Natural hot springs are a common occurrence in Peninsular Malaysia. This phenomenon occurs when water that seeps into the Earth is heated by magma; molten rock located beneath the surface of the Earth. The Earth’s pressure then causes the water to again rise above the surface, forming a natural hot spring.
Some of the hot springs sites in Malaysia have become tourist destinations with fringe attractions and facilities such as souvenir shops, hotels and restaurants to accommodate visitors fascinated by this natural wonder. The restaurants on site are equipped with changing rooms for traveling visitors.
