Services & Facilities
Average place!We went there by MRT from Taipei - easy for English speaking tourists. First we visited the small HOT SPRING MUSEUM (to enter, take off your shoes and they give you disinfected slippers) and then the PLUM GARDEN. Then we went to see the THERMAL VALLEY and from there we went up to the little PUJI TEMPLE. Then we went back and entered the beautiful PUBLIC LIBRARY (all wood, ecofriendly). Interesting but nothing special!
Thermal valley - nice to seeNothing very extraordinary here but if you have time, it's nice to see and to get out of the city. At the end of the MRT, just follow the sign to the "thermal valley". You'll end up at a nice thermal natural pond with light sulfur vapors. Not really crowded. On the way to the "valley" you will enjoy the hot water river and the public pools. Entrance to the "valley" is free.
So-so , mostly indoor okMost of hot springs here are indoor. Outdoor is not very nice and mostly for elder local people. If u will find nice indoor hot springs - they might be pricy during weekend. Better check and book before. Busy during weekend.

Just a day tripHad a day trip to this area and enjoyed the walk around. We found 1 public hot spring that is free and open to all as well as the ones that you need to pay to go in. You need to have proper attire to enjoy the hot spring.
Relaxing PlaceBeitou and XinBeitou are two of my favorite places go visit everytime my family visits Taiwan because of the serenity and the good climate specially during the night. Here you can find bath houses or spas in many hotels, although you have to look for newer hotels in order for you to make sure that the facility is still clean. The hotels check in time though is too late and the check out time is too early maybe because of the high demand.
