My Hot Air Balloon Ride was cancelled so that was actually a huge saving for me.

My lunch was included in the Red Tour on the second day.

Breakfast was included in my room rate and it was a filling breakfast.

I spent one of my days going on a walk from Goreme which was free with no entrance fees and no need to pay for public transport.

Cappadocia on a Budget Tips

Of course, the prices in restaurants differ, you can get a cheap lunch and dinner from a takeaway Kebab shop or eat in a slightly higher-end restaurant but there’s a huge amount of mid-range places with amazing food.

This goes for accommodation too. Cappadocia has several hostels making it good to visit on a budget, but it also has fancy suites as well as mid-range options.

You can get a private guide and driver to take you around or you can join a day tour as I did. If you’re really on a budget in Cappadocia you can walk around the Valleys near Goreme yourself which is free to do and still a lot of fun!

A Hot Air Balloon Ride is the most popular thing to do in Cappadocia but if you really do not have the budget to do it, in all honesty, it’s ok to go to Cappadocia and not do a hot air balloon ride!

I’m glad I did one the first time I visited but on my second trip mine was cancelled due to the weather and I didn’t have enough time to reschedule it.

Luckily I saw them from the ground on my first morning otherwise I would have been quite gutted but not doing one didn’t ruin my trip to Cappadocia. Seeing the hot air balloons from the ground is just as amazing if you don’t believe me, have a look at the start and end of my YouTube video here!
