“just a minute visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2013

I've been visit here otw to the white temple and long neck village. What i can share in here, just small hot springs water. That was natural from the earth source. And some people in there try to attract u with the eggs that can be easily cooked with this hot springs. Many sellers also provide snack, gold jewelry, and some souvenir. No need to stay more longer in here.

“Rustic well-landscaped resort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Interesting place to visit if you self-drive. Natural hot spring and geyser side by side. There are onsen baths available on the resort ground for a small fee. If you are into onsen, you should try, if not there is an open air hot spring foot spa but the water temperature is too high for comfort, not recommended to soak your feet into it. Scenic drive on route and back to chiang mai going through padi farms and villages.

“Touristy and nothing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

This place is purely for a stopover for tourist heading to Chiang Rai, its included in every tour guide. Theres a fish spa and some hot spring water for you to soak your leg in, it cost 5B to use the toilet and lots of coffee/handicraft/meatball stall setup for tourist, dont come here if your not heading to Chiang Rai..

“Just a stop on the way to bigger better things”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

WE stopped at the Hot Springs as part of a day trip to Chiang Rai.

As everyone else said, this is not worth visiting on its own. Our tour guide took us here as a first stop and we were able to use the toilets (at a cost of 5bahts) and buy a drink.

This place is just a pit stop for tourists and it isn't even disguising it.

The Hot spring is not that exciting and it just looks like a burst pipe in the middle of a car park.

“Not worth the journey”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

There's really almost nothing to do here and there are virtually no facilities. The place has a 'run-down' feel about it and lacks atmosphere. (Sorry!)

If hot springs are your kind of thing, you'd be better going to the San Kamphaeng Hot Springs which is adjacent to this one, where there are more facilities and things to do for the whole family and enough to pass a half-day without being bored. Having said that, all of these places have a kind of 'fake' feel, with little effort to disguise the infrastructure and mechanisms to drive the 'hot spring'!
