Cappadocia, Turkey is witnessing unprecedented tourist demand


The Cappadocia region in the state of Nevşehir in central Turkey received an unprecedented high volume of tourists during the Eid al-Fitr holiday.

The occupancy rate of hotels and accommodation in the region reached almost 100 percent.

In addition to foreign tourists in the region, Cappadocia received local visitors during the Eid al-Fitr holiday, which increased demand for the region, famous for its tourist attractions.

Ozay Onur, head of the Chamber of Tourist Guides in Nevşehir, said that Cappadocia and its surrounding areas witnessed an increase in the number of visitors during the Eid al-Fitr holiday, whether from foreign tourists or citizens.


He added that the density of visitors reached unprecedented levels during this period.

In turn, Argun Ishiq, a visitor to Cappadocia, said that he chose to spend the Eid holiday this year in Cappadocia.

He expressed his admiration for the tourist and archaeological attractions in the region.

The Cappadocia region is distinguished as one of the most strange and beautiful natural landscapes in the world, and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has classified it as a World Heritage Site.

What the region is most famous for are the “fairy chimneys” or “devil’s tables”, which are column-shaped stones topped with rocks, which were formed naturally as a result of the influence of winds and weather factors on the volcanic rocks that the region abounds in.
