KRABI HOT SPRINGS

A Dive into Nature’s Jacuzzi

The Krabi Hot Springs, located in the heart of a rainforest, are a testament to nature’s wonders. The springs are a part of the Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve, a place rich in biodiversity. The main attraction, the Emerald Pool, is a crystal-clear lagoon that beckons visitors with its inviting waters. A short walk through the Thung Teao Forest National Park leads you to this natural wonder, making the journey as enchanting as the destination itself.

More Than Just a Hot Spring

While the Emerald Pool is a major draw, the Krabi Hot Springs have more to offer. The Blue Pool, although not suitable for bathing due to its high temperatures and quicksand, is a sight to behold with its vibrant hues. Moreover, the Krabi Hot Springs are not just about relaxation; they are believed to have therapeutic properties. The mineral salts in the spring water are said to benefit the skin and alleviate various ailments, although scientific backing for these claims is limited.

A Day Well Spent

Visiting the Krabi Hot Springs is more than just a quick stop. Located about 65 kilometers from Ao Nang, it’s a full-day excursion, especially if you plan to combine it with a visit to other attractions like the Tiger Cave Temple. For those looking for a comprehensive experience, several tours offer a combination of the hot springs, Emerald Pool, and other Krabi highlights.

Practical Information

 
The entrance fee for the Emerald Pool is 400 Thai Baht for foreign tourists, with separate charges for parking and amenities. The best time to visit is during weekdays in the early morning to avoid crowds. For those hungry after their dip, local vendors offer a range of Thai delicacies right at the entrance.

The entrance fee of 100 baht was a small price to pay for the wealth of experiences that awaited me. At the entrance, I had the chance to purchase quail and hen eggs in woven bamboo baskets, ready to be boiled in special tanks within the park. Cooking eggs in the hot springs felt like a blend of relaxation and culinary adventure.

Sankampang Hot Springs is not only a place of relaxation but also a hub of wellness. The high sulphur content in the water provides various health benefits, including improved blood circulation and relief from certain ailments. As I soaked in the mineral pools, I felt a sense of renewal and rejuvenation, with the heat of the water washing away any stress or fatigue.

In addition to the mineral baths, San Kamphaeng Hot Springs offers a range of activities to enjoy. Soaking your legs and feet in the soothing watercourse, boiling eggs at the source, enjoying a picnic in the beautiful garden, swimming in the mineral pools, and even indulging in spa options like foot massages – the options for relaxation are endless.

FINAL VERDICT

The Krabi Hot Springs, with their therapeutic waters and stunning natural backdrop, offer a rejuvenating experience. Whether you’re looking to relax, explore, or simply marvel at nature’s wonders, the hot springs of Krabi promise a memorable day out.
