Our objective was to view sunset in Pamukkale on day 1 and visit for longer on day 2.
We drove from Izmir airport to Pamukkale! Left late (1 PM) and reached late (6PM) with multiple stops on the way. This meant we had little time to check in to the hotel and then head towards the south gate, where there is a big parking for only 10TL.
Entrance ticket to the site is 60 TL and there is little one'd see there after it is dark. Despite little time left in the day, we decided to buy ticket and enter the site. It turned out that we couldn't see the sunset because it was very foggy.
Nevertheless, the experience of looking at the travertines for the first time was enthralling.
