Baan Tha Chang Spring is located in Khao Yai, in the district of Pak Chong Nakhon Ratchasima Province in Thailand. It is very close to the road, and that makes it perfect for a stop over while traveling in Thailand.

Cold Spring with Clear Water

The Baan Tha Chang Spring is not a hot spring, but a spring with clear water coming out in a number of small ponds with rocky bottoms. While visiting the area, we noticed no one swims over to the edge of the small waterfall. Most people swim in the first pools. 

The water at Baan Tha Chang Spring is cold even during the hot season, and there are trees around the spring, cooling the ponds and pools. If you visit during the Thailand cold season around December to February, the water will be quite cold. In the afternoon, the water tends to be a bit warmer but there is a constant flow of fresh water coming from the spring cooling it down. 

You can get snacks and normal Thai food at the parking lot. There are many people who set up shop during the day to sell to those who come to visit the Baan Tha Chang Spring in Thailand.
