Pamukkale, Turkey: Bathing Like a King!

Pamukkale!

Pamukkale (meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish), one of the top tourist attractions in Turkey, certainly lives up to its expectation when it comes to the natural wonder.
The massive formation of bizarre calcium cliff bathing pools is simply one of a kind. Tourists flock to Pamukkale not only for the cascading mineral terraces, but also for the hot springs’ health benefits, scientifically proven to cure many diseases.

For a more private bathing session, some will choose to visit the enclosed zone of “Antique Pool”. But don’t forget the magnificent Roman amphitheater of Hierapolis for 12,000 spectators which lies just above the “Antique Pool” too. The view from the top of the amphitheater is priceless.

If you’re considering visiting Pamukkale, it is best to explore in the autumn and spring when the weather is mild. The closest commercial airport is Denizli – Cardak Airport, which has a great connection time from Istanbul Atatürk Airport by Turkish Airlines. If you are looking to travel by train, Denizle is also well established from Izmir and Selcuk train station.
