We keep finding new places all within walking distance of the house. One of our favorites we simply refer to as “The Bridge” as it is located near a small bridge. They make awesome Tom Yum and Fried Rice. There is not a word of English to be seen and the owner speaks very little English but still more than we speak Thai
Its nice to sit and enjoy some excellent food with a few beers. Amazingly it normally comes to less than 300 baht for the two of us. In any of the restaurants catering to the tourist the same would probably cost around 1000 baht and in this case probably not be as good. Looks like we are in the country side but actually we are close to the main tourist area of Phuket. On the other side of the Hill is Patong.
Before heading up to Ranong we did some research and discovered that Ranong is famous for natural hot springs. The a few around the City and some have accommodation. We picked the Porn Rung Hot Springs. Unfortunately access to the springs closes at 6pm so we were too late to take a dip the evening we arrived. It opens each morning at 6 am we were in the first hot spring soon after.
There are about half a dozen different pools but surprisingly all about the same temperature which is best described very hot.
There are also a number of small deep well like pool which I suspect is where they tap the spring to feed into larger pools like this.
There was also this UN-inviting pool with a natural rock floor deep at one end that looked slimy with algae like growth on it. This may have been the original hot spring pools used but not in use now.
The steam is cool and many people would switch between the two. The look on my face is not shock from the temperature difference. The stream if full of small fish that nibble at any dead skin on your feet. I have seen this service on offer in the tourist areas with people putting their feet into tanks. I was having the same here as an added bonus and I am not talking about 2 or 3 small fish. The fish ranged from the small ones that you normally see in the tanks to those about the double the size. The small fish feel like a tickle only but the bigger fish with bigger mouths you can feel a lot more. There is nothing unpleasant about it but it is a surprise the first time something comes up to you in the water and starts nibbling at your feet.
