Betong Hot Springs

Best visited in conjunction with a trip to Piyamit Tunnels, these hot springs can hard-boil an egg in 7 minutes.

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

The springs have been built into a pool structure with a walkway to the centre where some of the springs can be seen, though they have been covered with a wire contraption. Do NOT put your hand in the water under the wire (like a silly researcher) as it is extremely hot. The rest of the pond is very warm and there is a second pond where you can dangle your feet (not your socks though) for some supposed mineral medical miracle. The springs are worth visiting if you have nothing better to do.

How to get there
The springs are best visited by chartered tuk tuk in conjunction with a visit to the tunnels. Expect to pay around 200-300B for the tuk tuk including waiting time, a visit to the tunnels and Phramahathat Chedi
