What You Can Expect

Yangmingshan National Park and Hot-Spring Half-Day Tour from Taipei

Yangmingshan National Park and Hot-Spring Half-Day Tour from Taipei

After hotel pickup in Taipei, board your comfortable coach and begin your half-day tour with an approximate 30-minute drive north to Yangmingshan National Park — popular with locals and tourist alike. On arrival at the geothermal park boasting more than a dozen hot springs and fumaroles, you’ll enjoy a 1-hour driving tour past steaming pools and sulfur-encrusted crater lakes.

Learn from your knowledgeable guide about Yangmingshan’s rich volcanic terrain that supports grassy plains, blossoming cherry trees, and an array of butterflies and birdlife. A photo stop is made at a volcanic viewpoint where you may catch a glimpse of the conical-shaped Mt Qixing, Taipei’s tallest peak at 3,675 feet (1,120 meters) above sea level.

Afterward, continue the drive downhill to Beitou Hot Spring Park to experience one of the best hot spring baths in Taiwan. You’re treated to a relaxing soak in sulfurous waters of varying temperatures, said to relieve muscle pains, digestive and skin problems, and other ailments.

Relaxed and refreshed, complete your afternoon tour with the return drive to Taipei and hotel drop-off.

Loved our tour guide Jacky Chan and we were the only people on the tour which was awesome as we both can speak fluent mandarin. Jacky was very informative and very funny. He showed us the different types of the cherry blossoms. He is very knowledgable and also he can speak fluent Japanese!!!!

This was a great tour! The guide, Jackie, was very informative and made for a great expereince. The volcanic landscapes and the tour climax at a traditional Hot Spring was very relaxing. A word of caution, we were taken to a traditional local hotspring ... dress code was mandatorily nude. A bit of a shock! But part of the cultural experience.

Highly recommended. The guide was great with the whole group. He was very knowledgable about the area. Remember that you need to ask questions if you don't know anything about Taiwan. He will point out the main places on the way and if you see something else just ask.

Great tour! Very helpful and accommodating. Our guide was great, a good mix of information and time to take in the different scenery. The easy pick-up and drop-off at hotels was especially convenient and helpful. One tip: wear clothes that you may not care about because the hot springs smell like sulfur and can make your clothes smell for days on end. Overall, it was a great tour and I would highly recommend it.

Bonus of this trip is we get to see Cherry Blossom! Although the park is smaller than we expected. The other bonus was that I didn't expect the tour to include the entry and usage of the hot spring. It was a nice experience!

The National Park was lovely but as it was winter it would be more picturesque in spring. Particularly enjoyed the hot springs. This was a unique and enjoyable experience. The tour guide was good. The group was small so there was opportunity to ask questions.

The weather was bad and I was the only one of the tour. The guide (who had not done all that well on a previous tour) was much better this time and gave enough information and answered questions. The hot spring visit was fine.
