Went there at the end of May, 2014. Getting there wasn't hard but it is no longer an easy bus ride. From Tainan, you have to take a train North to Xinying. Then you cross the street to the bus terminal and take the Yellow bus or one of the local buses to BeiHe. From BeiHe, it's a short bus... More

My family was there due to the mud spa and the places of interest such as temple visit and the shu Huo tong yuan. We travelled up from Kaohsiung to xing ying train station and got a cab drive up to guanziling at NT 500 as is pretty worth it of four with big luggage compare to taking public transport... More

It's a good place to unwind & relax. Chose the King's Villa Garden (cost 450NTD). It is a public place but you can swim for as long as you want. They have a number of pools you can try, from 20 deg (cold) to 42 deg as well as normal chlorinated pools with jet massages, and saunas. You can even... More

After our day trip from Alishan, our taxi brought us to our next destination which is Guanziling. The trip from Alishan to Guanziling took about an hour plus on the winding road. I really admire how the taxi driver can drive in such road condition with so many blind spots. We booked the Toong Mao Spa resort which is located... More

We took a taxi up to the King's Garden Villa. The taxi ride was Taiwan Dollar 1000 for a return trip. He waited about 1 hour for us to soak in the mud. The ride was about 30 minutes. You get to place mud on you body and face and get smooth refreshed moisten skin. We forgot to bring/rent swimming... More

However the mud pool is very watery (I enjoyed more the mud bath in... More

It does take a bit to get out to Guanziling and once you get there finding a place without some previous experience can be overwhelming. If you're going for a day, I say head to King's Inn Garden to used their public hot springs facility. It's around NT$400~500 for person and about 7 hot/cold springs to try out. If you're... More

We return to Taiwan so quickly because we enjoyed our last trip so much. I read and realized that we missed the Guanziling Hot Spring. So we returned especially for the unique mud spring, one of only 3 places in the world. And it is the most affordable - the other two are in Italy and Japan. There are plenty... More
