  • We wade from pool to pool, from one corner to another corner. Some could not roll up their tight long trousers, had their pants wet. The floor of the pools can be slippery. Don't spend too much time.....  more »
  • In some situations there are places with a changed history ... Pamukkale or the cotton town is a fake of gray color or a label to hide three layers of ancient, Greek, Roman and late Byzantine culture....  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 ...do remember to wear glasses
  • Beautiful landscape, clean and amazing heritage
