4. Pai Taradon Hot Spring
It is a naturally occurring hot spring in Pai, which is a sight to behold. The geyser looks majestic, with steam enveloping the surface.
Although there are no pools here to take a dip, the view is worth checking out once. The hot water flows into a nearby river where you can sit and relax.
The water temperature at the Pai Taradon Hot Spring is high enough to boil eggs on it.
There are several small stalls selling eggs in baskets that you can boil yourself over the hot spring.
I would highly recommend you to try this once if you haven’t experienced it before.

Hot Springs could be amazing recreational spots, especially in a tropical country like Thailand.
However, sometimes the temperature of the hot stream water gets very high and can cause burns if spatters.
Therefore be very careful to enquire about the temperature well in advance and keep a close watch on the kids.
