Awesome placeA must visit place when in Taipei. It tells you the past history of Japanese colonization and the entertainment scenario at that time. I didn't really feel uncomfortable with the sulfur gas. Most of the tourists were moving around casually. Must try one of the public baths. reaching the hot springs is pretty easy with the red line and then the link line comfortably dropping you close to the hot springs. You could do this in half a day.
Relax to the maxBeitou gained fame in the Japanese colonial period (1895-1945) as a spa area. It's still very popular. Take your pick of the hot springs, they have varying properties. Some are better than others.

Delightfully healthyWonderful views of the hot spring with sulphuric elements very inviting invigorating and interesting Really feel refreshed and revived after!
Dirty run down rip offEntry is cheap $40NT. But as previously mentioned you need this specific bathing suit that any traveler is almost certain not to have so you cannot rent it no you have to pay $250NT for this stupid looking for pair of shorts you will never use again. Not to mention the lady at the gate is totally in on this scam she had a really nasty/cheap attitude... Actually the only person i met in taiwan that wasn't genuine, it was really dissapointing to see that. And there is a time limit! After 45min in here i got kicked out. My advice is don't bother its very run down and dirty save you hot spring adventure for somewhere more genuine and remote.
Very local, amazing venue worth visiting!The hot springs and the thermal valley are so easily accessible by transit from Taipei and the Beitou area is absolutely stunning. It is easy to spend hours here exploring! Make sure that you bring the proper swimwear to the hot springs since they are very particular about what you are allowed to wear in and will make you buy another suit otherwise. Once in, it is surprising and refreshing how few tourists are present. Very worth the visit!
