From the Land of the Rising Sun to the Land of Smiles, onsens have become a respected and revered leisure activity for many. Although visiting an onsen is the ultimate way to unwind, the benefits of these Japanese hot springs go beyond tranquility. Onsens also assist in making your skin more radiant, relaxing any strained muscles, flushing out toxins, and increasing blood circulation. All in all, it’s the perfect way to rejuvenate and relax, especially after months of lockdown.
Now that the ease of restrictions permits it, here are five onsens in Bangkok that offer the authentic Japanese hot spring experience.
