I was worried about the bad reviews I read here, and maybe it did help that I didn’t have any expectations after what I had read, but what I saw still blew my mind. I never believe what I see in a brochure, just like...More
Pamukkale is a place I had seen in pictures and always wanted to visit but I never got round to it, just back from Turkey and it is a lovely place. I've read some of the reviews and I'd say the best way to see...More
Spent a lovely few hours at Pamukkale Thermal Pools. It was extremely busy and I think would most likely be better early morning or late afternoon. Fascinating place and great fun to climb into the pools.
Things I can confirm from my trip to the pools:
1. Yes, it looks nothing like the postcard pics taken in the 90s. There are only about 4 or 5 pools that are knee depth at best
2. Yes, it gets ridiculously overrun with tourists...More
Really the best natural wonder I've seen in years. 100% recommend staying the night in Pamukkale and going to the salt flats first thing in the morning to avoid crowds, as most tour groups and buses arrive in the afternoon from neighbouring areas.
lovely place to visit amazing that this is in the middle of knowhere the pools are brilliant but a bit sore on the feet as you cannot wear any form of footwear lovely scenery and plenty to do if you go to cleapatras pool and...More
İts one of the best destination for travelers. You guys should see this place before you die. But please follow the rules,dont climb or walk on the travertines that your not allowed to... Remember: its ours.
Most people come to Pamukkale for the travertine terraces and they are really impressive to see. However, the pictures used for marketing purposes are far better that what you will experience. Most of the pools are dried up and the place is totally run over...More
It is so much different as compare to what you see on internet or their advertise broucher. Wonder what had happen. The crowd was not too bad as our guide did advised us in advance to go early to avoid crowd and hot weather. We...More

I'd say January would be a pretty good time to bathe in the pools, the water levels will be higher than in the summer and you will probably have less crowds to contend with. However, word of caution, find out what is the... More
I'd say January would be a pretty good time to bathe in the pools, the water levels will be higher than in the summer and you will probably have less crowds to contend with. However, word of caution, find out what is the warmest time of the day and go about 30 mins before that time; and yes, do take a drying towel and a quick (and warm) change of clothes.
Have fun! Let us know how it goes!! Good luck!! :)
The South Gate opens at 630am and the other two gates open at 8am. Think the entrance fee is 20 or 25 lira. We used the 15-day museum pass and hence did not buy the single entry ticket. There’s a museum inside that you need... More
The South Gate opens at 630am and the other two gates open at 8am. Think the entrance fee is 20 or 25 lira. We used the 15-day museum pass and hence did not buy the single entry ticket. There’s a museum inside that you need to buy a separate ticket ( another 20 or 25 lira ) if you purchased single entrance ticket. Not sure about closing time, but we saw there’s still people up there at night.
