Unfortunately the government recently destroyed the hot springs because of the danger when bathing next to the unpredictable river. All entrances are closed, but you can still make it to the hot springs via a small improvised path. You won’t find the nice springs anymore...More

It is recommended to take a dip in the hot pool which the locals had setup for. The reason that they have this free public pools are due to the opening of various commercial hot spring resorts or hotel just opposite the public hot spring....More

It's pretty fun catching the bus up into the mountains. Lonely Planet and other guides give exact location for bus from the train. Can get a bit hairy for those suffering from travel sickness. Just pray for a seat. Lovely walking through the town and...More

If you want to spend a little quiet time in the countryside, this is recommended for a daytrip and quick dip in the hot spring.

Only 1 hour to get from Taipei. Hotels everywhere and the price is reasonable. A good relaxing place which you can spend at least one night here to enjoy the hotspring. The river in Wulai is an outdoor hotspring which is open to public.

Xindian / Wulai District
The Bitan Scenic Area with its beautiful mountains and
rivers was one of the eight sceneries of Taiwan
earlier on and was reputed as the “little red cliff”
due to its steep cliffs on the west bank. If you enjoy
wandering through this area by bike, there are well
established surrounding riverside cycling paths. One
may also boat on Bitan in paddle boats which are also
quite pleasant. If you are tired and would like to
