Pictures that we saw of Pamukkale are misleading. Only a few terraces have water in them & it’s definitely not as ‘blue’ as the postcards show you otherwise. The antique bath charges 50 lira as entry but it’s really missable - it is simply a...More

I have never seen anything like this. Such a beauty and of course a must visit. Obviously, it is very difficult to capture a shot without any tourists in the background and it's always very crowded. If you want to escape the crowd, you will...More

To swim in, is not the idea. To relax in warm water among a lot of other, is ok. It is an experience for a Pamukkaletrial. A lot of people. Done this 3 times. 3 different journeys. For fun.

Pamukkale Thermal Pools provides the most unique experience that one can ever have, With hot water gushing through your feet whilst walking on the white cotton castles, this was surely one of the best experiences that i ever had.

I really wanted to love Pamukkale. I remember seeing pictures and thinking how it looked like clouds; imagining what it would be like to be in a white cotton candy field. Instead, we arrived at an overrun tourist attraction - congested, frenzied, and not peaceful...More

The pools are more for a quick immersion and to appreciate the view but not for proper swimming. The water is shallow and usually the area is crowded.
