Small but fun. Scenery getting there was beautiful - lots of farming countryside. Loads of school kids there for school trips and Thai families setting up picnics on the grass. The onsen eggs were not for us but it was still fun buying the eggs and the special baskets and cooking the eggs in the hot springs. We were the only foreign tourists there. Did not make it to the waterfall - and it was too hot to consider the bathing portion of the hot springs. Would def. recommend.

After paying an entrance fee (40 baht for Thai and 200 bath for foreigner), visitors will enter into this amazing national park. There are many hot springs (with a light smell of sulphur) surrounded by many rocks scattered on the grassy field. Average temperature of the hot springs is approximately 75 degrees celsius. Popular activity in this zone is to buy eggs and boil them in these hot springs (with a suitable time indicated on the signboard at each pool) making "onsen tamago".

The other zone is Chae Son waterfall. Accessible by hiking, this beautiful waterfall has 6 levels. There is a pond with many fish at some levels, so don't forget to buy food to feed them.

Another activity is "onsen". Relax yourself in the private hut and enjoy hot tubs with 40 degrees celsius mineral water directly from hot spring (50 baht).

This is Lampang's hidden gem. It's one of the most beautiful places in Lampang. It's a ways out of the city, but if you rent a motorbike or take the train, it's one of the MOST AMAZING rides of your life. The views along the rode are like nothing you'll ever seen. The Northern Thailand landscapes are unparalleled.

I've heard some people complain about the price - it's really not bad cmon! Yes, locals have a lower price - but that reflects the salary ratio of what local Thais make.

20 baht for locals (75 cents in US) vs. 200 baht for foreigners (around 6 USD). Like seriously?? Are you really going to complain about 6 dollars? the average monthly salary for an avg worker in Lampang is around 15,000 baht (500 dollars) so yeah, they are going to have a cheaper price. I know this because I lived in Lampang. Don't complain!

THE thing to do in Chae Son is to boil eggs in the hot springs. It's an "only in Thailand" experience. Something about the temperature or the minerals makes the eggs boil from the inside out. So if you boil for 15 minutes, you will get an egg that has a soft-boiled yolk and a gelatinous (but cooked) egg white. It slides right out of the shell. Eat with soy sauce. Best egg you'll ever taste.

There are also many hikes to waterfalls and such in Chae Son. There are free places to swim in the hot springs too and you will often see local kids splashing around. It is truly a local hidden gem.

Beautiful surroundings combined market and small shop at visitors centre. We parked at the visitors centre and walked 700m along the water over bridges to access the closest waterfall.
It was 44 degrees the locals were bathing in the cool springs and had picnics on the grassland.
We exited by the car park closest to the near waterfall. We bought some eggs to cook in the hot springs with the locals.

Excellent spot to spend an afternoon. Try the hot tubs in the huts! I tried to cook an egg in the hot springs, but apparently did not wait long enough for it to be hardboiled.

The park is wonderful and great place to hang out for families but when i went there were too many people and it was hot so i do not feel like putting my feet in hot water. The waterfall on the otherhand is nice with soooo many fish you can feed. The bathroom facility and private rooms can improve a bit with cleanliness.

A good place to relax. I've been here a couple times. We went camping and it was cheaper to bring your own stuff. There's a really nice park ranger that takes care of the camping site, but some of the other ones were a bit rude.
Cleanliness- 4/5
Friendliness- 3/5
Environment- 5/5
To get there, the roads are a bit rough for small motorbikes. There are public bathrooms to use, where you can also charge your electronic devices. There's a hot spring and waterfalls in the same park which is awesome. I recommend going back and forth between the hot spring and the cold stream, really relaxing for the muscles and boosts immune system... probably haha.
*foreigners price is a bit higher than locals but it's worth it.

It’s unbelievable how every national place of Thailand had become somewhat of their income they turn somthing natural and beautiful place into somthing profitable I am not stingy I don’t mind paying but it’s really frustrating that foreigners have to pay 10x times more then thai people 20baht for Thai 200 for falang this I couldn’t accept so I ended up turning around would not recommend

This place is beautiful! The hot springs are not great for bathing as they're so hot the locals come with a basket of eggs to boil them in the springs. However there is a river that meets the hot springs making it a great place to cool off. There is a little area where you can get a massage also, which is very relaxing with the sound of the river in the background. Further up the road there is a gorgeous waterfall with about 6 tiers that you can climb up. Even though it's quite a far drive from Chiang Mai this was a wonderfully unique experience!
