San Kamphaeng Hot Springs
It is not really a tourist visit but a very nice day trip from Chiang Mai. A good bath in mineral hot water is always a pleasant and relaxing experience and good for health. And it's fun too because you can buy small baskets with 3 eggs (20 THB) or more and cook them in the naturally hot water.

San Kamphaeng Hot Springs water is at 105 degrees Celcius (ideal for cooking an egg) and lost its heat in contact with the air. In the busiest part, there are several long pools where you can sit to soak your feet. The water temperature there is between 40 and 50 ° C depending on the location. Behind, there is a pool for children where they can fully bathe and further you will fond the 2 geysers (no access) and in front of them, the basins with small hooks to suspend your basket with eggs to cook them. If that's not enough to feed you, there is a restaurant near the mineral bath pool and some stalls selling roast chicken, Thai salads ...
But what remains the best place when you come here is the mineral bath pool (entrance fee is very cheap, see below) where you can fully bathe and even swim a bit. There are also two small massage parlors (THB 200 per hour or THB 120 for 30 minutes). Note that there many people come here on weekends. Many Thai people like to come here with their family.
