    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.

    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.

    Nice place for relaxing visit

    2018-04

    It is a nice place to spend around 2 relaxing hours in hot baths. The hottest one is around 45 degrees. The place can be a bit cleaner, and sometimes behaviour of some guests is a bit annoying. Also lockers are unacceptably expensive. But once again, the place is nice.

    Great natural hot spring

    2018-04

    This is a place easy to get to with natural hot spring. And around the area has lots of great street food and decent hotels offering.

    Return to the olden days

    2018-04

    Beitou is a hot springs area. It has been a popular spa destination for its hot springs since the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945). I am not all that keen on hot springs, but it's worth a try. Some of the spas are a bit down at heel. Getting to Beitou is a lot easier than it once was now that the MRT stops nearby. By the way, it's a case of 'when in Rome, do what the Romans do.'
