    Have a hot spring experience


    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.

    Hot Sulphuric spring


    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.

    Cool area to explore


    There are hotels available if you are interested and some of them have private hot spring too. Else can consider paying a small entrance free for those public hot spring area. There are a few free hotspring in you can soak your legs too.

    Should try it


    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.

    Lovely Way To Explore Local Culture While Relaxing.


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