Hot spring festivals are taking place in Jiaoxi, Wulai and Xinbeitou

The hot spring areas of northern Taiwan are much visited by people from all over the world because of their convenient transport, high-quality spring water, and beautiful views. This year, the Tourism Bureau, MOTC and the Guanyinshan National Scenic Area Administration will hold the 2018-2019 Taiwan Hot Springs - Exploring Northern Taiwan’s Hot Springs with the administrations of Xinbeitou, Yangmingshan, Shamaoshan, Wanli, Wulai, and Jiaoxi. 

Throughout Taiwan, hot spring festivals are kicking off one after another, starting from mid Oct. The 2018 Yilan Forever Young Hot Spring Festival will take place joyously from Oct. 13 to 28 at Jiaoxi Hot Spring Park, alongside street parades, music parties, and BBQ moonlight parties. The 2018 Wulai Hot Spring Ecotour will also soon be held from Oct. 13 to 21. Visitors are encouraged to explore the mountain town of Wulai, staying away from air pollution. The next is the 2018 Taipei Hot Spring Festival, starting on Nov. 1 and running until the 5th at Qixing Street beside MRT Xinbeitou Station. This year’s theme is “a feast of hot springs and blessings.” A great number of hot spring businesses will set up stands at the site to promote their services. A flamboyant street parade, at which a few children will carry sedan chairs for local deities, will be held. There will also be a “yukata” design exhibition and a karaoke contest inspired by old-time Bieou. Members of the public, young and old, are invited to visit these areas for nice hot spring baths and good food.

There are a variety of hot springs in northern Taiwan. The hot springs in Xinbeitou are full of Japanese charm, and they can be easily reached by MRT. At the Wanli hot springs of Jinshan, visitors can enjoy fresh seafood. The Jiaoxi hot springs of Lanyang Plain are famous for vegetables grown with spring water. The Wulai hot springs are located in an indigenous Ayatal region and they are surrounded by lush green trees. Yangmingshan and Shamaoshan hot springs provide magnificent geological views and a diverse natural ecology. Once again, all members of the public are cordially invited to visit these hot springs and enjoy them well.
