It took about 45 min to get to the hot springs from Ximen Station, I had to change once from metro to 508 bus. Admission to hot springs costs 200 NTD, and you need two 10 NTD coins to use a locker (non refundable). Try...More

Went with kids and my dad. Good Japan-like experience with semi-open air pools (always a favorite). Three pools of varying levels of heat + icy plunge. Massage beams. Steam bath is nice too. Go mid-morning to avoid crowding. Stunning value if you redeem the entrance...More

Was very surprised to find out that the entry is free if you spend more than NTD 400 per person in the restaurant, you can choose to dine first or spa first. The place itself is serene but kinda aged, but still clean and functional....More

i guess the area around Kawayu has many baths, but our friend brought us to Kawayu as it was recommended by his friends (and, was said to be more like the Japanese onsen with which we are familiar). the (gender-separated) pool areas are rustic, and...More

Really nice Japanese style hot spring close to central Taipei. It has a variety of outdoor baths with varying temperatures and mineral density. It was quite easy to find the main entrance to the facility but a bit tricky to find the onsen itself because...More

Cheap price, but unacceptable dirty. Mosquitos everywhere. Clerk gave wrong intro of pricing, and required higher price on checkout.

We came here with young kids so we took a taxi from Shipai metro station. Had a lovely lunch with some homely Taiwanese food (spicy stinky tofu, noodles with sesame oil, sticky rice, veggies served in hotpot) and some Japanese food (grilled fish). Spent about...More

This is a small but nice onsen in the hotspring area of Taipei. The adjecent restaurant offers really good meals for a reasonable price. If you spend more than 200TWD you will be granted free acces to the onsen. The onsen is seperated for sexes,...More
