Shop around for reasonable rates. We chose one with private bath for 300 NT for one hour (others charge as much as 1000+).

We were a group of friends looking for a hot spring to visit while in Yi-Lan county. We took the train to Jiaoxi and went to the Tourist Information Centre at Jiaoxi Park for suggestions. Chanced upon a brochure for Forest Bath and decided to check it out.

Here's what we like:

1) Quiet and peaceful - there were less than 5 other people (we visited on a weekday afternoon).

2) Outdoor pools - several to try plus a sauna (the sauna wasn't too hot, but we're not complaining)

3) Wonderful surroundings - quiet, peaceful, natural surroundings.

4) Clothes optional - you can wear swimwear, or go the full monty. One of the indoor pools in the men's section requires you to be fully nude.

5) Men and women have separate sections. You'll need a towel, or you can buy one from the counter. Basic amenities like shower gel, shampoo, hairdryers are also available.

6) The price - NT$150 - really affordable!

There isn't anything to complain about. We were fortunate to have visited during a quiet period. Will definitely go back again!

This hot spring is open from 4-8pm, and only 150$NT. Its authentic Japanese style, no swimsuits, and separated male/female. We had toured many Japanese onsen and were hoping to find a similar one like this in Taiwan. It was well worth it. In fact, we came back here a second time 2 weeks later it was so good.

There are many outdoor baths set in a very natural surrounding, so relaxing. The baths to the furthest edges have rock/stones lining them, the ones under the shelter are stone or tile.

This is a great hot spring, don't miss it.

**I dont know of a hotel attached to this, perhaps this attraction is too vague and some think it is meaning the Jiaosi hot spring town. There are many hot springs in town, mostly in hotels. This one you have to walk north past evergreen hotel, past the swimming pool looking hot spring, into the foot spa area then you will arrive at the hot spring entrance once you walk through a nice pond and rock garden.

I've a room by myself and my wife. The whole place is very class and beautiful. We both like the setup.

This is referring to the hotspring at the city centre as provided free by the local governor. Good fun. There is a beer garden there which is really over-priced. Easier for you to walks steps away to the 7-11 or local Family Mart to get your cold beer to drink while soaking your feet in the hotspring.
