Why So SUrious? Profile Picture
1.Here we are again with a unique offer. The spirit of Anatolia is calling YOU! Are you bored of studying? Are you bored of your local’s regular works or other serious stuff? Then ask yourself WHY SO SURIOUS? For 14 days, you will have the chance to experience an unforgettable journey while making new friends in the ancient civilization of Cappadocia and around the Mediterranean Sea. You will enjoy the nature of Eymir Lake on your bicycle, and all at once you will find yourself flying on your broom while playing Quidditch! Then suddenly, you can feel like a pirate while playing the Treasure Hunt. Cappadocia’s view will be enough to capture you while riding a camel like ancient camel riders. Neither will Antalya’s splendid bays want to leave you nor will you want to leave them behind. In these bays, you can dive into deep sea and meet sea turtles if you are lucky enough. With the city tours, you will get to know the place better and collect souvenirs for your friends, family and yourself. No doubt, the most enjoyable times will be Turkish Nights where you can taste the Turkish cuisine. These are just trailers; the real event will be between August 24th – September 6th.

Ankara, Turkey's capital and second most populous city, is a modern European metropolis speckled with reminders of its varied history. Old castles and ruins from Hittite, Phrygian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman civilizations dot the landscape. The modern city includes government and state houses, major universities, military bases, consulates, bustling nightlife. We will spend 7 days in here with lots of fun activities.


The unofficial capital of the Cappadocia region, Nevsehir makes a great central base for exploring the surrounding area and its many underground cities and countless fairy chimneys. Founded as Nyssa by the Hittites more than 3,000 years ago, Nevsehir Museum, one of Turkey's finest, is also very popular. We will spend 3 days with visiting Ihlara walley, Göreme National park, Kaymaklı underground city and famous Cappadocia wine tasting.


We will visit 4 different places in Antalya;
1) Konyaaltı Beach
Konyaalti Beach is one of the main beach of Antalya. It is located on the western side of the city and stretches for 7 km. The backdrop of the Taurus mountains and the cliffs on either end form a breathtaking scene for a day of swimming and sunbathing.
2) Kurşunlu Waterfall
Kurşunlu Waterfall is unique place where a cascade connecting seven ponds falls over an 18-metre height against a backdrop of green nature. The area is open to visitors since 1968. Waterfall and picnic area cover 33 hectares of land so they provide comfort with the fountains seats grills and playgrounds.
3) Olympos
Olympos was an ancient city in Lycia. Today it is located 80 km to the south of Antalya. It’s name is probably derived from olympos mountain roughly 15 km north of the city. It is between Adrasan and Kemer and so popular with tree-house hotels. If you feel tired or bored of the city life Olympos is the best choice for you. Because generally people come together to relax and enjoy the calming rhythms of nature.
4) Kaputas Beach
Kaputas Beach is one of the most famous beaches in Turkey, located between Kas and Kalkan. To reach the beach you need to walk down 187 steps and obviously walk up the stairs after a good swim. Kaputas Beach has crystal water and it is not overly populated.
