    Interesting read!! I’m a very scientific person, so I don’t believe in alternate medicine or therapies – which I believe what hot springs are used for.- But I think it may be quite a lot of fun to visit for touristic activities. 🙂

  2. Thank you for the great recommendations! I think I just may book a hot spring getaway for myself and my mum for mother’s day. She will love it. 🙂

    Very legendary and unique hot spring spots! I must admit that I haven’t heard of them. Thanks for introducing these spots to me. LOL

    And oh, perfect photos! Truly fantastic!

    I agree! The hardest part is trying to find “enough” time to experience these wonders. This is a wonderful list! And great photos too…

    I’m loaded with workload and I can honestly admit that I’m finding a hard time thinking when and where will I have a “break.” Great list! But you gave me a problem… I’m having a hard time deciding which one to experience first. Hmmm…

    • Same here! I’m having a hard time taking a break off from work and with this wonderful list, I’m having difficulty deciding. But I guess, I’m starting off with Breitenbush, though I’m not really interested in hiking…

  6. Okay, I’ll be proud to say that I’ve been to Breitenbush and the experience was fantastic! I don’t love hiking that much but I was tempted (or should I rather say forced) by friends to do it! Glad I did!

  7. I particularly love the photos of Conondrum Hot Springs! Very inviting! That regenerative pool surrounded by a 14,000-foot high peaks is definitely worth a try! Planning a trip to this hot spring now… Thanks for sharing the first hand account article! Very helpful!

  8. Truth or Consequences… That actually made me laugh. I wonder how do you manage to find all these unique destinations. But really, you described the places very well that I’m eager to try and experience them…

    • Francis Woods

      Same here!!! First time to hear the place as well!!! Urbanette never fails to give something new!!!

  9. Really?! Whales breaching at Tofino?! I think that would be a perfect experience!

    • Henry Williams

      You’ll definitely love the experience 😉

    Great list! Now I’m left thinking which destination should I check out first?! Urgh.. limited time (and budget)…
