While Krabi is known for its idyllic beaches, it also has nature reserves and jungles to explore; it’s in such a place you will find the rejuvenating Klong Thom Hot Springs.
Planning a Visit
This site is close to the Khao Phra Bang Khram Nature Reserve and is around 70 km from the main town. Those staying at properties such as Avani Ao Nang Cliff Krabi Resort will find it’s only a little over an hour away. The hot springs are open from 07:00am to 06:00pm and don’t forget to bring your towel!
One of the great things about the Klong Thom Hot Springs is the idyllic setting; those visiting from a hotel Ao Nang, Krabi has to offer will find this site set amidst a tropical rainforest which forms a shaded canopy above. The cascading waters form small baths or pools in which to enjoy a therapeutic soak!
The thermal springs from which these waters flow originate from underground volcanic chambers; the waters are around 35 to 42 degrees Celsius, while they are also rich in natural mineral salts that some believe have healing properties which can help those with ailments like rheumatism.
More to Do & Explore
Once done, you can head downstream to where these waters flow into a stream and have a refreshing dip. Within easy reach of this site is the Thung Teao Forest Natural Park which is worth exploring too; here, you will find the Emerald Pool and Blue Lagoon, two other mesmerising natural attractions in Krabi.
