The springs are about a 3hr drive from where we are and a lot of it this time was on brand new roads that were not there last year.
I went for a walk outside the resort to see what was about, to the left, there was only a cement factory! and to the right just a few buildings that were either cafe's or just shacks, there were a couple of 'proper' houses set back off the road but this is a very rural area with rice fields all around. One houseowner was reasonably well off as they had the latest Audi in the driveway.
While walking I was stopped by an old lady on a motorbike who had chickens on the back and other stuff tied on precariously, one item was large, live, turtle in a bucket slung over the handlbars which she did her best to try to sell to me, needless to say I didn't buy it, mind you if the sea had been nearer i would have and just put it back again. We were only there a couple of days and it was quite pleasant as they always are, some photos to be added soon.
