Time basically ran out on us and we were left with only two further stops in Turkey: Pamukkale and Selçuk.  It's a fair hike on a bus to get from the coast to Pamukkale but the dual attractions of the white, mineral water filled terraces and the ruins of ancient Hierapolis make it a worthwhile trip. We booked in for two days but should have only stayed one as the town  of Pamukkale itself was an oddly se... Read More »
