Hot springs to attract tourists

The Ministry of Tourism is preparing to develop a hot spring area in Kampong Speu province to attract more local and international tourists.

Te Teuk Pus Hot Spring is located in front of a mountain in Phnom Te village in Oral district, about 60 kilometers west of Kampong Speu town.

Tourism Minister Thong Khon ordered development of the area into a special attraction for the country and for the province.
He said tourism and provincial environment officials should work together to establish the hot spring area.

“The hot spring area is a rare tourist attraction and has features that can attract international tourists from neighboring countries to visit the area,” he said.
“After an inspection and study, an expert group from Japan found the hot spring of good quality for the treatment of various diseases and for skin care and beauty.”

The challenge is road and infrastructure linking Oral district to the area, which is difficult to get to, the ministry said.

Ho Vandy, the secretary-general of the Cambodia National Tourism Alliance, welcomed the hot spring idea, saying that if the ministry is taking serious action by cooperating with the private sector for its development, it will be good for the area.

Great idea. A hot spring in a really hot place in the blazing sun. How refreshing!

Several years ago, I visited the hot springs near Fang in northern Thailand. The novelty seemed to be to buy some quail eggs, boil them in the spring then hang out and eat the eggs. There was even a geyser that erupted every few minutes.

Rotorua was better though.

We rode motorbikes up to those hot springs about six years ago. The road goes through the new sugar planations where all the land was stolen, financed by the ANZ bank. As the road climbed into the hills there were more and more carts bringing out scrappy timber to feed the charcoal kilns that were everywhere.
The hot springs were contained in a big ugly concrete tank and the water was far too hot to bathe in. There was a concrete channel taking water away to some buildings in the trees about a kilometer away. This was a huge resort with a massive entry statement and dozens of timber chalets all with a tiled pool outside where the hot water was supposed to run. The place was abandoned and the termites were about halfway through eating everything.
It was a beautiful setting amongst the trees but a complete folly. The road was a muddy mess in those days but the plantation had neat barbed wire fencing. It all looked like North Queensland.
