Easy to get to on the Metro with gentle stroll up to the museum and then the springs. Lots of different things to see. Got lovely ice lollies from the shop up near the springs.

Was a bit hard to find. Language barrier. Finally found but is ok. The free dip pool needs swimming costumes and appeared ok. We passed didn't bother.

The public hot springs are located in and around a park in the town of Xinbeitou. It takes maybe 20 minutes to get there from the Taipei main station. You get on the red line and then transfer to the Xinbeitou line for the last 5 minutes. The park is outside the station and the public hot springs are a 8 to 10 minute walk. Bring your own towel, soap and shampoo. I had to buy a swimsuit ($10) at the more conservative Millennium Hot Springs (see photo). The Longnice Hot Spring pool ( see photo) is a block away and no swimsuit is needed. We opted for the four hour soak at the Grand View resort, which is about a 15 minute walk up the hill from the park. Men and women have separate areas, it is pricey, but worth it.

In days gone by, Beitou's hot springs were known throughout the Japanese Empire for their restorative properties.. When the end of the Japanese colonial era (1895-1945) came eventually, many people still attended the baths, which are not only hot, but are also said to be health-giving. The volcanic springs are both public and private. People entering the traditional Japanese-style onsen usually do not wear bathing suits

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.
