Why Binh Chau Hot Springs is special ?
Binh Chau Hot Springs is an area of roughly 35 hectares and home to the Binh Chau Hot Springs Resort. The hot springs are about 60 kilometers away from Vung Tau and 134 kilometers away from Ho Chi Minh City, which makes for a three hour drive. Until about just over a decade ago there was wildlife in the area, but it seems humans have driven the animals out. In 1994 six elephants were captured near the springs, but after a few months of keeping them as pets their captors turned them over to the zoo in HCMC. Nowadays the only wildlife you are likely to spot are ceramic lions, cheetahs and panthers, which decorate the marshes around the springs.
What to explore at Binh Chau Hot Springs?
Chief among the attractions on this 35-hectare site is an outdoor hot-spring-fed swimming pool, although visitors wanting the full experience might opt for a soak in a mudbath. The pool temperature is around 37°C, and the minerals in the water are said to be beneficial to bones, muscles and skin, and are able to improve blood circulation and mental disorders. There’s also a spa, with massages available. On-site are a golf practice range, tennis court, restaurant and playground.

Tips for you
Binh Chau Hot Springs is a fun day out and could be worth spending a night at one of the many hotels on site. I went in the Peace Hotel for a look - it is aptly named! We paid for the mud bath - and then we were given a bag of mud each, with some oil and shampoo and a comb, actually the amount of mud given is enough for two people but they wont let you share, so for two people it cost 800,000 VND. But it is worth it Mix the oil with the mud and cover your body (they give you a towel too) then stand in the sun to let it dry on. take some cool photos, and get in the 37C bath tub- they have big ones for groups as well as individual ones, make sure you get the one you want, they tried to put us in 2 individual tubs in a room for 4 rather than a big tub, but it was easy enough to move. your skin feels good afterwards! The area is pretty big and we walked around to see the crocodiles, many trees, and garden, and the area where you can boil an egg in the springs, we did this too, 12000 VND per egg, it takes 15 minutes but they taste great and they give you salt and pepper to add to it! There are signs in Vietnamese, Russian and English. I would go again!
