Just a few notes to supplement the other reviews. We took the 7214 bus, which runs between Chiayi station and Guanziling. The trick is to stay on the bus until the final stop (Lingding park on Google Maps) rather than get off in the "lower" part of Guanziling as we did and have to walk a way up the hill.... More

We went to Guanziling Hot Spring from Tainan. We took a train about one hour to Xinying Train station and went up to Guanziling hot spring by Cab which cause us NT1,000. But the taxi driver waited for us while we are at King's Garden Villa and has requested for NT1,200 instead. On the way down from Guanziling Hot Spring,... More

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
