Nice place! I enjoyed the hot spring! The view was great. Easy drive from Taipei. There are some good locations to stop by. You may do some hiking and enjoy the good view.

Visited XiaoYouKeng. No words could describe the feelings when you see the fumaroles. Power of Mother Nature. Beautiful scenery and breezy. You just have to come see for yourself!

Went to Yangmingshan in Apr for the much talked about calla lillies. We weren't disappointed. When we reached Zhuzi Hu, we just went into the first farm. We gotta buy a ticket which can be used to offset purchases such as flowers or meals. The scenery was fantastic. We were just overwhelmed by calla lillies, pure n elegant. Definitely enjoyed... More
