It's a small hot spring located inside an apartment complex (how unique!). In the olden days, this place was very popular, especially in the 1970s and 1980s (ask your parents, they know). However, it is pretty much unknown now, after being swallowed by a newly built apartment complex (but people can still enter to enjoy the hot spring-lah).

P.s: The suburb "Ayer Panas" was even named after it!

Admission: RM2
⏰ Opening Hours: 7am-7pm daily
📍 Address: 81, Jalan Air Panas, Taman Ayer Panas, 53200 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur

The admission fee is very cheap, only RM1, and the parking fee is RM0.50 per entry. Surrounded by dense foliage, there are many shaded areas where people can sit. However, we have to warn you that the center part of the pond is very hot, but overall the heat is nice. The set-up here is pretty basic, and we recommend bringing your own pail for whatever water activities you want to perform.

Admission: RM1, RM0.50 (parking)
⏰ Opening Hours: 24 hours daily (night can be pretty dark)
📍 Address: Kampung Sungai Serai, 43100 Hulu Langat, Selangor

Also known as Kolam air panas Dusun Tua, this hot spring is located within the compound of a small 🕌surau in Hulu Langat. Do note that the areas for 👨men and 👩women are separated, which means that you won't be able to spend time with your spouse or elderly parent of the opposite gender. There are private stalls for you to bathe using the water from the hot spring, but you will have to carry it into the stall using a bucket (pre-prepared for you). Do donate if you can, as all funds will be used for the maintenance of this place.

Pro-Tip: Early morning is the peak hour, so coming after 10am would be good.

Admission: Free
⏰ Opening Hours: 7am-7pm daily
📍 Address: Kampung Dusun Tua, 43100 Hulu Langat, Selangor
