Kanchanaburi Province is one of the most beautiful and unexplored places for tourists in Thailand, but if you are travelling through the region, Sai Yok Waterfall and Hindad Hot Spring are two exciting places to explore.
Also located in Sai Yok National Park, the Hindad Hot Spring (aka Hin Dat Hot Spring) is a great place to relax and unwind in a shaded location next to the river. There are three hot spring pools at Hindad Hot Spring that you can use to bathe or swim in the heart of the stunning jungle terrain.
The Old Days of Hindad Hot Spring
The springs have an exciting history and were initially built by the Japanese in World War II to store hot water. Some cold streams running close by and the combination of the two creates a spa-like atmosphere that is very relaxing and soothing. You can go quickly from cold to hot to cold again, which is the perfect way to relax your muscles.
Right next to the hot springs, you can enjoy an authentic Thai massage for a very affordable price that goes hand-in-hand with the spa-like environment.
The hot spring has changed its name over time and was called Kuimang Hot Spring. The temperatures in the pools can reach 45 to 55 degrees and be found by a Japanese soldier during the war when the site enjoyed a transformation.
Many local people believe that the natural minerals in the pools can cure all kinds of ailments that include diseases such as rheumatism and beriberi. The combination of hot and cold will help with blood flow and circulation.
Although it’s a relatively small place, Hindad Hot Spring is quite popular with Russian tourists visiting the area and more popular with locals at the weekend.
With onsite showers and dressing rooms, you will be impressed by the setup of this small spring.
The price of entry is just 10 THB and is open between 6 am and 10 pm every day of the week.
