Travel Tips from people who've been to Pamukkale
Is a bit to much tourist orientated, but if you wait till closing time you might find a staff member who is ready to let you in to (for a small fee as always) untouched territories and bathe in the marvelous waters of the "cotton castle".
The culture, history and the old ruins there are unbelievable and so good to be able to cool of in the swimming pool at the restaurant area. The pool has natural water and is built around the environment so in it there are remains of the ancient city and natural rocks and cracks on/in the bottom of the pool. Very charming.

With bathing in the untouched waters the experience gets 10 out of 10 but without 8/10.

NB: We ate at a little restaurant little down the road from the tourist area not at the big tourist restaurants. Got great homemade food at low price with the amazing local hospitality. No menu just point at chicken or lamb and then wait for the surprise.

This is a very, I mean very beautiful place. Small but with excellent view, especially the Travertine. A natural calcium pool (not just one) which you have to walk with your shoes off. But advice to female backpackers, be really careful of the Turkish men here. They are really eager to have something with you. (You know what I mean.) Smiling is a good virtue, but don't smile too much or they will think that you're also interested in them. Anyway, I still love this place.

Located in the Eastern part of Turkey, Pamukkale is a wonderful place to visit if you like natural calcium pools.  Pamuk means "cotton", while Kalle is "castle".  Thus the name cottoncastle.  This is a must see sight in Turkey.  Be ready to soak your body in the mineral baths which are ice blue in color.  After that, you can head out to Cappadoccia, where you can see the fairy domes that are only in seen in dreams or Star Wars Movies@!
