Dauin Baslay Hot Springs
Mayor Rodrigo Alanano of Dauin, Negros Oriental said the twin spring in Barangay Baslay in the municipality is being developed to become a tourism destination in the province.
Alanano said they plan to construct an exclusive pool for senior citizens and for with persons with physical disabilities.
Gov.Emilio Macias II allocated some P5 million for the sheds and comfort rooms near the area, which has a boiling sulfuric spring and a natural cold water spring.
The spring is located downhill and has an estimated 300 steps, making it difficult for senior citizens who cannot sustain prolonged walking, Macias said.
Alanano said the pool will be constructed near the main road. The sulfuric hot water from the spring will be extracted through a water pump from the source to the pool.
The sulfuric hot spring is believed to have healing effects especially for skin diseases. The tourist site is fully accessible to all types of vehicle after the construction of the Barangay Bunga-Baslay road was completed.(PNA)

Therapeutic swimming pool eyed in Baslay hotspring
DAUIN, Negros Oriental — The Municipal Government has started the project to build a therapeutic swimming pool near the natural hot spring in the upland barangay of Baslay to attract more tourists.
Mayor Rodrigo Alanano said Representative Emilio Macias II (2nd District, Negros Oriental) has already released P100,000 that was used to repair the road leading to the hot spring and has pledged another P100,000 to fully develop the site.
He said the Municipal Government has set aside P150,000 for the project which he said has been drawing up an average of 100 local and foreign tourists monthly because of the water’s sulfuric contents and the spring’s healing property.
As part of the plan, cottages would be constructed around the hot spring and concrete steps would be built as pathway leading to the pool.
