Beitou District is the northernmost of the twelve districts of Taipei City, Taiwan.
Beitou is the most mountainous and highest of Taipei's districts,encompassing a meadow with rivers running through the valley which have abundant steam rising from them; the result of geothermal warming. The valley is often surrounded by mist shrouding the trees and grass.
Beitou is famous for its hot springs In March 2012, it was named one of the Top 10 Small Tourist Towns by the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan.

Inexpensive hot springs Aug 01, 2013
This place is easy to miss, but worth looking for. It costs NT 40 to get in, and an additional 20 to rent a locker. If you don't have your own bathing suit, you can buy one there. They also sell bottled water and other beverages (you will probably be thirsty when you emerge from the water!) The hot springs are mostly patronized by elderly men in tiny bathing suits, so you've been forewarned.
The hottest pool is the one furthest up the hill, which is about like hot-tub temperature. As you go down, the temperature of the pool lowers to "hot bath" and then "warm bath" at the bottom. When the heat starts to feel uncomfortable, you can dip into the cold pool off to the side.
The pool has some rules that are posted outside in Chinese, Japanese, and English. They're mostly pretty logical though. Don't get in if you are menstruating, don't get in if you have diarrhea, be cautious if you have heart disease or high blood pressure, etc... They DO, however, insist that you submerge your body past your feet and lower than your heart. The pool does close every couple hours for half an hour. So if you arrive at the wrong time, you may have to wait a few minutes.
And a final word, if you are a western woman by herself, you may get a few stares and/or snickers. The local women that visit the hot springs dress more modestly for the pool (think tank tops and knee-length shorts). Nothing too uncomfortable, but it does happen. Makes a relaxing way to start or end a busy day in the city.
