Pammukale Tour: Cotton Palace & Turkish Maldives

More Details

Travel via air-conditioned bus to the “Cotton Palace” of Pamukkale and choose between the ancient city Hierapolis and “Turkish Maldives” as your secondary destination. Hierapolis features the Apollo temple, the Roman baths, and other historical sites. While Salda Lake, known as the “Turkish Maldives”, mesmerizes travelers with its translucent waters.

Pamukkale is on the list of world-famous UNESCO Heritage Sites, and when you see it up close, there are no questions why. There’s simply nothing like it anywhere else. Translated from Turkish, “Cotton Castle”, is an incredible sight of white calcium travertines, hot springs, and thermal pool terraces carved by the flowing water. And yes, you can swim in them! Several hot springs in the area have been used as “natural spas” since the 2nd Century B.C.E. when people came here to soothe their ailments.
However, it is not only beautiful but rich in historical value. Accompanied by a professional guide, you will unravel centuries-old stories based on the region’s history. You will discover the largest necropolis in Turkey, as well as one of the largest amphitheaters. Hierapolis, “Holy City”, is a must-see for history and culture enthusiasts.
However, if you prefer to delve less into centuries old-stories, but dive into dreamy waters instead, Salda Lake, the “Turkish Maldives”, is where you should go. Located among picturesque mountain landscapes, it’s known for its white sandy beaches and extremely clear water. Here you can enjoy walking along the white sandy beaches and swimming in the clear turquoise waters.
The tour includes a comfortable round-trip in an airconditioned bus with hotel pick up and drop off, is accompanied by professional tour guides, includes traditional lunch and dinner at authentic restaurants, and comfortable accommodation for the 2-day tour.
Depending on the selected tour, there may be stops in the local villages, authentic workshop visits, and more. We will keep those secret for happy surprises!

*Please note that the highlighted activities may vary depending on the tour you select. The tour that visits Salda Lake as a secondary destination also visits the ancient city Hierapolis, but other tours exclude Salda Lake.
