You can now have your hot pot and bathe in it too at this hot spring in Chongqing, which is designed to look like the popular Chinese dish.
The city is famous for both its hot springs and its variant of Sichuan-style hot pot, and they recently combined the two into a tourist attraction in Shapingba district.
The hot spring is almost 7 meters in diameter and shaped like the traditional four-sided metal pot. The water is colored red by medicinal herbs and comes replete with plastic vegetables and chopsticks to use as props.
Apparently, it smells like it too. “Spicy and numbing,” said one bather in the video below. “It’s very comfortable like a hot pot.”
