Take #1879 of King Bus from Nangang Exhibition Center (Next to Exit 1 of the MRT station is the ticket booth, the ticket being NT$165 for one way) and arrive in Suao in about 70 minutes. Follow the signs and soon you will see the Suao Cold Spring Park.

The admission is NT$70. But I highly recommend that you reserve a private hot and cold bathroom (40 minutes) for NT$450/2 people. It should be noted that the water for hot bath is heated cold spring, not hot spring. Expect to wait during the peak season.

While you wait, you might as well try the public bath. The water is not deep. But it is fairly cold. To immerse yourself completely takes some time. Once you are in the water, however, it is refreshingly comfortable.

The private bath is fine, with a wooden tub for hot bath and a stone tub for cold bath. Towels or robes or other amenities, unfortunately, are not provided. Try the hot and the the cold and the other way around to get different sensations.

40 minutes is not long, not to mention how much time it takes to fill the wooden tub with heated cold spring. The staff will knock the door ten minutes before your time is up. There is no clock in the bathroom. Keep track of time. You know how fleeting time can be.

After that, I suggest that you either take #1879 back to Taipei or take a train to Luodong (NT$20 on the Local Train in less than 30 minutes) and tour the Luodong Night Market if you wish.

This is an open cold spring. But place is closed for renovation. No date available when it will reopen. There is another place nearby for washing clothes. We went over to experience the cold spring.

Went to this famous cold spring on a monday afternoon. The counter will sell you a room for 2 (depending on the number of persons) and it includes free usage at the common pool. The room for 2 was private, with the cold spring and a tub for hot water. Instructions is to dip in the hot water for 10 minutes and subsequently the cold spring for 15 minutes. The transition was mind-blowing. Overall a fantastic experience. The common pool cleaniness is less than desired so suggest you take up a room package. It costs us TWD400 for 40 minutes for the 2 of us.

My wife and me was at the Suao Cold Spring in Dec. The whole place is bit of a disappointment. It is not only run-down the cubicle for two person is real cramp. So when one of them take a shower the other person has to wait. Imagine the chillness while waiting. Secondly, the water was already filled up when we were there. I strongly believe the water was not replaced after a few usuage. I prefer the hot spring in Jiaosi. Not doubt is expensive but the water is only filled in your presence.

We booked a room for 2 person with hot and cold spring water for NT $450. Due to hot weather, I do enjoy soaking in cold spring water.I heard only 2 in the world with this cold spring water. Worth a visit.

The cold spring is kind of old and lack of maintainence. I went to the private cold spring and again it was old and just a simple room. It was a good experience but I wouldn't say it is a must-visit-place

It's a cheap entry fee (NT$70 - approx. U$2-3 per person for public bath) and the water is cool for a hot weather, however it's not very clean and not as we expected. A little bit of disappointment, but overall okay. We did not try the private bath though.

This is a very unique fishing town with both cold and hot spring plus nice sea food restaurants. There are only two upper class hotels in this area with hot/cold spring pools in every guestroom.

It's a summer day, this place is highly recommended by our host. We are from Malaysia, we always go to hot spring but never try cold spring, so this is the 1st time to experience it.

Interesting experience for us, a family with 2 young boys, all of us new to either hot/cold springs. Knowing how hot the hot spring water can be & that all of us would be unwilling to step into one, the cold spring is a great experience especially since it's summer when we were there. Water temp abt 22 degC. We got a private bath, duration abt 45min. We let the boys have their turn splashing water in it for 15min then let them out to play phone games while we had our turn relaxing in it for a while. We really can see bubbles forming on our skin.
Pls bring towels although you get to buy there too which we did. If you want to try the public pool, do bring swimming costumes.
