Hot springs in Thailand
Nice weather doesn´t leave us at the luxury hotel in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa. That´s why today we are travelling to Thailand to enjoy a relaxing afternoon at some of its most popular hot springs. Are you coming?
Hot springs are springs with water at high temperatures, since this groundwater rises from the Earth´s crust. Due to the features of their formation, they contain diverse mineral salts.
They are famous due to their healing powers. Both hot springs´ heat and minerals are known for healing different types of physical discomforts.
Thai culture has always had strong links with nature, especially water. There are several places at Northern Thailand and Southern Thailand where we can find spring waters.
Sankampaeng. Located in Chiang Mai, these ones are the most famous hot springs in Thailand. December and January are the most crowded months. Stare at the spectacular landscape surrounding Sankampaeng while soaking your legs and feet in the hot spring water is an unforgettable experience.
Pong Nam Ron Pong Dueat. Also known as Pong Dueat Pa Pae, these hot springs are situated in Huai Nam Dang National Park, in Chiang Mai. They were discovered in 1957.
Pong Nam Ron Tha Pai. These hot springs are also located in Huai Nam Dang National Park. The average temperature is about 80 degrees Celsius, but there are areas where the temperature is perfect for a relaxing bath (35º).
Namtok Ron Khlong Thom. This spectacular hot spring waterfall is located in the slope of a valley, 60 kilometres away from Krabi. The waterfall goes down forming natural wells, which work as jacuzzis heated to 35-40 degrees.
If you are also a hot springs lover, the 5 stars resort in Alicante Asia Gardens Hotel & Thai Spa has 4 pools heated to 30 degrees all year round. Enjoying a relaxing bath at our Asian paradise is up to you…
