Day 7 in Taiwan, was one of our best days so far. Ying and I woke up at our new hotel, and we decided to go on a quick day trip to Beitou hot springs, a famous area in Taipei, where there’s a natural hot water spring, and home to quite a lot of history, attractions and relaxing hotels. It was very easy to get from central Taipei to Beitou by using public transportation on the train, and it took about 30 minutes to get from central Taipei to Xin Beitou station. From Xin Beitou station, we walked over to the hot springs area.
2:15 Beitou Public Library
The first place we arrived on our day trip to Beitou hot springs was the Beitou Public Library. The library is fully in use, but the reason it’s popular to visit and it’s kind of an attraction is because of its unique architecture and its eco friendly design. We didn’t spend more than a few minutes there, but just looked at it from the outside and then took a quick peek inside.
2:45 Beitou Hot Springs Museum
One of the main attractions at Beitou is the hot springs museum, originally the original Japanese bathhouse in Beitou. It’s not a huge museum, and the price is free, so it’s a good place to just check out for a few minutes before moving on.
3:29 Beitou Plum Garden
I thought it was just going to be a garden with plums, but it was actually the former home of a famous Chinese calligrapher. The house was another quick stop on our day trip, but worth the quick visit.
3:52 Beitou Hot Springs - Public Bath
The time finally came to visit the main attraction at Beitou, the hot springs. They have many higher end spas and hotels with private baths, but I went for the public Taiwanese style hot spring bath. They didn’t allow any photography inside, but it was pretty nice and I enjoyed soaking in the natural hot water for a few minutes before moving on with our day.
4:54 Thermal Valley
One of the most famous things to see in Beitou is the Thermal Valley, a big pool of water that’s boiling hot and is the source of the hot springs for Beitou. The water is really hot and there’s not swimming so it’s more of just a viewpoint and a place to take photos.
While there, we met up with Joe, Raymond, and his Father, by random chance. They were visiting from California and were spending the day at the Beitou hot springs and were en-route to have lunch and go to another hot spring and invited us to go along with them.
6:32 Epic Taiwanese Country Style Farm Lunch
Along with Joe, Raymond, and his Father, we drove through the mountains and after about 45 minutes we arrived at a small local style hot spring where we were going to have lunch. They did all the ordering and we were soon faced with what was one of the best Taiwanese food meals I had the entire trip to Taiwan. All the food was home style cooked, and tasted very country style, and everything was delicious. I especially enjoyed the deer on the hot plate and the roast quail.
On Day 7 in Taiwan, we planned to just take a day trip to Beitou hot springs, but completely unplanned, it turned into one of the best days of our trip and one of the best meals as well.
Big thank you to Joe, Raymond, and his Father for inviting us!

I had the opportunity to visit Taiwan for a week. Marking the second country in Asia I've been to. I've been living in Japan for a year now and will be posting more adventure vlogs about that soon. This first part of my Taiwan series is located in Wulai, a quaint valley village outside of Taipei about 40 minutes. We collaborated with some local businesses:
Pause Landis Resort:
So go to the end of the old street past the wild boar sausage stand, you'll see a bridge crossing the river on the right, go over that and take a left, you'll see a mural of deer on the wall to the right and the Fish Spa is across from that - the sign is small but the downstairs sells icecream/ice treats.
Things I ate were all tasty, but as you can see some, harder to chew than others.

