Hot Springs

For those with time on their hands

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 2 stars

Hardly worth mentioning are the 'hot springs' 4km outside town to the west. Dozens of White Thai families have set up shop offering a bath in some geo-thermically extruded spring water for 10,000 VND / person per hour.

Some of the tubs are sunken concrete affairs, big enough for two people. We heard that there was a communal option where you could bathe for free, but on our visit the locals insisted there was no such thing. No worries in any case — one of the owners ran the tap for us to test the water, and it wasn't hot, it was luke warm. Maybe they needed to run the take longer.

How to get there: To get here, take Dien Bien Phu and take a left at the prison, and the road winds 4km on to the village. You can't miss it.
