A travel guide for the hot springs of Beitou in Taipei
Taiwan. The hot spring town of Beitou was originally developed during the Japanese
colonial period
in the Fifties it was a big red light district. But in the Eighties it was
cleaned up by the Taiwanese government
and is now a great place to come enjoy nature and enjoy the beauty
of the natural hot springs. To get to Beitou take the MRT red line to the
Beitou station and then transfer to Shin Beitou.
You'll know you're near the hot springs at this station cause you can already
smell the sulfur smell.
The MRT has a special train on the red line that goes back and forth between
Beitou and Shin Beitou.
You'll know it's the right train because it's got hot spring characters
on the outside
this is the only hot springs subway car I know of in Taipei.
The inside of the train is special too. Featuring historical videos,
tables that look like bathtubs, and a nature car. Once you arrive at Xin Beitou station
you'll be greeted by some hot spring art of some little white characters
enjoying the hot springs. The main tourist attractions are all within an easy
walking distance
of Xin Beitou station. And there are plenty of signs along the way to guide you on.
To the Hot Springs - This Way!
In addition to signs there are also plenty of maps.
Seems like one every block or so,
There's even signs to tell you where all the hotels are.
About a 10 minute walk past the station is the entrance to the Beitou Thermal Valley
The source of that smelly hot spring water.
You'll know you'll be heading the right way cause the smell will get stronger.

word for witches cauldron
