If you go to Taichung, you should go to Guguan. I love this place! If you like hot springs, you can take a bath: don’t forget swimming suit. If you don’t like that, you can at least try a foot bath. The public bus is in service from Fengyuan bus terminal.

Steps, Butterflies, and Fish
Nov 2016 • Family
So hiking in Taiwn is a series of stairs, of course, and about halfway up was enough for me and the husband. The kids blazed on, but we adults stayed behind and enjoyed butterflies landing on and around us. Afterwards, we all wandered into the park where the fish eat your feet. That was a new and very interesting experience as well. The sensation is very unique. The fish like people with rough feet.

Hesitated for a while but glad to have made the trip
Nov 2016 • Couples
We were deciding whether to make the Long 2 hour bus ride from Taichung to Guguan but Glad we did. Great place to visit for hot spring baths and nature trekking. The nature paths in the highlands were memorable for its scenic spots and picturesque landscapes. The extra short trip to the "Pah Sian" hill was an added bonus. All in all a great escapade from busy Taichung.

Get Ready For a Climb
Dec 2015 • Friends
The trail is a series of uneven stairs, so you'd better be prepared for a climb. I only saw one snake, and it was a small one that slithered away when I walked by. There are stopping points along the stairs where you can sit, rest, and might even get a visit from the butterflies.

Difficult for non-Chinese tourists
Jan 2016
Unfortunately it is difficult have information of Guguan hot spring before the departure. After over two hors trip from Taichung you arrive. Tourist office do not speak english and cannot give information. It's a shame because there may be potential for tourism business. However, I found a hotel with great difficulty that I allowed the Swimming pool

A Trip to Guguan Hot Springs
Aug 2015
Guguan, in Bo-Ai Village of Heping District, is northeast of Taichung, 800 meters (2,600 ft.) above sea-level. It is located on the Central Cross-Island Highway, the one that used to cut through Taiwan in Taroko Gorge before the 921 earthquake of 1999 and Typhoon Toraji decimated the roadbed and made it unpassable to tourist going to Hualien on Taiwan's east coast. The many businesses and hotels along the route have suffered for fifteen years of it. Today, only old-time Taiwanese visit this spot, international tourists having to take the long way around to Taroko Gorge. The hot springs in Guguan, are odorless and carbonic, with a pH of 7.6, 48-60 degrees Celsius. Most of the dozens of hotels and spas there have hot spring, some public, some private. The Dajia river, where fisherman can still catch small trout, rises up across footbridges from the valley into luscious rain forests of creeks and waterfalls with a dozen trails of various lengths and challenges. My wife and I stayed at a place called Li Chih Shan Shui. The name is too small to read in English but it is well worthy finding becauseit is secluded behind the main road near the bus stop up a path a few minutes from the entrance. We were fortunate to stay in the VIP suite, an upgrade because of the lousy weather that caused
cancellation. Prices range from 1200 NT to 10,800 NT. By taking the public bus to Guguan, you can splurge
on a room with a private hot spring Jacuzzi. Meals are included in many rates.

Nice trip out of the city
Oct 2014 • Friends
Although not the most "beautiful/attractive" hot spring area in Taiwan, Guguan definitely had its own special charm. Tucked away in the mountains outside of Taichung, it makes an easy trip from the city when you want to get away for the weekend, etc. If you can, drive a car or scooter, otherwise there is a public bus that will take you from Taichung train station all the way into Guguan.
There are so many hotels with hot springs on offer, any budget can be accommodated for. And, after soaking in hot springs the whole day, what better way to end your day with an absolutely delicious "mountain meal" from one of the many local eateries scattered along the (one and only) main road.

Hot spring attempt
On the back of the review for going to the Guguan hot springs I thought I would try it out. After a long hike the day before I really welcomed the idea of a hot spring and this was to be my first hot spring.

We went to the town to find these hot springs and I gathered that all hot springs had been adopted by the hotels- no public hot springs. (Language barrier endured hence cannot be certain)

After reaching frustration and wanting to experience my first hot spring we researched the hotels.

We ended up going to the hot spring at the Bali hotel where for a price of 1,800 nt I could have a room with a bath that allegedly can be called a hot spring for a whole 2 hours.

Unless anyone can provide exact information on where to go for a hot spring in this area then I highly recommend you do not waste your time or money.

Yours very Frustrated and not relaxed :(((
