The Phasoet Hot Spa is about 10km outside Chiang Rai.
It’s not a tourist destination. There are no garishly painted buses full of Chinese, Russian, or Japanese being herded by their handlers. There are no food carts, souvenir vendors, or aggressive tuk tuk drivers hawking gems to woebegones. There is just hot water bubbling out of the ground being funneled to a pool and a spa with an attendant and some friendly locals taking a dip.
Couldn’t find it on Google maps. That is how little noted the spa is outside of Thailand.
Here are the vital stats on the water.
I’m not much of a believer in the health benefits of hot springs. It has the unpleasant aroma of terminal cancer patients guzzling Lourdes water desperately expecting God to make their cancer disappear, moronic Chinese chewing Rhino Testicle Extract hoping for a quality erection, uneducated yahoos who don’t accept or understand the scientific method “smartly” refusing vaccinations because every one “knows” Big Pharma are snake oil salesmen, vaccinations don’t work and cause Alzheimer’s disease, and middle aged Vietnamese poker players installing pontoon sized breasts implants convinced they are defeating the aging process and making themselves more attractive.
I’m no expert but the lead can’t be too healthy and the rest of the ingredients look like a label on a box of baking soda or toothpaste.
This is the boiling basing where you can boil your eggs.
The minerals leach into the egg making them more “healthy”.
Not sure how .01% lead in the boiling water is going to improve your health though.
This is the main spa where the hot water is pumped and you can soak or go for a swim.
Maybe I am wrong about the health benefits because the mineral water seem to be keeping this middle aged Thai women looking like a teenager.
