Traveling through Turkey during RamadanHello fellow globe hoppers...
Traveling to Turkey during Ramadan for 2 weeks this summer (July 24-Aug 7) w/ my best friend. We are both interested in experiencing the vibrance of city life, some ruins, natural geothermal waters, a sea side beach town and any natural wonders. I know...way too much to desire in only 2 weeks! We plan on exploring Istanbul for about 4-5 days but would love to visit at least 2 other locations during the trip. I'm a bit overwhelmed since every time I start reading about a region I want to add it to my itinerary.
We won't have a car so we will be relying on public transport. We want to limit the amount of time in transit so we are looking at the Agean Coast, Mediterranean & Capadoccia. We don't want to go overboard but have a little wiggle room with where we stay & indulge at for dinner.
Would appreciate any suggestions on towns/cities/spas/hotels to visit that will still cater to visitors during the holiday 'month'. As self-proclaimed foodies please send any restaurant recommendations our way ; - p
Also, are there any 3-4 day cruises that leave out of Istanbul that you can recommend? Love the idea of getting to see a new location each day...but not sure if that is the way to go on our first trip to Turkey.
Thanks for everyone's feedback!

You may go to Pamukkale ( Cotton Castle ) for SPA, Geothermal hotels. You are 23, you may enjoy Bodrum (night life and beaches). If you like Ancient Helenic citites (another saying arceological places) Eagean cost will be good choise. For public transportation you can use intercity buses.
