    There are many attractions such as Hot Springs Museum, Taipei library annex, plum Valley, Northern Beitou Park area is ideal for walks and. I think you going to miss the Japan food Japan atmosphere where many remained as station there a familiar chain stores in Japan, such as Yoshinoya and Otoya, travel towards the end. Also, visit Beitou-projection between the new North is a little tourist train so I recommend the MRT.

    Used to be a 5 star, now a 4 star. This place is too crowded. Except to be welcomed by the regulars who will tell you the rules over and over again. Still it remains an easy place for locals to soak , and an interesting experience for tourists.

    It was an interesting experience, fairly cheap but be warned they are super particular on what you can wear. We all ended up buying $12.00 trunks, basically if your attire isn't like spandex/Speedo material they won't let you in. I didn't care, as they ended up a souvenir for myself. Lockers provided were like $0.50, not at all a big deal. Shower before you enter, the water is cold but you can take a hot shower for like $0.20 if you care. If you have long hair, put it up on top of your head in an elastic. There were six pools, ranging from very cold to extremely hot. Take your time and gradually go up, wash your feet using the before you enter each pool using the pots provided. To cool off, gradually go back down or sit on a bench for a few minutes. It was a very relaxing experience, it helped a tonne after all the walking we did. If you go there I recommend visiting. Not sure what the negative comments about urination and defecation in the pools was about, definitely not our experience.

    Eh... Go on a weekday, you'll encounter old crabby people after 4pm. Line up outside to get in. Everyone must wear skin tight bathing suits... No idea why... Bring your own towel. hot water shower, blow dryer, bathing suit water extractor is all coin operated. If you have the extra money, go to a hotel to do the hot water bath.

    Quite interest experience. Very cheap, clean and various temperature of hot spring water (30 to 46°) and also cold water. This place is very local. There may be a lot of people better not going in the weekend.

    Hell on earth. This is the worst review I've written on here. Called them and they said that I should come with my own swim shorts. I go there, pay for entry, get in and put my things in the locker. Then someone comes and says I can't use my swim shorts and that I have to buy one of their ridiculous looking ones for $15. I try to explain that I'm already wearing swim shorts and they say that it's not the kind they wear in Taiwan. Fair enough. I ask for a refund. They say no refunds. I was about to actually buy the swim shorts since it took me almost an hour to get here, UNTIL... I notice that the place is full of old men pissing in the hot springs. The place smells of urine, is supremely overcrowded, and... well... don't waste your time here and go elsewhere. I left the place completely disappointed. And I'm generally super optimistic and cheery. Enjoy the piss water if that's your thing, but not much else here. I would post a picture, but they allowed no photography. Maybe people don't want to be seen pissing in the water. Someone told me that some people poop in the water, also. I'll take it all as a sign that it just wasn't meant to be. Thank God I didn't step foot in there. Onwards!
