I discovered that "poring" is the name of the giant bamboo species that grows there - definitely NOT to be confused with the rate that the water comes out of the taps in the plunge pools. Be prepared to wait an hour if you want water deep enough to plunge any part of your anatomy! We were all dressed up in our swimming costumes ready for a therapeutic plunge but we ended up abandoning the procedure after about 15 minutes when the water could just about bathe the soles of our feet! I think the other thing that I found somewhat alarming is that the guides and books enthuse about the benefits of these springs in curing terrible skin conditions - and then they invite you to hop into a tub that someone has not long jumped out of! I know that a lot of skin conditions are not at all contagious - but hey - some are! An antiseptic spray bottle to wipe down the tub would be welcome guys! We didn't go for the private rooms - they may have walls but I don't think there is any guarantee that they are cleaned between customers either, and to my mind someone with a terrible disfiguring skin condition would be more likely to have used the private baths. Well, enough of my neuroticism. It was vaguely interesting, and fun to be a part of the experience in the public tubs, but not a great attraction for me (or the kids).
