Everyone can get involved, whether you run a hot springs business or just love bathing

June 22 2019 represented the second annual celebration of World Bathing Day, a global event shining a spotlight on the vital importance of humanity’s relationship with water for health, community and cultural purposes. We had participants engaging from all over the world, including: New Zealand, Australia, the Phillipines, Thailand, Vietnam, Japan, Russia, India, Czech Republic, Finland, Sweden, Iceland, United Kingdom, Iran, South Africa and the United States of America.

In 2020, our primary focus will again be calling for individuals, businesses and organisations to post sunrise bathing images on Instagram.
