  • I loved to visit the Beitou. Along the river you already feel in warm place, until you reach a large pond nice and warm. You can take a bath in the thermal homes, but the square has a thermal water extremely competitive by locals. They are of Bermuda with the legs in this thermal water immersed. When leaving, the legs are well red. Interesting city.

  • Had to spend a weekend in Taipei and took the chance to visit the very accessible Beitou hotspring town. After a short walk from XinBeitou st, one can reach the thermal valley with misty sulphur pool ...  more »

  • Very good public hot springs very cheap only cost 40 ntd. 3 hot bath, hot one around 45 degree and other little less because hot water from top one go to second and then the last. 2 "cold" bath, not really cold probably arround 20 something line that. Don't forget take enought drink : ) They open by "sessions" here different opent time : 5H30 - 7H30 / 08H00 - 10H00 / 10H30 - 13H00 13H30 - 16H00 / 16H30 - 1900 / 19H30 - 22H00
  • Bring your Speedo or Banana Hammock - if you are a white guy or other foreign man, will not let in with any bathing suit with pockets (Taiwanese or Chinese ok). Rude staff, unclean, awful experience. Left after 15 min, takes awhile to get to Beitou as well. Better to try other hotsprings than this in Taiwan.
  • It's a public bath enjoyed by both locals and visitors, domestic and abroad. I'm a regular goer in the winter & early spring time. There are always many bathers, especially on Mondays, Fridays, and the days that cold front arrives Taipei. It's usually not as many in the sessions before and after noon time. One can enjoys the hot spring with very modest price here, and it's just 550m to the metro station. Bathers are required to put on bathing/swimming suits or swimming trunks, it's not FKK.
  • The hot spring itself is good, but there were just too much extra costs for someone like me, who brought only small portion of budget, for buying a swimsuit and taking a shower inside. Because of that, I couldn't go to another hot spring. Don't get me wrong, I only took photos of toilet and entrance where I was allowed to take.
  • If you are in Taipei this is a must visit. Be aware of the different time slots though. Locals are super friendly and usually aren't that shy to strike a conversation with you. Hot, cold, hot, cold 😀
