We arrived early in the morning to Pamukkale, stayed for 4-5 hours and were able to see the thermal pools and Hierapolis quietly. So if you are planning of visiting pamukkale half day is enough to see all the attractions

Visited the pools with my husband a few days back. Love the travertines, such a gorgeous white colour along with the green/blue of the hot water. I visited here in the extreme winter season, had to walk around without my shoes(you've to take off your shoes when walking on the travertines) and went to the bottom gate (not an easy... More

Not only the Thermal Pool is an exotic experience but rest of the garden is also a great place for travelers. Make sure you cover everything especially the colosseum

This place is like nowhere else. You can take off your shoes and jump to the pool in warm water. The water is blue.

There was no water !!!! Only a few pools were having small water. It didn't look like the pictures and videos we saw over internet. It was a disappointment actually.
