In cold and freezing weather, hot springs may come to mind to most people. Taiwan lies over the area
between two plates. Due to this unique geography, our beautiful island is dotted with 99 delightful hot springs.
Many of Taiwan’s best loved hot springs are in Yangmingshan, Peitou, and Wulai, each within an hour's drive
from downtown Taipei, and each offering visitors its own special scenery.
If you're a nature lover, the winter is a good time to hike in the hills of Yangmingshan and take a dip in a
hot spring. And winter is when the cherry flowers are in full bloom there. If you're a history buff, head for Peitou
Hot Spring Museum, and you'll be intrigued by all the Japanese-style architecture at the hot spring resorts and
the area's many historic sites. Less than an hour south from downtown Taipei is Wulai, Taipei County's only
Aboriginal mountain village. The visitors to Wulai can learn about the culture of the Atayal tribe and try out
their distinctive food. The beautiful waterfalls and gorges along Nanshih Creek will make you wonder if you've
come to a fairyland!
Wintertime is hot spring season in Taiwan. So go on. Make your winter!
