Essential Tips for the Best Yoko Onsen Experience

Here are some tips that you should stick to for the best mineral bathing experience at Onsen Quang Ninh.

  • Before getting on the onsen bath, you will need to wash your hair and take a shower. All shower rooms have stools, gel, shampoo, and conditioner.
  • It is essential to use the restroom before entering the onsen bath. Also, if traveling with your children, ensure that your little one uses this restroom before getting on the onsen. That way, your experience will not be interrupted.
  • Remember that the onsen water can be scalding, so being prudent when entering is necessary. 
  • Let's start by using the warm water in the separate tank to rinse your chest and abdomen. It makes a lot of sense medically.
  • Soak and relax in the hot waters to gain healing properties from them.
  • If you want to take advantage of the sauna after onsen, you must wipe down your body first. 
  • We recommend trying various cold and hot saunas to gain the entire experience. Generally, take a hot sauna before going to the cold one.
  • Don't bring a towel into the water. Instead, you can put it on the side of the bath and ensure it cannot touch the bath water.
  • Ensure your hair does not touch the water for hygienic reasons while bathing.
  • You should not allow water to rise above your shoulder level. Otherwise, it will pressure your heart and lungs, putting you in danger.
  • If you have cardiovascular disease or high blood pressure, you should be careful during using onsen.
  • The length of time you soak in the bath will depend on the temperature of the water. If the water temperature is around 43°C to 45°C, the recommended time is 5 to 10 minutes at a time. If the temperature is below 40°C, 20 to 30 minutes is ideal.

Yoko Onsen is promised to make Quang Ninh a leading wellness resort destination in the region and the world. It also contributes to eliminating seasonal tourism weaknesses that have hindered local development for many years.
