Antique is known for its kawa bath. The huge kawa or cooking pan was previously used in sugar mills prevalent in the town. Today, old kawa serves as outdoor bathtubs where you’ll soak yourself in hot water for some therapeutic dip. You can choose from salt, milk, wine, coffee, or beer bath. Not only is the hot water relaxing but the surrounding nature as well.
