We booked a 1/2 day trip to the Hot Springs with Amporn Tours as we had a great experience with them on another tour. This time our driver spoke very little English and took us to the wrong hot springs. He didn't want to take us to San Kamphaeng and kept saying it was dirty. When we got there it... More

Sankampaeng Hot Spring is located 40 km. from Chiang Mai town and the journey is picturesque with scenic views of the mountains, through foot hills, paddy fields and plam nut oil tree plantations. It is emitting water with high sulphur content and said to cure ailments and rejuvenate the body. The water seems to be gushing out from a deep... More

I read the reviews before I went to San Kamphaeng Hot Springs. I absolutely don't get why anyone would post a one or two star negative review. This is a very lovely well-maintained park setting. Shade trees and flowers everywhere. It cost $2.80 to get in. Well worth it. The hot mineral stream for your feet is to die for.... More

We stayed in the hot spring region and was about 2 km away so we dropped by for a visit. It is a nice park to relax in, with many locals making the visit as a fun day out for the family. Basic facilities so don't expect too much. We spent about 2 hours there having a casual soak for... More

We have been to the hot springs a number of times and it has remained the same for the last 10 years. There has been no attempt to over commercialize the property and therefore has remained very natural. If you go there take your bathing costume and towel and go to the hot spring baths where you can soak in... More

Maybe we set our expectations too high when we decided we wanted to visit this place. The place has been ruined by all the concrete channels to divert the water creating uninviting false concrete streams to dip your feet in or sit in. Yes there are a couple of hot geysers sprouting but no natural bathing pools, which is what... More

Located at 30/40 km from Chiang Mai you need a car to go. Only 2 miserable hot springs. Nothing extraordinary except the fact that the place is quiet and surrounded by beautiful moutains. A strong smell of sulfur which is quite normal in such place. You can take a bath at the swimming pool in hot water Not many tourists... More

I was looking for something nature-y to do over the weekend and thought that I'd get out of the city and see some of the natural splendor that Chiang Mai had to offer. The driver of the Taxi (Yor, a really great guide and driver here for the meter taxis) advised me to go check out the hot springs. It... More
