During my time in Taiwan, one of my favorite activities was a visit to the hot springs.
Imagine pure relaxation...
We headed up to the Beitou area of Taipei City to the Spring City Resort for some much needed soaking in the hot springs.
The resort lies in the cool foothills of Yangmingshan high above Beitou's town section with beautiful views.
There are about 8 different pools to try out.
After our team began to get pruney, we washed up for dinner at the Chikurintei Japanese Restaurant.
It is well worth a trip to Beitou if you're staying in Taipei.
