We headed out of Kusadasi for a 12 hour tour to Pamakkule - I had been there before but wanted to share the experience with my fiancée. But just the thought of 12 hours on a tour made me ill. It was surprisingly painless and totally enjoyable, mainly due to Bugra our amazing knowledgeable tour guide. Not only was his... More

A long drive from most places but well worth the trip. They are really neat to see and you need to go swim in the mineral baths. Its really neat to be swimming in sparkling water while swimming over ruins! Our daughter loved it and we wish we would ahve had more time to just enjoy the water.

If you get a chance to actually stay in the area then you will certainly enjoy the pamukkale pools and Amphitheatre a lot more as you will have more time for it all. We had to travel for almost 4 hours to get there (stayed in Oludeniz) and only had 3 hours to explore and enjoy the pools and the... More

The Thermal Pools were amazing! I just can't belive that the pools and a "walls" from travertine are naturally. Beautiful. Although there were a lot of people, the pools were empty... But the buttom was muddy, and I don't like it very much... Nevermind. A view of the Denizli from the Pammukkale was beatiful too. And the historical city and... More

If you're thinking about going here, just do it. It's fantastic! So stunning, and unlike anything i've ever seen before. The calcium looks like snow, the pools are hot and a lovely shade of blue -Totally worth the trip. I was a bit wary of walking on the rock at first because you have to take your shoes off or... More

We loved the place, for sure there were a lot of people but the place is just fantastic, the pool, water and finally historical place is fantastic and if you are able to forget the group of tourist that will mainly remember the bar and restaurant , you will really have a good time, it is really nice.

We stayed 1 night at Parmukkale in order to see the pools. We entered by the village and carried our shoes up. There was water in the pools but it was cold at the bottom as the sun hadn't warmed them and as we got higher the smaller pools were warmer as they were fed by thermal water but crowded... More

The hot springs of Pamukkale. One of the most unreal sights I have been fortunate enough to experience. There were a lot of people but it was well worth it. I highly recommend visiting in the early morning.

It was one of the places I was really looking forward to seeing, so we stayed there 1 night to be early the next morning into the pools. It is best to go from the entrance in the village as most of the bus tours come from the gate close to Heirapolis. To be fare I went there for the... More
