Hot springs in Krabi or Hot Springs - when you want to beat the heat

Krabi has a few hot spots.sources, but those for which I came, are considered the most pop. Google knows this location called Krabi Hot Stream or Hot Springs Waterfall. Hot Springs is a cascade of fonts, remotely resembling the Turkish Pamukkale, only small and not at all white. Hot water hits right out of the ground, and in different tubs different water temperatures. When you make a route, keep in mind that there are still sources of salt water Solein Hot Spring 20 km from here. There is an opinion that they are more beneficial to health, tourists are not brought there so actively, and the place is considered to be purely Thai. So, go there if you are looking for authentic, non-tourist attractions.

Hot springs in Krabi

So, what are thermalsprings in Krabi (Namtok Ron Waterfall, Khlong Thom Hot Waterfal, Hot Spring Ron Waterfall), yes, this place has a million names. This is a closed park area, with its parking, shopping malls and restaurants near the entrance gate. There are several administrative buildings, a SPA hotel, small pools near the entrance to the territory of hot springs and a large playground. Pools are a light version of the sources, more comfortable and not so hot. People sit around artificial ponds filled with the same water as in a waterfall. Someone is immersed in water completely, someone is limited only by their feet. On the territory laid cement paths with tiles as a decor, and in some places where the path is replaced by decomposed stone slabs. Looks shitty, but cute.

A lot of people are sitting in the pools, but they are lessmore popular than the Ron Waterfall itself is a hot waterfall. I did not take a bath either in the pool or in the fonts, because for me it looked like a dubious pleasure, because on the street there was already a heat of about 30 degrees. And hot water in this weather is not at all refreshing, but rather the opposite - I risked boiling completely. In principle, to prevent such cases, there is a tablet hanging near the waterfall, where it is written how much you can sit in water without health consequences. The recommended cooking time for a tourist is no longer than 15–20 minutes, but people sit there for hours, without eyes.

I have been to hot springs more than once and I knowwhat it is, so I did not try to taste the local waters. Despite the fact that the place is tourist, 70 percent of visitors were local. Perhaps due to the fact that I came on a day off, and besides, there was some Thai holiday. That is, if you mentally remove the Thais from the picture, then not so many tourists came to Namtok Ron. I counted about six people who flashed before my eyes for all the time I was here.

Namtok Ron is a stream that is formedseveral underground hot keys and flows into the river Thom. And it flows literally - from a height of about three meters the water noisily rolls down the steps-tubs, in which people soak. Quite an unusual entertainment and feelings of a kind, because going into the water, you will expect cool by habit, and the effect of a bath is obtained. In some baths, the water is indeed cool, in others it is just warm, but there are several where it won't work for a long time - the keys are beating right in the back or in the seat. In the river below, the water is cool, and hot streams make their way from the bottom of the river too, but it does not hurt to step on them.

Parking price: 40 baht per car and 10 baht per scooter.

Hot springs work time - from 8 am to 5 pm

Near the waterfall there is a Thai massage, 300 baht peran hour and 150 for half an hour. From the parking at the main gate to the source, people carry golf carts, for 20 baht per person, but in principle there is only five minutes to go, and golf carts are an option for very lazy people.

Two roads lead from the gates to the waterfall: wide asphalt, turning into a path paved with tiles, and the second - Natural Trail. This path goes through the jungle, along the hot river and through the thickets of bamboo, which is very nicely spread out in different directions to form a path. Both options are about the same time walk. The Neutral Trail is approximately 300 meters long.

It will take about an hour to visit the whole park, if you have a goal - to look around and swim. Infrastructure is not as rich as on the Emerald Lake, did not see the cafes at all. But about a couple of minutes away on the road in the opposite direction there will be a civilized cafe.
