Whether it’s a hammam, an onsen, a sauna or a banya there are several good reasons why women (and men) travelling should give it a go:
1. Hammams and other bathing rituals like saunas are an excellent way to beat jetlag.
2. So good for the skin….. and the perfect way to a detox.
3. It is said that a good hammam burns up 300 calories per visit so contributing to weight loss.
4. It can be a way to make contact with other women who may be reluctant to mix with foreigners.
5. The perfect place to pick up beauty tips from the locals.
