Lubuk Timah Hot Spring (Pusat Rekreasi Lubuk Timah) is located just 15 km from Ipoh City and it is a hidden gem and its waters were once used for tin mining in the early 20th century. This area is suitable for taking fresh air, relaxing and for a picnic during weekends. The hot spring can be reached by using Simpang Pulai-Cameron Highland Road near the PLUS expressway Simpang Pulai Exit.

The reservoir may have long silted up, but water still flows over the dam on both sides, forming two waterfalls further in after two serene pools of natural hot springs. The open hot spring pool located just by the river is clean and well-maintained. There are 3 pools which has different degrees of heat. You have to be cautious if you want to put your foot in the hottest pool as it is very hot. There are also waterfall if you want to cool your body after the hot bath.

Since under new management by Pusat Rekreasi Lubuk Timah Sdn Bhd (PRELUT) in August 2013, all facilities such as multi-purpose hall, prayer hall and bathroom are upgraded for visitors.
