Thaweesin hot springs, a special way to boil eggs, Chiang Rai

On our way from Chiang Mai to Chiang Rai, in the northern part of Thailand, we stop at the Twaweesin hot springs. Around the hot spring, locals made a garden and built some shops. Everything is rather primitive and we cannot imagine that many non-guided tourists find this place. Here you can boil eggs in still natural water of 95 degrees Celsius. Don’t put your hands or feet in it. A bit further where the temperature is lower, it becomes possible.

On the same road, there is a building which looks like a temple. We enter, explore it and discover it is brand new, however already deserted. One of the neighbors told us this project was to be a Wellness center with hotel. They said the owner had been arrested on suspicion of drugs trafficking. The land is now in the hands of the government and the project stopped. A pity no-one else continues the construction.

Onderweg van Chiang Mai naar Chiang Rai, in het noorden van Thailand, stoppen we aan de Thaweesin heet water bronnen. De lokale bevolking heeft hier een tuin en wat winkeltjes gebouwd. Alles lijkt heel primitief en we kunnen ons niet voorstellen dat er hier veel niet begeleidde toeristen halt houden. Men kookt er eitjes in natuurlijke bronnen van 95 graden Celsius. Hier geen pootje baden aub. Iets verder waar het wat minder warm is, is dit wel mogelijk. 

Aan dezelfde weg staat er een gebouw dat op een tempel lijkt. We gaan binnen en ontdekken dat alles nieuw gebouwd is, maar echter verlaten. Een buur verteld ons dat dit een Welness centrum met hotel zou worden. De eigenaar zou vermoedelijk gearresteerd zijn op verdenking van drugshandel. De gronden en het project zijn in beslag genomen. Een spijtige zaak dat niemand dit project verder zet.
