  • In a quiet place in the new Beitou warm Spring District, there are many well-known attractions nearby that can make people relax, the green onion of the forest, the silk of the stream, the step-by-step planning and design

  • We went aboard the MRT from Taipei main station. Because it was so crowded that there is a public bath, but used the bath hotel. Bring a towel, be careful no rental towels is to prepare the men Board Shorts NG, so pick a type of swimsuit.

  • Nice outside hot springs. You need to wear a rubber swimsuit. They will check the material of the swimsuit while entering the areal. Entry fee is $20NT for students. There are 4 pools with warm / hot water available and 2 others with cold water. The cold showers are for free and the warm ones need to be paid. Sometimes it's a little bit crowded. Try to avoid going here in the evening. The pools are cleaned every two hours. You might bring your own drinks.
  • Yep VERY VERY STRICT bathing costume regulations. Is that because there is a shop selling bathing / swim wear right by the entrance ? Or is it a chicken or egg thing? The best thing is to show your swimwear before you enter. They are nice enough if done upfront. Swimwear is cheap, from 250NTD to 350+ I wonder is this a public facility by the Taipei city govt or privately owned ? Fun place, very local.
  • One of my favorite places in Taipei and a hot spring you must visit. It has hot spring pools built on 3 different levels with varying temperatures and the architecture is really cool. It's a public hot spring, so you must bring a swimsuit and everybody bathes in same pools. Lot of local people visit here and I really prefer the atmosphere of this place to the private hot spring hotels.
  • Nice and cheap hot spring. Pretty crowded, and if you want to use anything like hot showers or a hairdryer it's extra. Also a lot of rules about "acceptable" swimwear for men. Give it a shot on a colder day, you'll love it! Also be sure to bring some extra coins for the locker.
  • Visiting the Millennium Hot Springs is a must do to get a proper Taiwanese hot spring experience! This is what Beitou is all about. It has a 100 year history as a hot spring tourist destination, and to visit Beitou without taking a dip is to miss the most essential thing to do here. You have an option between public and private hot springs, but you really want to visit a public one to get the true experience. Prices are NT$20 for concession and NT$40 for adults. You need to have the correct swimwear (no board shorts!), have a shower before entering the pools and wash your feet with the provided buckets each time. To get maximum enjoyment, alternate between the hot and cold pools, before working your way up to the hottest spa (highest one). If you can spend longer than 2 minutes in there, you've done better than most tourists. * Note that the place does get very busy during peak hours and on weekends.
