Sankampaeng Hot Springs
Sankampaeng Hot Springs is an ideal destination for those interested in health
and well-being. A natural spring emitting water with high sulphur content, the
spring is said to cure ailments and rejuvenate the body. The water has a
temperature in excess of 100 degrees centigrade and the area is so active that
there is ongoing research into how to tap the springs as a potential energy
resource. A trip to the springs is often combined with a trip to Sankampaeng
Handicraft Village and Borsang Umbrella and Thai Handicraft Village.
Details: The springs are open daily and there is no admission fee. For those
interested in a lengthier look around, it is possible to book accommodation
through the Sankamphaeng Hot Spring Co-operative Village (01-510-0418). Huts
with mineral baths have been constructed; there is a restaurant, a camping area
and good places for picnics.
How to get there: To get to the springs you first need to go to Sankamphaeng
district and then travel another 12 kilometers to the springs. As with many other
destinations, a number of tours to the springs are available from the city. Given
the distance involved, and the number of sites available en route, a tour bus
might be the best approach.
To get there by “songtaew” from Sankampaeng town costs about 200 baht, but it
is a long ride and you probably wouldn’t be very comfortable.
The drive to the small weaving village of Sankampaeng passes a large number of
handicraft shops and the famous umbrella village of Bo Sang. Some three
kilometres beyond the village, is a pleasant forty-acre park containing hot
springs. The park has been well landscaped and in the cool season the flowers are
