Best hot springs – and one cold – to visit this winter in Taiwan

LOS ANGELES, CA – 11/16/2016 (PRESS RELEASE JET) — As temperatures drop below freezing, warm up this winter with a dip in Taiwan’s natural hot springs. Discover three must-experience hot springs, plus a wintertime challenge in ice-cold waters!

Thanks to its unique geological location between two seismic plates and an active volcanic system, Taiwan is teeming with more than 100 high-temperature thermal springs across its landscape.

Located in Taiwan’s capital city of Taipei, Beitou Hot Springs brings together wellness, culture and history. The steaming, open-air pools offer a peaceful retreat, while the Beitou Hot Springs Museum delights and inspires. Learn the history of the Beitou area and take a stroll through the beautiful Victorian-era bathhouse.

Surrounded by lush, emerald-green forests and tumbling waterfalls, Chihpen Hot Springs in Taitung is a nature lover’s haven. Named the Top Spot in Asia by “Lonely Planet”, this region of eastern Taiwan showcases natural beauty, cultural diversity and unique aboriginal cuisine that has given way to the local slow food movement.

Just off the coast of Taiwan are the rare salt waters of Zhaori Hot Springs on Green Island. Its position alongside the Pacific Ocean creates a unique combination of seawater and underground water heated by volcanic lava, making this one of only three salt-water springs in the world. With three open-air pools and a spa pool, you’ll find ultimate tranquility here, soothed by the sounds of the surf and warming wellness of the waters.

Finally, for those who have always wanted to plunge into icy waters, Su’ao Cold Spring is a must. This is one of only two cold springs of its kind in the world, with naturally carbonated waters that drop below 22C degrees. As you slowly submerge into the bath over the course of five minutes, the tingling bubbles refresh and rejuvenate your skin, improve circulation and ease aches and pains.

Though winter is the perfect season to indulge in a hot springs tour, these rich mineral resources are an amazing experience all year long. Celebrate these natural wonders at the Hot Spring & Fine-Cuisine Carnival, running through February 28, 2017. The festivities are already underway, so now is the time to experience the healing benefits of these tranquil waters.
