Baolai and Bulao of Liugui are famous for their quality hot springs and beautiful scenery. The hot springs of Baolai and Bulao originate in the same region, and therefore they have the same kind of odorless, smell-less carbonate spring water that stays at about 60 Celsius degrees all year round. Both Baolai and Bulao boast a variety of hot spring pools for visitors to choose from, such as outdoor SPA, medicinal, aroma-therapy and massage pools, as well as indoor Japanese or Bali-style personal baths. Plum flowers which come into full bloom in the depth of winter always make Baolai and Bulao more mesmerizing. A winter festival entitled “Whispering Flowers in Mountain Town” is held to celebrate such beautiful views, and the two towns’ frequenters always come back at this time of a year to invigorate their hot spring memories. Be sure to try Baolai and Bulao’s plum dishes after taking hot spring baths. Plums’ sweet-sour taste gives a refreshing taste to the food. Beside the Baolai Old Tree Square is the Baolai Visitor Center that provides visitors with travel info and a place to rest. As its name suggests, the square is characterized by precious old trees, in addition to an amazing overlook-view of the Laonong River Valley and nearby mountains and hills. The square is also the winter festival’s main venue. During festival time, the square is always crowded with people.
