- Pamukkale Thermal Hot Springs.One of the must-visit places in Turkey is the Pamukkale Hot Springs. It is a terrace pool which is filled with mineral waters which gives you the views of being dreamy and heaven-like. The mineral-laden water in white-coloured hills. Spend your time here relaxing in the unique spring waters and also you can explore the town of Hierapolis which is located near to Pamukkale Region.
Pamukkale is recognised as a World Heritage Site, however, due to a lot of tourists visiting this region some places have been destroyed with tourist footfalls, hence now only some regions of Pamukkale can be visited under guidance.
