Springs and Raksa Warin Arboretum
Located about 2 kilometers east of the provincial office, the hot
springs have been a popular tourist spot ever since King Rama V visited
Ranong in 1890, and named the road to the hot springs 'Chon Ra-u',
meaning 'hot water'. There are three natural spring pools. The temperature
of the water in the pools remains constant at about 65 °C. The water
is both potable and suitable for bathing. Doctors routinely prescribe
bathing in the pools for both medical treatments and as a relaxing
way to ease stress and tension. Surrounding the hot springs is a deep
shaded forest called 'Raksa Warin', where resting pavilions and wash
rooms have been provided for the visitor's comfort. Nearby Wat Tapo
Tharam also provides bathing rooms for visitors who want to enjoy
the healthy mineral water from the thermal springs.
Khao Ya (Grass Hill) or Khao Hua Lan (Bald Hill) or Khao Phi (Ghost
Known to local residents by a variety of names and endearingly referred
to as Thailand's version of a Swiss pasture, this hill, located in
Tambon Ngao on Highway 4 (Ranong-Phang-nga) about twelve kilometers
from downtown Ranong, is something of an anomaly as it is completely
treeless, being covered instead by a thick blanket of grass. Numerous
walking trails and good vantage points offering unbroken views of
the countryside make this hill the most popular in Ranong.
