    Traveling While Black

    We took a day trip from Antalya to visit Pammukale. It was about a 4 hr drive. We rented our own car but there are tour companies that will drive you from Istanbul and Cappadocia. We preferred our own transportation so that we could be there before the crowds and catch the sunrise over the beautiful thermal pools. In November, it was absolutely freezing, but we’re sure it’s warmer in summer. We preferred to go when cold so that we could really enjoy the pools! As the sun was rising, we were even greeted by hot air balloons while we relaxed in the warm thermal pools which was super cool! There are tons of stray dogs around there but they were all so sweet!! Also on the site was Hieropolis which is incredibly historic and was amazing to explore! Tickets to both attractions were about $10 USD. If you have time to spare, we think it’s worth seeing!

    Traveling While Black

    Pamukkale is a lesser known international destination but very popular within Turkey. Its very easily accessible through tour companies that will bring you from major cities like Istanbul and Cappadocia, and while I’m sure they are nice and convenient I opted to be my own tour guide so I could move at my own pace and most importantly dodge the crowds. Now, when I say crowds I mean a parking lot full of tour buses pulling up at the same time. When I went there was about 10 tour buses full of Chinese tourists staying at my hotel, literally. And if you’ve been anywhere with Chinese tourists you know how difficult they can be to navigate around and they make it very hard to get pictures because their cultural norms of “waiting your turn” are not quite the same. I stayed at the Richmond Hotel Pamukkale Thermal Resort and I HIGHLY recommend. Its pretty budget friendly I think I paid around $80 per night. Its pretty close to the upper entrance of park which starts with Hierapolis. I went as soon as the park opened so I could enjoy some peace and quiet before the tours showed up. If I would do it again I would have started at the bottom entrance which starts at the bottom of the travertines for some sunrise photos without the crowds. The whole park includes the Hierapolis ruins, travertines, and Cleopatra’s pool. Park entrance fees will grant you access to the ruins and travertines but Cleopatra’s pool is an extra cost. There’s also a small museum on the park grounds as well. If you’re adventurous or a well experienced traveler I highly suggest doing it on your own!

    Traveling While Black

    I went on a day trip to Pamukkale, Turkey in March, 2017. Took an early flight out on Turkish airlines from Istanbul to Pamukkale. Once I landed, there was a bus at the airport that takes you to all the tourist attractions, such the Travertines, the Hierapolis city ruins and theater, and the Pamukkale antique pool. Which are all within walking distance of each other. Once the bus stopped in Pamukkale. I walked around and compared prices with the tour agencies. I picked an agency and they added me to a tour starting at the Hierapolis city ruins, which led into the theater, Pamukkale antique pool and Travertines.

    They take you to some gift shops and feed you before they drop you back off. Hierapolis City Ruin, which is a city that destroyed by an earthquake. That led to the Pamukkale ancient pool and Hierapolis Theater. The ancient pool was so dope, it was cold outside when I visited but since the pool is heated with mineral rich hot spring water it was a delight. Last major stop on the Tour was the calcium deposit hot spring area known as Travertines. The pictures from online don’t do it any justice, it’s an incredible sight to see. After the tour I went back to the airport and took my flight back to Istantbul. I didn’t stay the night because the tour had shown me most of the attractions in the city and the town looked abandoned, since it was the down season for tourism.

    There’s so much to do in Pamukkale.
