Hot Spring in Kuala Lumpur, Kolam Air Panas Sg. Serai – Dusun Tua, MALAYSIA

Not much people know about this place apparently. One of the few near Kuala Lumpur area’s hot springs. Located in Dusun Tua, Hulu Langat, Selangor (Cheras) this place is usually patronized by the locals. Like the Japanese “onsen” (hot spring), most hot springs are rumoured to have healing capabilities.

Kolam Air Panas Sg.Serai is believed to have such healing capabilities. The area is small, with a few designated car parks. There are no entrance fees or charges to visit the hot spring, it’s a public place. There’s no toilet or changing room either.

The hot spring is usually crowded at evening times.

The weather is much cooling during evening. The water is warm and not extremely hot.

Don’t go to the area with bubbles, those are the source of the hot spring. Those areas will be very hot, be careful. Since it’s a public area, please do not dirty the area when you go there. Be ethical, don’t simply throw rubbish anywhere, no one is manning the area. Let us enjoy what nature has provided, don’t destroy it. I hope you have a great time there.

I was enjoying my time at the hot spring, the water of the hot spring was warm and soothing.

How to get to Kolam Air Panas Sg. Serai (Hot Spring)

From Kuala Lumpur, use the Cheras main road towards Sg. Long / Kajang highway (Grand Saga Highway). After paying the first toll, keep left turn to Cheras Batu 9. Drive further you will pass by a police station and immediately turn left at the traffic light (2nd traffic light from the highway). Drive a few kilometers ahead after u will see (G-Mart supermarket on your right), the hot spring will be a few hundred meters on the right. There are a few parking there. Enjoy.

    It is family friendly but sometimes it could be a bit crowded. The Hulu Langat beer garden is nearby that area, another 15-20 min drive?

    Kuala Lumpur or even the whole Klang Valley is notoriously famous for its mud and soft brown soil. If you look carefully at my picture, you can almost see my whole feet. Because the soil is brown, the water will reflect it in a way. The water was clean when I was there at that time.