Taipei 4K - Beitou Hot Springs and How to Get There - Taipei Travel Vlog
Taipei Travel Vlog. Taipei 4K Videos. We are in Taipei, Taiwan and in this video we focus on the Beitou Hot Springs (in Chinese 北投溫泉) and how to get there! The Beitou Hot Springs or Beitou Thermal Valley are Taipei attractions (Top Taipei Attractions) and are located relatively close to the Taipe City Center so they are easily reached as a day excursion or a visit for just a few hours.
In thi video we show you how to get to Xinbeitou Beitou by using the Taipei MRT. Our MRT Train jouney bean at Zhongshan MRT Station (the location of our Taipei hotel).
- Take the Taipei MRT Red Line towards Tamsui Station.
- Before Tamsui Station, jump off the train at Beitou Station.
- At Beitou Station change train platforms to the train going to Xinbeitou Station.
When you get to Xinbeitou , exit the station and from there all the tourist attractions and directions to them are all ell marked and easy to find.
Attractions include the Beitou Hot Spring Museum (closed for renovations until October 2018), the Taipei Public Library, the Xinbeitou Historic Station, the Thermal Valley, the Outdoor Public Hot Spring, the Plum Garden, the Ketagalan Culture Center and the Yangmingshan National Park located 30 to 40 minutes from Xinbeitou by bus.
FROM THE SIGN AT THE THERMAL VALLEY:
1. Beitou Thermal Valley is 3,500 square meters, a depression formed before the volcano eruption. The hot spring here may reach over 90°C in some areas, and is the hottest spring in Datun Volcano Group. It was open to public to cook eggs and a lot of scalding issues occured and the hot spring was also contaminated. In 1993, the Taipei City Council decided this place should be administered as other water sources.
2. The hot spring comes from deep inside the volcano, and it is acidified with volcanic gas. The hot water rises to the earth surface and mixes with surface water to form the hot spring. It is called green sulfur as the water is light green, like jade, and contains a lot of sulfate minerals and traces of radium, a radioactive matter. After a long period of sedimentation, it crystalizes on the rock bed of Beitou Stream. It is then called hokutolite, Beitou Rock in Chinese, which is the only rare mineral named after a place name in Taiwan. It is only discovered in Beitou and Tamagawa Hot Spring in Senboku, Japan. Parts of Beitou Stream have been designated as Hokutolite Nature Reserve and public access is prohibited. The hokutolite is on display in Beitou Hot Spring Museum and Beitou Thermal Valley.
3. It is said the green sulfur spring has healing and rehabilitation effects. The hot spring is available to hot spring users in Xinbeitou and the Beitou Public Hot Spring, commissioned by Taipei Water Department.
We are also on Facebook and Instagram:
Wiki writes about Beitou, Beitou District is the northernmost of the twelve districts of Taipei City, Taiwan. The historical spelling of the district is Peitou. The name originates from the Ketagalan word Kipatauw, meaning witch. Beitou is the most mountainous and highest of Taipei's districts, encompassing a meadow with rivers running through the valley which have abundant steam rising from them; the result of geothermal warming. The valley is often surrounded by mist shrouding the trees and grass. Beitou is famous for its hot springs. In March 2012, it was named one of the Top 10 Small Tourist Towns by the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan...

5 THINGS TO DO IN BEITOU
1. Hot Springs (05:17)
On leaving MRT Xinbeitou Station, you will immediately see the entrance to Beitou Hot Spring Park across the main road, to the right. Take a walk through this long and narrow park, and check out the shallow Beitou Stream, steaming with hot-spring water. About two-thirds of the way through the park, which slopes upward from the main road, you’ll spot a beautifully restored historic building, today home to the Beitou Hot Spring Museum (hotspringmuseum.taipei). This was originally a public bathhouse, built in 1913, at the time the largest of its kind in East Asia. Here you can learn about the history of hot-spring bathing in Beitou while, among other things, viewing a restored Romanesque pool with Roman-style columns as well as a Japanese-style tatami post-bathing rest area.
There is a wide range of options in Beitou for your own hot-spring bathing, including upscale hot-spring hotels such as the Grand View Resort Beitou (gvrb.com.tw). If you are on a limited budget, however, and just want to experience the simple pleasures of outdoor-pool soaking together with local hot-spring lovers, head to the Beitou outdoor public hot springs, formally called the Millenium Hot Spring, a few minutes on foot west of the hot-spring museum along Zhongshan Road (open daily; tickets NT$40). For more info about hot-spring bathing options in Beitou and around Taiwan, visit taiwanhotspring.net.
2. Public Library (04:19)
Also located inside Beitou Hot Spring Park, between the museum and the public pools, is an interesting building that resembles a giant ark. This is the Beitou Branch of the Taipei Public Library, an ultra-efficient modern building constructed with protection of the environment in mind and offering a pleasant space for reading and studying. Opened to the public in 2006, the library is housed in an award-winning green building with such features as solar panels on the roof, rainfall capturing/storage systems, and a design that keeps power consumption to a minimum.
3. Thermal Valley (06:32)
At the far, upper end of the hot-spring park, look left and you’ll spot the entrance to Thermal Valley, the source of the park area’s sulfurous hot-spring water. Surrounded by trees, this deep, rock-strewn depression was created long ago by a volcanic burst. The sulfurous waters in the depression’s large pool bubble and spit, the steam sometimes filling the entire little valley on cool days. The Ketagalan people who once lived in the area called the valley “Patauw,” meaning “witch” or “sorceress.” “Beitou” is a bastardization of this original name.
4. Beitou Museum (8:23)
Further uphill from the hot-spring park and the thermal-spring valley, on Youya Road, is the Beitou Museum (beitoumuseum.org.tw), an excellent place to learn more about Beitou’s history, indigenous culture, and the Japanese colonial era – the museum building was original constructed in 1921 as a fancy hot-spring hotel for the Japanese elite – and also to taste fine cuisine (Kaiseki-style) and take in irregular cultural performances (in a spacious tatami room).
5. Xinbeitou Historic Station (00:50)
Back beside MRT Xinbeitou Station is another heritage building you don’t want to miss, the Xinbeitou Historic Station (xbths.taipei). Located in the small park on the southern side of the station, this important work of heritage architecture was reopened earlier this year. Originally built in 1916, the station was dismantled in 1988 to make room for the MRT station, and was then purchased, rebuilt, and displayed at the Taiwan Folk Village in Changhua County, central Taiwan, before being returned to Taipei in 2013. After being painstakingly restored once again over a period of four years, the station has now become one of the most iconic historic attractions in the city.

