia, but am open to suggestions. I have never been to either country so would love any suggestions, recommendation on cities to visit, transportation between cities, etc.

Thank you!

That city in Croatia should be Dubrovnik. On the other hand, there's plenty of distance btw two countries and there're no direct flights btw IST and DBV. THY offers flights via Zagreb but I advice you another route: Fly to Sarajevo, visit Mostar and than Dubrovnik. Much more interesting than Zagreb.

Ssagar, Cappadocia is a region and not a city. There I suggest that you stay at a town called Goreme at Cappadocia. You can check domestic and international flights from "www.skyscanner.com.tr". For your 12 days, I suggest 5 days in Istanbul (4+1), 3 days in Cappadocia, 2 days at Selcuk/Ephesus/Izmir and finally 2 days at the city of Dubrovnik at Croatia. Fly Turkish Airlines from Istanbul to Dubrovnik via Zagreb: "skyscanner.com.tr/transport/…". Here is my trip recent trip report to Selcuk/Ephesus and beyond: "tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g293974-i368-k5874…".

good luck in your travel planning,

hi SSagar

we have just returned from Turkey, Croatia and Bosnia , and would have to say that all 3 were really , really good ! I agree with Alper and Enigma ideas. We flew from Sarajevo to Izmir via Istanbul I am in the process of putting together some reports . Our favourite places were Dubrovnic , Sarajevo , Istanbul and Goreme. Apart from going in a van from Dubrovnic to Sarajevo , we flew between cities in Turkey because of the distance and our limited time . I booked on line with Turkish Airlines and couldnt fault them .
