Turkey’s picturesque Cappadocia has attracted 1 million tourists in the first five months

Turkey’s globally renowned Cappadocia hosts 1M tourists in 5 months.

A total of 1.03 million domestic and international visitors came to explore the charming touristic hub, famed for its distinctive fairy chimneys, underground cities, cave hotels and hot air balloon rides.

While it hosted over 1.1 million visitors in the same period of 2019, the number of tourists who visited Cappadocia decreased drastically in 2020, to around 323,000, due to restrictions imposed to stem the spread of the coronavirus.

In the first five months of last year, Cappadocia hosted over 333,633 domestic and international tourists.

Sevda Aksoy, a tour guide in the region, told Anadolu Agency (AA) that the slowdown in the tourism sector during the COVID-19 pandemic has been left behind as of this year.

Aksoy said she has been a tourist guide in the region for a long time and that they have had a very busy season this year, particularly in April and May, noting: “Domestic tourists have also been paying attention to cultural tourism in the past several years.”

Halime Ebrar Kara, another visitor, said she came to visit Cappadocia with her friends from Turkey’s northwestern Bolu province and added that they were impressed by stories about the region.
