Located at a travel stop with gift stores, 7/11 and a free foot spa.
Hot water springs and a geyser across the road if you are travelling to chaing rai.
Ladies sellin eggs for 20b that you can cook in the water.
It's there at a travel stop, it's free and just nice to see the power of nature so worth a stop on your way to or from Chaingrai.

Not worth seeking out on their own, but odds are good you will stop here on day trips north from Chiang Mai. Small hot springs with very hot water for soaking your feet surrounded by huge tourist trap markets and gimmicks.

This was the first stop of my 1 day tour of Chiang Rai from Chiang Mai.... the hot water shooting quite high .... took a few photos :)

It also has some food stalls, toilet , and a warm spring water bath for your legs just nearby.

20 or 30 years ago this small hot spring was a must-stop for anyone travelling between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai, but its former glory is long gone. Coming from Chiang Mai, the original spring is situated on the right-hand side and now in a dilapidated condition so almost all tour buses stop at what appears to be an out-of-place bazaar with dozens of shops surrounding a more recent incarnation of the geyser and a mock-Khmer temple (a reminder of Bangkok's once-famous night market?) thrown in for good measure. Don't expect any good photo ops!

This is a half way stop between Chiang Mai and Phayao and provides the amenities of pay toilets (decent by local standards) Coffee shops (numerous), Souvenir shops (more numerous) with the added attraction of a pretty hot hot spring. It is not actually artesian - there are pumps that are pumping the subsurface water up. The water is mineral rich with usual sulfurous smell - but it is not Yosemite or Rotorua so keep your expectations limited. There is one place (free) for sitting and putting your feet in a shallow channel and give your feet a hot mineral water bath, somehow I wasnt tempted and did not see anyone else doing it either. You can also buy an egg and put it in in the stream (not in the same foot bath channel!), pick it up down stream and eat a boiled egg - the water is hot enough!

After a morning of walking around a few temples it was nice to sit down soak our feet and have a cold drink and some food.
There are several cafes around the hot springs were you can sit and relax.
All the usual facilities available including a 5 baht toilet block.

Coming back from Chiang Mai we stopped at the hot springs. You can get eggs and cook them in the spring .Now i know what rotten egg gas smells like ... The ghostly temple 3 minutes up the road is alot better

We stopped for a refresher break on the tour from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai. Maybe there is more to see but the geyser in the car park was it. A continuous jetting of 90C hot smelly water approx 3m height. Locals were cooking eggs in the hot water from the small adjacent geyse as an attraction. Many, many shops and stalls. Public toilets that are disgusting although you pay a fee to use. Rude attendant. Tour buses galore of varying capacity, throngs of tourists. A major attraction? Doubtful.

We spent about 30 minutes here and that's pretty much all you need. It was cool to see the locals hard boil eggs in the hot springs. The markets were the same as in every market in Thailand. We were on a tour and this was a stop on the way but it can be skipped.

We stopped here on the way from Chiang Rai to Chiang Mai because we saw the Hot Spring navigation arrow on the way. For first sight it looks like a bad market in the middle of nowhere with some refreshemt points and Hot Springs and a newly build temple, which look like old one nearby.
After watching over we get into a small coffee just at the begining of parking place and for our surprise it was a Coffee that wins several time the international barista competitions and it was declared as a place with best coffee in whole Thailand. The coffee was really amazing - after all dissapintings over the whole Thailand.
You can drink you coffee with your feet in hot water or buy coffee right on the place.
