On the way to the White Temple, there is a popular tourist stop that is a hot spring. And while there is nothing really spectacular about it, it is good way to unwind after a semi-long drive. I love hot springs, because there is something very relaxing about soaking your feet in hot water.
But its more than that, there are eggs. And eggs = good stuff. Therefore, hot spring where you can soak feet and cook eggs is double bonus. The next time you are up in Chiang Mai heading up north, stop by a hot spring along the way.