VLOG | Taipei Taiwan | Beitou, Hotspring, Din Tai Fung, St. Christopher's Church | Day 3
On our third day in Taipei, Taiwan, we went to so many places.
First, we went to Beitou where we visited the Beitou Public Library - this place was divine! I wish I had my laptop/book. It's the perfect place to chill!
After that, we went to the Open Air Hot Spring but I was hesitant since it was a public bath and I'm not really comfortable. That's why we decided to go to Atami Hotel - we paid 600NTD for 1 hr, good for 2 people for a private bath.
We had our late lunch at Sushi Express near Beitou Park since we were really hungry and we just wanted to eat something ASAP. It was one of our fancier meals. LOL. Most of the food we ate were bought on the streets. HAHAHA
After which, we went to the Nangnang Exhibition area. We stayed in this area because we did not want to be late for the 6pm mass at St. Christopher's Church. We spent our time walking around the area and visiting Taipei Fine Arts museum.
When we were inside Taipei Fine Arts museum, I felt really tired and quite uninterested so I told Jed to just leave me at the canteen and go around the area since he really wanted to.
Around 4:45, we started walking towards St. Christopher's Church to hear the 6pm Simbang Gabi Mass. Simbang Gabi - is a Filipino tradition where you attend 9 days of masses; Novena masses.
After hearing mass, we hopped on a bus to go to SOGO where we found Din Tai Fung. Generally, Din Tai Fung in Taiwan has the same quality and price in Manila.
Our last stop was Shilin Public Market. Since it was our last day in Taiwan, we spent most of what's left of our NTD's to buy Pasalubong or gifts for our family and friends.
Taiwan was really amazing! Can't wait to go back in March 2017!!! :D

Taipei Food Tour, Beitou Hot Springs & Friends-themed Cafe | 台北美食之旅和北投溫泉
Thanks to Taipei EATS! we tried so many (every?!?) kind of Taiwanese food that we had never even heard of. From soup with intestines and ovaries to fried liver to oyster pancakes to jello soup and duck noodles (please note, these are absolutely not at all the correct or even the scientific names for these foods). We had an amazing time with Tina and walking around a neighborhood we never would have found for ourselves! We also had to get a little creative due to the heavy downpour we found ourselves in and were FORCED to relax in the Beitou Hot Springs, just about 45 minutes outside of central Taipei via the metro and discovered Central Park -- the Taiwan 'Friends' themed cafe!!

We had been dating for ~6 months when we bought one way tickets to New Zealand — definitely a make-it-or-break-it-dating situation. It turned into a 9-month trip around the world from hiking through Fiji to safaris in Tanzania to trekking in Nepal and scuba diving in Thailand. We bought our first camera (shout out GoPro 3) while on the road, and starting putting videos together from our experiences to share with friends and family. We’ve turned traveling into part of our lifestyle and aren’t stopping anytime soon — and our videos are just getting better and better (we hope).
BEITOU HOT SPRINGS - Best Day Trip From Taipei
We found some incredible hot springs in Taiwan - the Beitou hot springs are located in Taipei city and are absolutely beautiful - definitely, one of the top day trips from Taipei, combined with hiking in Yangmingshan is its close by.
The main hot springs require a ticket to enter, but there are lots of streams and even public baths nearby that are free to use. Don't get into the river though - water is MUCH too hot and could burn you. Check out my Taipei playlist for more Taiwan travel inspo.
