What visit to a country is not worth spending an evening emersed in the culture and traditions? A Turkish Night excursion can be booked all over Turkey but no one is ever the same with each comprising traditions of the area that you are visting as well as countrywide culture and tradition.
A Turkish Night In Cappadocia consists of folk dance from the region and beyond. You can also expect to witness everything from humorous dancing to the more exotic. Even belly dancers more associated with middle eastern dance have roots in Turkey. Some of the dances you will be shown are likely to be from every corner of Turkey, from the Caucasian dance show to the more exotic belly dancing and the traditional folk dancing of the many Turkish regions.
The Show including is likely to be of a three to four hour duration and will be in Avanos and Uchisar, in a uniquely authentic environment. You are likely to see the traditional courtship of Turkey, which involves ‘stealing’ the bride from her parents home to start a new life together.
And if just observing is not for you, you may also be asked to participate in the Show you came to watch. Nothing is quite as amusing as watching guests ‘have a go’ at belly dancing, much to the amusement of their family and other diners.
All in all, with the entertainment, good food and wine, not to mention the company, four hours will pass quickly among the new friends you are likely to make and the old ones you came along with. The perfect end to a perfect day in Cappadocia.
