The bubbling hot springs are in a small, well-kept park. Their strong sulfur smell brings ‘the geyser’ to mind, and the springs on their own are not particularly interesting. However, there’s a cold-water stream that mixes with the hot spring water (of some 80 degrees), flowing into a series of natural pools, surrounded by plantations. The lower the stair – the colder the water.
The entire area is lovely, pleasant, and entertaining, and many argue that the hot spring water has excellent healing qualities – I don’t know if it’s true, but you’ll have fun visiting and bathing here, that’s for sure.
Pai hot springs are located some 8 km outside of town. The site is open daily from 7 AM to 6 PM and the admission fee is around 300 baht.
My Opinion: Pai Hot Springs, One of the best hot springs I’ve been to; highly recommended.
