Just wanted to know what people thought of the baths. We are doing the 7 days in Istanbul and then 5 days on our own (with guides in a few cities).
1 full day is enough to see baths, to see Pamukkale travertines and to see Hierapolis Ancient City. Three of them are in the same location.
From Pamukkale, you can go to Fethiye with small minubus.2 hours bus ride from there. See Fethiye and after you can visit the Lycian cities or hop in to Bodrum...
We are headed for Pamukkale in March. Perhaps a dumb question: is the "Antique Pool" warm enough to soak in even during the winter months? I know it's a major tourist draw in high season, and I believe the water in the pool comes from a natural hot spring. My question is really, how warm is that water in the winter and is it a reasonable thing to do (soak in it) when the air is quite chilly.
I have been in natural hot springs during winter months (even in snow) and it can be toasty warm, but all depends on the water temp.
