Highly recommend especially if you plan on also doing a soakStarted the day at Springs City Resort (under $30, all day hot spring use, multiple pools with different temps - find shuttle stop outside MRT), then went down the hill to see rest of the city. Unfortunately, we should've also went to the Beitou Museum but that was uphill. We also missed the historic Beitou Hot Spring Museum since it was under renovation. But the Thermal Valley is definitely worth seeing (it's hot and steamy just standing near it). They also have some pleasant parks with some hiking trails, the indigenous culture museum and the very pretty library.
Great spotGo and see it, it's not every day you get to see a volcanic river. The area is pretty warm because of the volcano, and it's a very pretty part of Taipei.
Not so Exciting to VisitThe Thermal Valley at Beitou was a long ride and walk to see and we found it too tiring and a waste of our whole afternoon. Better consider going somewhere else than just plan to see this site. We had to transfer to a local light rail when we reached Beitou to get to the hot springs area.
One of the location you'll have to stop byNatural sulphur produce by the mountain, naturally heat occurrence. Would suggest to take a cab up as there is uphill climb to the hot spring hotels around the area. But you can walk back down.
