Approximately 3 hours at Temple of Hadrian, then lunch and back to sightseeing in the afternoon to Pamukkale. A good 3 hours in the coach with plain sceneries out there. So better to cat nap and now that its been 6 days in Turkey (Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia & Hippodrome, Bosphorus Cruise, Spice Bazaar, Trojan Horse of Troy, Acropolis of Pergamon, House Of Virgin Mary and Temple Of Artemis &Temple of Hadrian) travelling the distance, walk the walk and in and out of hotels. sleep will automatically knock you out.
At about 5pm, we arrived at Pamukkale thermal pools - Turkey's foremost mineral bath spa, the natural beauty with hot calcium-laden water springs from the earth, cascading over the cliffs. As the springs cool down, they are the hard white calcium pools. This formation so striking that the ancients Romans built a spa town, thereafter declared as UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The thermal pools so called as cotton terraces/castles you will see as you walk in. Then a closer view and its common to see the tourists touching or dipping the feet in the warm water, known for its benefits to the eyes and skin and curing properties to ills of asthma and rheumatism.
These thermal pools definitely amazing and don't forget to picturesque the backdrop with the remains of ancient Hierapolis against the thrilling white terraces. An hour went by and back again journeying - dinner and night-night at the hotel.
Up next: 13th Century Sultanhani Caravanserai, between Konya and Cappadocia.
