I came here with friends this April 2014 and could not believe my eyes. I thought this was one of the most amazing natural wonders I had ever seen when I came here with my husband about 6 years ago. Then, it was just like the pictures you see online. Really amazing. A group of us took the day trip... More

We have just been to Pamukkale - an interesting natural phenomenon. However the experience was disturbed by noticing the camel and the small dark-brown stallion at the intrance. The horse was barely able to stand on his forelegs. When I pointed it out to the owner he immediately lifted up one hoof and showed us that they had put car... More

Absolutely stunning. The view from the bottom is so-so. It's tourist heavy and parking can be a really big deal. One of the things I didn't realize about the place was exactly how what it is. If you've never been there, it's not a white mountain with pools of spring water - there is water pouring down the whole thing.... More

The views are absolutely stunning. The only disappointment with the tour we were on which was from Marmaris was that we only had three hours there which didn't give us time to view the ampitheaterear there. I would highly recommend but make sure you check any tours as the one we were on was good but I believe they over... More

On such a hot day (32 degrees celsius), it was a cool relief to find the water running all over the thermal pools was almost cold! I highly recommend staying to see the sunset as this is the quietest and most beautiful time of day.

We visited this location as a part of a trip to Turkey. This represented one more fascinating aspect of an overall excellent holiday in Turkey. The site itself which forms a part of the ancient district (of Biblical note) of Laodecia, is filled with amazing warm water pools against a pure white formation of mineral deposits. The scenery is just... More

The pools were nice, but for 32 TL--about $16 USD, you are only allowed one entry! I asked about going to the restroom and they told me that once you're in, you're in and you can't come back! What!?! Do they want people to urinate in their pools? Also, it was off-season---we were 2 of only 4 people swimming. Would... More

Bring your bathing suit, and take time to sit in the thermal pools while the 37 degree water runs by you . Then lie on the rocks as the water drizzles down, running by your skin keeping you warm. Enjoy it during the day and then at sunset, which is even more amazing. An experience of a lifetime. Something that... More
