Taipei Trip Part 2

Day 2 and 3 was more relaxing compare to the first day, we finally have a chance to visit some local attraction such as their natural hot springs. It’s only a short MRT ride before we arrived Xinbeitou station from the centre of Taipei. After a short walk from the station you will reach the Hot Spring Museum where you can learn about the history of hot spring.

We then headed to the Millennium Hot Spring, it is the only open outdoor public spa there. There are many other private hot spring and beauty treatment inside hotels at a dearer cost if you prefer that way, just remember to bring your swimmer and the longest soaking time is 15 mins each session to avoid from getting dizzy.

The last stop before we head to XiMenDing is Thermal Valley, it is an interesting and beautiful place given the amount of sulphurous steam this place produces.

Once we reach XiMenDing , we felt so grateful that finally we are here, feeling youthful again ! XiMenDing is well known for its fashion, many clubs, pubs and cinemas.

    What a great looking trip! I’ve never even seen thousand year old egg previously to this post but I had certainly heard of it before. Looks so interesting!! I wonder how they get it like that – pickling or something?
