These Hot Springs in Northern Thailand Are a Perfect Day Escape

Deep in Northern Thailand, some 16 miles (26 kilometres) from Chiang Mai lies the Sippa Hotspring in Mae On, far away from the maddening crowds of the city.

Natural spas like these are dotted around the north amongst caves and green mountains, offering both travellers and locals alike a chance to experience natural relaxation undisturbed.

You may find some of these hot-water beds residing in nature reserves such as the Tha Pai Hot Springs in the Huai Nam Dang National Park. Here, enjoy a meal of boiled quail eggs or treat yourself to a Thai massage under the open sky.

Combined with trekking expeditions, bike rides and all-night camping, the hot springs in the north will make your Thailand itinerary worth talking about.
