Cultures around the world have been practicing bath rituals for thousand of years. A nice bath is often associated with relaxation after a long day or week.
Here are some specialty bath houses around the world:
In Japan, the Onsen is very popular with the locals and tourists alike. It is a natural hot water spring bath that is geothermally heated below the ground. The water rises to the surface hot and bubbling. In order to qualify a bath house as an onsen, the water must contain 19 designated chemical elements. In addition, it must also be at least 25 degree Celsius.
The Turkish Bath, or better known as Hammam is a public bath house for purification usually before prayer. Bathers usually starts off in a heated room much like today's day sauna and then they will wash in cold water. A massage performed by a masseur is very common in a hammam.
