1. Re: 1st time in Cappadocia

From the hotel website - "our hotel is 1 km far from the city center of Avanos "

Seems you will be rather out of town, so you will have no easy access to shopping - or anything else. You may have to get taxis to go anywhere.

Avanos will be your nearest town, and while it is pretty, it is not within the area of Cappadocia famous for the unique "fairy chimney" scenery, so you will miss out on that experience, too. You will also miss the opportunity to stay in one of the unique cave hotels, as you will be staying in a large standard style hotel much like any other large standard hotel anywhere else in the world.

i should imagine your hotel will be able to book a Turkish night for you, or you can book through any local travel agency such as Reliable Travel or Turkish Herutage Travel.

Avanos is a smallish town, not a city, so shopping is limited - as it is throughout this rural area. Certainly no shopping malls - or a great dela od evening entertainment, as most people visit the area for its stunning scenery and to walk and explore the underground cities, rock churches, etc.
