Taipei 8 Days 7 Nights Trip (Day 6)

After walking around for so many days, it’s time for some relaxation. We went to Xin Bei Tou for hot spring! It is a very nice place to relax. There are a lot of hot spring resort at Xin Bei Tou. You can choose to stay there for a day. However, there are nothing much to do over there other than hot spring.

The Dress Up Area

I would recommend you to head to this resort for hotspring because their room is very clean. Everything that you need is there. Relaxing and peaceful.

After hot spring, we went to tour around to see the scenery in Xin Bei Tou. Whatever you see in Xin Bei Tou are related to hotspring. They have a hotspring museum, thermal valley, etc.

The hotspring museum shows how hotspring actually comes about. Do visit if you are interested to know more about it. I can’t really remember if we paid for the entrance fee.

In the hotspring museum

After visiting the hotspring museum, we walked down further to the Beitou Thermal Valley. It basically shows you how the heat of the hotspring is being generated. Small area so it will only take you a short while 🙂

Beitou Thermal Valley

Xin Bei Tou is all about sight seeing and hotspring. It is a very small area so I don’t think anyone would get lost. Along the way, you can stop to some pictures. I would say it’s a good place to relax after shopping for so many days 🙂

Enough of relaxing and it’s time to continue our walk. Our next destination was Dan Shui which is where the Couple bridge is located.

Dan Shui

Look at the amount of people at Dan Shui. I guess there were some events going on on that day. Dan Shui is actually a good place to chill out because it was very windy when we went there and it was least crowded if you head to the other part.

To get to the couple bridge (Qing Ren Qiao), you would have to take a boat over. If I did not remember wrongly, there is no need for you to purchase any ticket because there will be a person stand at the entrance to collect the fee from their customers.

Yu Ren Ma Tou

Note: If you are heading there during winter, do bring extra scarf because the wind is really strong that makes it really cold. I love this place because it’s windy and there’s nice scenery.

Night Scene at Yu Ren Ma Tou

Remember to buy Tie Dan when you are in Dan Shui because that’s the only place that sells lots of tie dan!.

Ah ha, it’s time to go back to shopping! After Dan Shui, we headed down to Shilin Night Market. Do take note that the Shilin Night Market has been shifted to a new location. The nearest station is actually Jiantan Station.
