Full description
Meaning "cotton castle" in Turkish, Pamukkale can really be called the 8th wonder of the world. This natural formation contains hot springs and travertine, terraces of carbonate minerals left by the flowing water. It can be seen from the hills on the opposite side of the valley in the town of Denizli, 20 kilometers away.

On the top of this white "castle" which is in total approximately 2,700 meters long, 600 meters wide, and 160 meters high, the ancient city of Hierapolis was built. Here you can visit an ancient Roman amphitheater, the historical museum (former Turkish bath), the ancient Cleopatra swimming pool, monumental tomb of St. Philippe, the magnificent Necropolis of Anatolia, and much more.

Because of the glorious white travertine and historical values of Hierapolis Ancient City Pamukkale was added to the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage in 1988.

Low standard

Pamukkale itself was fantastic. The location of the hotel was good and the staff welcoming. Very worn hotel which I would not recommend to anyone. The hotel was not thermal. The catering was also not something to shout about. Lunch and tickets must be purchased from the guide. We were taken to a thermal bath which was quite unhygienic, the toilet and showers completely useless. Never seen anything like it. Price and quality are of course related, but have been on other similar trips where the standard has been significantly higher.

not bad - don't pay for the healing waters, not necessary

not necessary to stop for fashion show at leather shop as no one is interested, just makes a long journey longer. paid 35.00 turkish lira for healing waters but the majority of people on the mini bus didn't - but yet everyone went! apparently this was to swim in the waters, not sure, but felt a bit mislead as this was described as a sort of entrance fee. didn't end up swimming after all as the place and especially changing area was very scruffy, this place is def past its best.

Hot

The pamukkale was a nice place, but when it's 37C in the shade it is not where comfortable to walk around there. The hotel that was used for the night wasn't really good. Room was stuffy with whole floor carpeting, no wifi available, but at least there was air conditioning... The trip takes a long time and there was Turkish style forcefull selling of leather jackets on the way there. Lunches, drinks and swimming in the thermal pools costed extra.
