In Taipei, the two most famous hot spring baths are Xin Beitou and Wulai (Let’s check it out the fullest review at here.). Generally speaking, Xin Beitou is poetically beautiful. It is most well known for Beitou Library, a stunning large public library entirely made of wood during the Japanese Rule. Walking a little further, you will see Beitou Public Hot Spring, a public hot spring bath with a really cheap entrance ticket of 40TWD/person, so it is always crowded and you definitely have to bring your swimwear to enter the bathing area. Next, you should visit Beitou Thermal Valley, also called the mineral valley, which is popular for its signature choral blue water and always surrounded by smoke like a fairy scene with the scent of minerals vaporized from the boiling water. One interesting thing is that the mineral water circuit runs around the neighborhood, so you will see smoke coming from manholes and hear a creepy sound of the boiling water on your way. Now, let’s check it out our Grand View Resort Beitou Hot Spring review (Grand View Resort Beitou review): Hot spring bath at Grand View Resort Beitou, Taipei (also known as Grand Beitou Resort, Grand View Taipei, Grandview Resort, Grand Resort Beitou, Grand View Beitou, Grand View Hot Spring Beitou, Grand View Hotel Beitou) below.

Below is Thermal Valley in Beitou.
Known as the land of underground water, it is a waste to only go sightseeing when visiting Beitou. Visitors usually go bathing at luxurious and private hot spring spa resorts. Unlike hot springs at Wulai where the locals usually visit thanks to its quiet atmosphere, hot springs at Beitou are more acquainted to welcome travellers because there are easier routes to get here. In particular, if travelling by MRT, you can take the red line towards Tamsui and get off at Beitou, then transfer to MRT shuttle to get to the last stop at Xin Beitou.
And with the ambition to take hot spring bath, Grand View Resort Beitou should be your destination. Why? Because this is the only 5-star hot spring resort in Beitou. Luxurious and quietly situated in the middle of a hill, this is an atmosphere that everyone would like to enjoy after a long day touring around the area. Bonus 50 thousand photos of the place:
