The Pamukkale travertine pools are a strange formation caused by thermal springs that have been going forever. The mineral composition of the water creates white travertine pools. It looks like someone sprayed the whole hillside with liquid marble, and then dug out little pools. Even Cleopatra came to bath here, so it’s only natural that we follow. We went to the pools as a day trip from Selcok, and we had plenty of time to see everything. It’s not the most exciting place, but it’s different, and you should go if you’re close by. The funniest part was watching the Eastern European tourists sprawled out taking sexy pics, even though they weren’t even in the same time zone as sexy.
