    Have a hot spring experience


    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.

    Hot springs resort


    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.

    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.
