About 45km fromTuy Hoa city is La Hai townlet (Dong Xuan district), one can turn right, then go straight for around 15km to come to Tra O hot spring, in Xuan Long commune.
Crossing the romantic river Ha Nhao with curved fresh-blue-stream, 200m away from the road, visitors will realize Tra O hot spring located at the foot of a desolated hill. Unlike a natural stream, Tra O hot-mineral water has a temperature of about 700C, flowing from two dragon-heads built on an area of about 3m2. This system is designed as a shrine of the mountain-god. On the roof and the small lake under are the architecture of two dragons with sacred and mysterious features, behind is a space with a size large enough for a person to enter deep inside to have a sauna, the way people here do to have a better health, or cure a number of rheumatic diseases, skin diseases … According to many local people, the hoses in the hot spring were built in the French invasion time when cultural traces hadn’t been discovered yet. When the road is improved, trees are planted, the hot spring is sundered into hot-water pools…, it will attract many tourists to visit and enjoy euphoria feeling as having a bath in the fresh-hot water.
