Pamukkale, Turkey – Hot Springs, Health and Hierapolis
Pamukkale was a place we had heard the name of, but didn’t really know much about. We’re pretty light on the planning at the best of times and being a short trip, most of our attention had been focused on the seeing the ‘big three’ – Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus – then visiting our family friends in Alacati for the final few days. All we knew of Pamukkale was that there were some hot springs (good, we like those), some ruins (history and culture – also good) and a hillside covered in white stuff called the Cotton Castle (confusing – better check it out!). So with that knowledge, we figured on a one-night stopover to have a quick look around on the way from Cappadocia to Alacati – job done! But then we received a message from Koray, a local resident of Pamukkale who had seen come across our Facebook and decided to show us just how much the little town had to offer! He even offered to organize our accommodation and connect us with the local mayor’s office! This sounded great, so we added an extra day to our time in this now slightly more intriguing place.
