Xiamen Riyuegu Hotspring (厦门日月谷温泉)

This is the first time I've ever had such luxurious 5-star hotspring experience. And I love it! Tropical paradise setting. Wonderful services and facilities. Wide range of hotsprings with different ingredient choices. 3 swimming pools. Free flow drinks.
Moreover, it's not too costly, at RMB 118 during weekdays. No time limit.

As far as I can remember, the types of hotsprings available are such as green tea, puer tea, oolong tea, specialty tea (can't recall what's so special), rose, lavender, peppermint, lemon, coffee, aloe vera, curry(this is a weird one.), ginger, ginseng, red wine, white rice wine, dong guai, pineapple, fish spa(additional RMB30) and natural hotspring water. Rose and lavender are among my fav! The aroma's just so relaxing and rejuvenating~

The Puer tea hotspring is pretty special too! It offers a cold then hot sensation. By first dipping into the cold pool then into the hotspring. How it felt? numb! can't feel myself. However, it slowly gets more n more enjoyable. Torturing at first. But rewarding next. =D

There's one culture that caught my attention here. Ladies just walk around in the washroom NAKED. Exposing their breast and their bottoms 0.o omg. I do know about this culture long before. But experiencing it personally in this situation is just.... awkward. Sorry for my 'ulu-ness'. haha!
