Beitou Hot Spring Museum, Taipei
(3.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
The largest bathhouse in this part of the world at the time it was built, Beitou Hot Spring Museum invites you to start exploring the rich history and culture of Beitou’s hot springs. A Japanese magistrate built the Victorian-style building with a Japanese interior in 1913. The red brick first floor houses the original public baths, where a large central pool, elegantly decorated with stained glass windows, was reserved for male customers only. In a niche in front of its entrance, see a giant piece of "hokutolite" or Beitou stone--a precious mineral with healing properties. The wooden second floor features a tatami lobby and several exhibition areas, including a multimedia auditorium where you can watch an educational video about the museum. The view from the balcony explains why in the 1970s, Beitou was known as the Taiwanese Hollywood.
