Residents of Sanya, Hainan province were recently photographed shamelessly freshening up in the waters of Jiji Hot Spring, a local heritage site.
The hot spring, around 500 years old, is left unmanned, and has more or less become an open-air bathing spot for people living nearby.
Jiji’s is one of the oldest hot springs in the island province. It was reconstructed in the Ming era, and was formerly one of the top eight scenic spots in Hainan.
”The water temperature is great,” a local resident told reporters. “The water has healing effects for numerous illnesses, and that’s why we like to take baths here and use the water for our daily needs.”
Eh, we suppose it’s better than taking a bath in a public fountain. (And at least they’re not washing their blow-up dolls there.)
