Beitou is a thermal area and hot springs abound. It's a popular resort area. During the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945) Beitou was famous throughout the Japanese empire as a spa resort. . These days, there are many onsen -- Japanese-style hot springs -- in Beitou. If you go to an onsen, you will be expected to remove all your clothing before you enter the thermal springs, There are many guest houses and hotels, in various price ranges.

My family and I enjoyed Beitou public hot spring. It is very cheap to get in and they allow children as young as one in. I am currently pregnant, so they did not advise me to go in. I was able to go with my family, but did not get the full experience. The place hosts 5 different pools with different temperatures. You can buy a suit, swim cap and towels there if someone forgets their swim stuff. It is relaxing and I think better without small children. If you’re up for it you can kill two birds with one stone and walk through the thermal park. It’s pretty amazing.

Beitou is well known for its hot springs. You can have an enjoyable day out, either in public or private springs. Some springs allow visitors to wear swim suits, some don't . Japanese-style spas, known as onsen, don't usually allow the wearing of swimsuits. Some people say, however, that the onsen are more in keeping with traditional Beitou experince.Beitou dates from the Japanese colonial era. (1895-1945)

Beitou became a notorious hot-springs resort during the Japanese occupation of Taiwan (1895-1945). Many Japanese-style onsen (hot water baths) remain. There are public and private baths; prices vary. In the Pacific War era, Japanese soldiers would come here to relax before going into battle, including kamikazi pilots. Beitou is an area with prolific natural volcanic activity.

Beitou has many hot springs, the most famous are the famous Japanese-style onsen resorts. They derive from the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945), when onsens were common in Beitou. Beitou was notorious throughout the Japanese Empire for its spa resorts. It is not common to wear bathing suits in onsens.

There are a variety of hot springs in Beitou. Some are public, which are inexpensive and some are private, which charge a fee. Some allow bathing suits. The Japanese style onsen do not normally allow bathing suits. Many of the onsen-style hot springs date from the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945) when Beitou was a notorious hot-springs resort.

Many hotels around Beitou have hot springs for those who don't mind paying for private baths. However, it is quite cheap to pay to use the public hot spring baths too if you don't mind sharing the space. You need to have the right bathing suits.

If you have time to splurge on a private experience, go for it. But if not, the public hot spring only costs 40NT, but you need to have the right kind of swim wear. Beach shorts that are common in the US as swim trunks are not allowed. They only allow tight swim wear. If you don't have one, you can buy one there. Given it is very cheap to have a natural hot spring experience, the shower and other facilities are very basic. If you are looking for a more luxurious experience, you will need to pay for one of the private hotels or hotspring resorts.

Nice way to get way from "city" life and go into nature to relax. Getting here is quite easy and worth the trip.
