It's a must visit once in your life time. It's picturesque, and beautiful. You can spend upto 4 hours here if you don't plan to visit Cleopatra pool. Best to climb up slowly and spend some time at the top visiting the pools, herapolis etc. wait till sunset and walk down the Travines leisurely after sunset. The Travines changes colour to yellow and organe and its beautiful to experience it during sunset.

stunning scenery, beautiful setting, very unusual, makes for excellent photographs, excellent small museum with a very good collection, well worth a visit but not worth staying overnight in the town if you can help it

The pools get very crowded with large coach trips. The entrance fee is quite expensive but the visit is a just when you are in Pamukkale.

after hiking up the Hireapolis at Denzili, Turkey you reach atop a hill and as you gaze down a wonderful spectacle will memerize you. All along the side of the hill are snow or cotton white deposits with occasional pools holding crystal clear warm waters (appearing turquoise). hiking through these white calcium carbonate deposits flooded with warm water is a great feeling. If you are well prepared you can take a bath in these pools, its extremely energizing. The feel and texture of these deposits is great. Once you come down to the street level look back and marvel the entire expanse of these deposits and the spectacle it creates.
If you are travelling from the Cappadocia region towards Ephesus, Pamukkale falls between, so you can plan accordingly.

Visited in September 2013, and was really looking forward to seeing the pools in real life. Too many visitors in one day actually spoiled the experience for me. It was impossible to take a decent photograph without it being photo bombed by inconsiderate tourists. The last straw was finding not one, but two used plasters in the mud when attempting to swim in one of the pools. So much for "healing" benefits of water and mud!! I do not regret visiting, but my expectations were far to high. Being pestered by tour operators wanting to sell balloon trips to Cappadocia, and ripping you off in the process, also added to spoiling the experience for me.
