These hot springs located about fifteen kilometers from Phatthalung city have a water that comes out naturally around 60 °C. If the complex used probably to be very nice when it opened, it now a little abandoned for lack of customers but according to residents with whom I discussed a renovation project will probably start soon. If the individual bath cabins are no longer in good condition, the main pool can still be used for soaking your feet and relaxing. People also stay here for the horde of monkeys living on the site. Although they are generally not aggressive at all, I must remind that in case of scratching or biting, you have to go straight to the hospital because rabies is not eradicated in Thailand. The well-being foot bath and the monkeys finally make it a nice little stop even if it is sad to see some of the place being dilapidated. You can also go visit the Yai Hom Cave and the Kao Chaison Cave which are next door.
With Nam Yen cave and the Buddha cave nearby it makes a nice small excursion especially if you end it with a relaxing meal at the Kaeng Nam Hu Rae restaurant sitting in one of its small huts on stilts installed on the river. You can also play in the water (especially children) or go kayaking. A typical Thai address which is about 1 km from the hot springs (GMap location and details here).
