Looking for an exciting place for the whole family? Then check out Inspa World, a five-story 60,000-square-foot funhouse is an elaborate local copy of a jimjilbang, a traditional Korean 24-hour bathhouse where folks soak, steam, and eat together, and sometimes even sleepover. The lady’s bath has herbal steamers, supposedly very soothing after giving birth. Half the floor is a food court and the other half is a kitsch paradise: a green stone meadow coursed by a running stream and dotted with igloo-shaped saunas. The saunas are stunning. The gold one has tiles coated with 96 percent pure gold.
To cool off, one enters the “Iceland” room, which is lined with frosted pipes. We had a mini-snowball fight. You can get a sea-salt pedicure or an organic peel, feel kneaded by a massage chair, or sack out in the designated sleeping area. Call it an aquarium for humans. You end up feeling like someone’s well-fed goldfish, darting around in the bubbles, wondering what is behind the next gilded rock.
