This is a place to rest and relax in a beautiful natural setting, close to the city of Chiang Mai.
In addition to the leisure and health facilities based on the hot sulphur springs.
A good opportunity to mingle with local tourists, who are very fond of this kind of leisure.
Located in the heart of the countryside, 36 km from Chiang Mai, the hot spring resort of Sankhampaeng offers the chance to spend a few hours or even one or two days resting and relaxing at the facilities and taking advantage of the medicinal properties of its springs.
One of the most curious things to do here is to buy small baskets of eggs to boil at the springs, a way to benefit from the minerals they absorb from the sulphured water through the shell. The underground springs reach the surface at over 100 degrees centigrade.
Eggs have a symbolic meaning for these people, they are shared in some marriage rituals, they are smashed on the ground in ancient funeral ceremonies, and they represent life because of their remarkable nutritional qualities.
Hot springs are common throughout Thailand and are a popular venue for both local tourists and those from other Asian countries close-by, such as the Chinese and Koreans.
These are recreation areas where you can have an afternoon picnic or even stay for a couple of days at a spa.
