Located in the north of Beitou, Yangminshan is Taiwan's only park where you can marvel at volcanic geography and indulge in a hot spring bath. This 300-acre park, designed in the traditional Chinese style, invites you to enjoy a touch of tranquility and relaxation away from the city. Shamao Mountain offers visitors a scenic retreat for mind, body and soul. Set in spectacular forested surrounds, the volcanic geology of the area has sourced a number of hot springs, thought to contain many healing properties. Sink into the warm waters, feel your ailments fade and let your tension float away…
We enjoyed this activity very much, it was a relaxing bike ride around the city & we had a great lunch. The kids also enjoyed the hike up elephant mountain.
But what made it extra special was that our tour guide Anita/Liyi was very knowledgable about the history of Taiwan. She even knew where to stand or position ourselves during the changing of the guards at The Chang Kasi Shek museum.
I would highly recommend this tour & i hope you get a tour guide like Anita.
