If you're looking for the original Asin Hot Springs, you’ll have to be on the lookout for a nondescript sign to your left as you are going down the narrow road to the hot springs. Several resorts have popped up in the area in the past several years, many likely more preferable for the western tourist. The original Asin Hot Springs is the one that’s been there for several decades and it’s not touristy (but that’s what makes this place more appealing). It definitely shows its age. It’s very simple (a large pool, a kiddie pool, a small hot tub heated by water from the hot springs), inflated inner tubes are rentable for a fee, several picnic tables, a grilling area for those who brought food to cook. No life guards, no one hovering over you once you pay your entrance fee. This is a clean and simple place ideal for a day of swimming.
We arrived at 10a.m. on a weekday and were the only ones there for a couple of hours before several families arrived. If you go even earlier, you might be part of the group of folks who frequent the place for lap-swimming purposes. Bring your own food or walk several hazardous steps down to the store area where apparently some cooked food can be served but it’s essentially a sari-sari store. The view from their store is quite beautiful and a few more steps down is another kiddie/shallow pool (about two feet deep).
Arrived here via private vehicle but place is accessible by jeepney from Baguio.
