Where to find the best hot springs in GD (I)
    2017-December-18  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

TWO weeks ago we were wearing t-shirts like it was still summer, then the sudden plunge of temperature in Guangdong successfully brought winter to town as usual, leaving everyone trembling in the freezing air. In such cold weather, the best thing to do is to take a soak in a hot spring, relaxing your muscles before wrapping yourself inside the warm quilt in bed. The mineral-rich baths, which can help reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, offer a slew of natural health benefits you may not know about.

Guangdong, a province rich in hot spring resources, may still pose a headache to people who are worried about taking a “fake” hot spring bath, which would be qualitatively no different from a bath at home. The good news is that a meeting on expert certification for the water temperature and quality of hot spring sites in Guangdong was held recently, releasing the first official list of quality hot spring sites to the public.

Guangdong Hot Spring Hotel

Type: Sodium bicarbonate hot spring

Sodium bicarbonate hot springs are the rock star of hot springs. Its unique effect on all sorts of ailments ranging from rheumatic arthritis, skin diseases, neurasthenia, and the common cold makes it a favorite of the body-conscious. It clears away excess natural skin oils, promotes liver vitality, and promotes beautification not only in the surface skin but from the inside of the body as well.

Guangdong Hot Spring Hotel, located in Conghua and endowed with quality hot springs and beautiful scenery, has received numerous dignitaries from home and abroad. It is reputed as “the first hot spring in Lingnan.”

Xiangjiang Hot Spring

The hot spring here contains traces of 78 elements including silicic acid, fluorine, sulphur, zinc, copper, calcium and magnesium, all of which are universally recognized as beneficial to the human body.

Guangzhou Zengcheng Xiangjiang Hot Spring is nestled against Baishuizhai Waterfall, a scenic spot dubbed “the Emerald of the Tropic of Cancer,” which is embraced by mountains and is blessed with an enchanting ecosystem of fresh air, unique waterfalls, dense forest and vegetation, green mountains, clear streams, dancing butterflies and bees.

Joining hands with Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the hot spring initiated the first TCM-themed hot spring in the country, blending the TCM concept of “preventive treatment of disease” with the rare soda hot spring in order to promote the cultivation of TCM practices in everyday life. Tourists can choose between different types of hot springs based on their own needs.
