Ranong, a small town tucked away on the West side of the Southern Thai strip, is the place perfect for hot spring indulgence. This geothermal region of Thailand has been a popular spot for health-seeking visitors since the beginning of time. Now, visitors can enjoy soaking up the natural hot springs amidst the lush forest at the Raksawarin Public Park or choose from one of the many accommodation premises with in-house hot spring facilities.
Sitting on the Kra Isthmus – Thailand’s narrowest strip – Ranong is a quirky portal town with mixed cultures. A great destination if you like the lushness of nature, the aforementioned hot springs, and the pure solitude of a small town.
