Recently went May period. Leaving the below here in case it might help;
Day 1 - Singapore - Istanbul
Day 2 - Istanbul (Topkapi palace, Blue mosque, Hagia sophia, Basilica Cistern)
Day 3 - Istanbul (Chora museum, Suleymaniye mosque) - Cappadocia
Day 4 - Cappadocia (Hot air balloon, Goreme open air museum)
Day 5 - Cappadocia (Sunset point, Green tour)
Day 6 - Pamukkale
Day 7 - Selcuk/Ephesus
Day 8 - Selcuk - Istanbul (Bosphorus cruise)
Day 9 - Istanbul (Dolmabache Palace) - Singapore

My personal preference would be:
Cappadocia>Pamukkale>Ephesus>Istanbul

Make sure to leave 2 mornings for Cappadocia in case the weather does not allow flying. Out of my 2 mornings, only one morning was suitable for flying, and we got lucky while listening to other tourists who missed their bucket list item.

The lira may fall further as it has against major currencies due to the US-Turkey row.

Is the rate comparable to the money changers there?
