Attractions in Betong, Thailand – Betong Hot Springs

Aside from the Piyamit Communist Tunnels and the Winter Flower Garden , another popular attraction while visiting the southern Thai border town of Betong its its natural Hot Springs. Hold the bikinis though – the springs are not meant for soaking the body, since it’s a big public pool and doesn’t seem that hygienic. ._.” Entry is free.

A nice park built around the springs, perfect for a morning stroll. Some really cute statues of Betong’s famous chickens, ridden by a colourful costumed character (?)

We arrived there around noon so it was pretty hot, but there were several kids taking a full-body soak. Everyone else sat around the edges and dipped their legs into the water. The weather + hot water had us sweating in seconds, lol. Unfortunately I don’t think the springs are open at night so it’s best to come in the morning.

Drumsticks lol.

There was another pool adjacent to the one we were soaking our feet in but that was not open to the public since the temperatures are extremely hot. There was also a small well where you could cook eggs (!), which are sold by a local vendor.

As the springs are located within a village, there are also lots of souvenir/snack shops/cafes around the area.
