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 go when it's raining (which I did) bc though the pools are outdoors they are covered. The surroundings are well decorated, planned & clean.I also checked out Reiko's resort & for the private mud bath was quoted 600NTD for 1 hour where you are given a small grey room and for 1400NTD you can swim for 1.5 hours in the indoors public spa room; certainly not worth i. I was at the King's Villa for 3 hours.
Don't know if you will get smooth skin; haven't notice a difference. The water feels the same as any other bath. The water is not any more viscous, just grey/brown in colour but it was worth a try since Guanziling is reputed to be 1 of the only 3 sites of its type in the world for this particular mud bath (others are Japan & Italy).
Getting there from Tainan: Catch the local Tainan rail to "Xinying" Station (that's how it's actually spelt at the station. Cost 67NTD). When you exit Xinying station, on the opposite side of the station, across the roundabout is a bus station. Buy the ticket (approx.79NTD) from the guy sitting at the table to the back of the waiting seats. Bus 7404, 7414 & 7416 will take you to "Guanziling" bus stop. You walk up the road for 500 m or so and you will see an English sign to the left, "King's Garden Villa"; take that road left, 200 m up, King's Garden Villa is on your right (Reiko's resort is just before it).
