Pamukkale, Turkey

Pammukale, or Cotton Castle as it is sometimes called, is a truly magical collection of hot springs in Turkey. The large chalk content of the water gives the springs their famous glimmmering white look.

Pammukale was partly ruined by tourism in the twentieth century when hotels were built on top of the springs. However since becoming a UNESCO World Heritage Site the hotels have been pulled down and the springs are now returning to their former glory.
