Wiang Pa Pao
Wiang Pa Pao Chiang Rai
Wiang Pa Pao is the southwesternmost district (Amphoe) of Chiang Rai Province, northern Thailand. Wiang Pa Pao is located in a picturesque green valley surrounded by mountains. Attractions include Bo Nam Ron (hotspring), Khun Chae National Park with steep terrain and several hilltops and cliffs over 1,400 metre high.
Wiang Pa Pao Hot Springs
The aforementioned Chiang Mai- Chiang Rai.com site describes the following:
Wieng Pa Pao hot spring is located at a midway point between Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai on highway 1019. Most people travelling by road stop at Wieng Pa Pao for a short break. Here are restaurants, a fresh produce and flower market and a bazaar selling items made by the hill tribes and lowland Thais. One popular activity at the hot spring is to hard boil eggs in the boiling water. The clever vendors have attached baskets on a long pole making the activity safe and fun for customers of all age to boil the eggs. If you can't encourage your children to cook at home, they will love to boil eggs here. Other than this the hot spring hasn't been develop for recreation use but plans are underway to develop this spring as a spa.
Oddly enough again the map situates them elsewhere, just off highway 1150, two kms from highway 118. We recommend Suanthip Vana Resort for accommodation.
