Where I stayed
There was a group of about 8 people waiting for the bus and we just followed their lead when we got off at the caves. The first part was a boat ride through the cave openning that you literally had to put your head between your legs or you would hit it on the roof of the opening
On our way back through the cave we stopped at the mud baths and mud slide and got good and dirty, even though the mud was freezing cold at first we still had a good time. After the mud bath we walked back to where there were thermal baths terraced into the rocks with hotter baths being at the top and cooler ones being lower down. We sat in these for about thirty minutes trying to clean the remaining mud off ourselves and enjoying the warmth.
After returning out of the cave we had to wait again for our bus to come back; in the mean time a chinese couple that were in our group and had been attempting to speak to us in english (chinglish as the guy called it, lol) bought us an 'ababa' (translation is wrong I'm sure), it is very a popular treat around this time and consists of a rubbery green outside filled with sweet black tar stuff.
Our bike ride back went good, we didn't get lost and managed to get a few shots of more scenery before heading home. We got ourselves showered up (there was alot of mud hiding) then headed to west street to find some food. We settled on trying Chinese KFC because we were tired and wanted something quick, it was actually not bad.
