    Disappointing

    2018-10

    Unfortunately we visited on a Monday when the springs were closed and the museum is closed for renovations. The museum would have been good - but the hit springs area looked unimpressive. Don’t bother . If you want to a day trip chose maokong gondola

    Don’t bother trying to swim

    If you’re a man you can’t wear loose swim shorts with pockets, only compression style shorts. For ladies you just have to buy it there even if your swimsuit is modest they’ll say the material is wrong. She didn’t want pictures but you can see what kind of swimsuits they sell for 500NTD.

    Took the train out to see the hot springs. Unfortunately the museum was closed for upgrade. When we got to the actual spring there was a lady checking if we had swimsuits. We looked around but really nowhere to get in. The stream around the outside were nice

    Great public hot spring

    2018-04

    Beitou, easy to access via the Taipei MRT, is filled with hotels and spas that have hot spring baths. The city also maintains a public, outdoor, co-ed (clothed) hot spring facility that is well worth a visit if you want a good soak and a chance to participate in a very local activity. The hot springs are open to the public for a mere $NTD 40 (about $1.50 USD) for two hours. They are very particular about what kind of bathing suit is acceptable (mine was not) and they sell them for around $NTD 250-400. The changing rooms are pretty generic, but the baths are great. The hottest ones are about 45 degrees Celsius, with others at 40 and 42. There's also a cool one. The baths are filled mostly with retirees who bring thermoses of tea and water as well as fruit and other snacks. There's a lot of talking and chatting, but also lots of people just sitting there quietly in the mineral-rich, sulphur-smelling water. We also really enjoyed walking around the town, which has a rather seaside-resort feel to it. Only 40 minutes or so from central Taipei to Beitou, it's a great place for a day trip.

    Best place to relax with family and friends.

    It was amazing to see the history and old architecture in this area. Go to a hot spring place to relax and release all your stress.
