I'm thinking about going to Turkey this coming April and am just trying to sort things out. For background: I'll likely be travelling solo, female in mid-20s. I don't have any interest in doing a tour. I also do not drive so could not rent a car.
I know I want to visit Istanbul, but the Cappadocia area has entrhalled me and I must see it. I'm not fully sure what would be the best way for me to get there, or really where in the area I should aim to go (am thinking Goreme obviously). I'm mostly interested in hiking around and taking in scenery at my own pace, as I'm not really keen on doing an organized tour as I hate being rushed.
How good is local transport in the area?
