    A brief look around the area of Beitou Hot springs on Wednesday 03/04/19, the weather wasn't very special being a drizzling rainy day & when we reached the hot spring pool enclosure we decided not to go in being over crowded inside. Not a place that's really spectacular in wanting a second visit.

    Nice quaint town just outside Taipei. Many spa places to enjoy the hot spring. Can be hilly at places. Was busy with tourists. I suggest to book into one of the private rooms to enjoy peaceful soak.

    Magnificent and interesting area but beware the Public Baths.

    We are a 70+ couple from Australia and caught the train to Beitou Thermal Valley. It is very well signposted and the area is compact and you can walk around easily without having to do a tour. The museum is interesting and free. The whole park is beautiful and the Hot Sulphur Spring is great to see. Lovely food on the roadside too, including eggs that have been boiled in the Hot Springs! The only negative was the Public Baths. We bought the tickets for $2 Aust. But we’re made to show the staff our swimsuits before entering. I thought it was probably something to do with modesty but they insisted that my husbands bathing shorts were not suitable. He had to buy a pair of Lycra bicycle type shorts in order to participate. They were not cheap and for a one off use, we decided not to join in. The baths are really small and a lot of people bathe, so not entirely sure how hygienic it all is. We still enjoyed our day but certainly the baths could be upgraded and a bit of common sense used regarding the swimwear. Or advertise what is expected of tourists.

    Awesome place

    A 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.

    Beitou 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.
