It was a pleasure to relax in a mineral hot springs after, or during a hot day in Thailand. Thom's elephant camp added an element of luxury to the experience offering mineral tubs under the roof.

I stayed in Pai for 10 days with a friend in April, the hot springs were great. We visited them twice. The pools have signs to say how hot they were, so you could choose your comfort levels. The signs tell you not to stay in for longer than 15 minutes at a time and to drink plenty of fluids.

A very interesting attraction. It is an outdoor onsen that has no strict rules to what you can and cannot do (unlike japan). Thai onsen, i would say. There are mostly foreigners that go there and they actually look more excited than thai people. The temperature is just about right, could be hotter in the winter. I would suggest travellers...

The water was too hot, we couldn't sit there more than an hour. The environment and the nature is amazing but the admission fee (300 baths) is just too much.

Was three hundred baht to go in but was nice to sit in the hot baths to relax. Was quiet in there so could choose which temperature to experience. We also bought some eggs which you we're able to boil in the hottest spring which was a nice idea.

This place was on our tour plan and we travelled in the hot season, when there were very few visitors, so it was nice to enjoy the mineral water, but it's not a "must".

for foreigners 300baht per head is actually seemed a lot, because it is, considering the fact that the Hot Springs itself is definitely not that all that it seems. It is like a highway robbery, there is one nicer hot springs in Chiangmai and it doesn't cost like this absurd amount and much cleaner and organized. It does not even... More

Good to go around 7AM when the weather is still cool. Should be able to catch up all other attractions along the route 1095 on the way back.

Along the 1095 route you eventually come to the hot springs. You have to pay 300bht entrance fee. A bit steep, but considering I have visited a fair few tourist attractions on the way for free, I don't begrudge paying. The springs range from 32 - 37 degrees for you to enjoy. You can also walk a bit further and... More

We went to the hot springs later in the day, probably around 4. We wanted the sun to go down a bit before jumping in hot water. The hot springs were pretty incredible. They were beautiful and clean and most importantly, hot. It was fun trying out the different temperatures. There's also some nice branches to take pictures on. Be... More
