  • It was very crowded and many pools were drained off, but whatever remained is beautiful. Heiropolis ruins are amazing  more »
  • We went to Pamukkale on 18th October 2019 from Antalya. It is around 4 hour drive but on very good roads and that made it very comfortable. The cab driver compulsorily stops every hour for 15 minutes ...  more »
  • Amazing and beautiful pools with light blue water pools with clay. Simply stunning views and experience. These pools are in steps one after the other however the temperature of the pools was bit cold and stones are slippery so one needs to be extra careful . You require the full day to enjoy the thermal pools, ancient pool and the ruins as 2 3 hours are not enough remember to wear glasses
  • Most breathtaking place ever. Be wary of the heat and long walk up to get there, wear flops and then you can remove them once you reach the running springs. It is an uphill walk so perhaps choose a cooler day to go
