From Taipei: Beitou Hotsprings and Yangmingshan Volcano Tour

2. From Taipei: Beitou Hotsprings and Yangmingshan Volcano Tour

Meet your tour guide and driver in the morning at MRT Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station and take a 40-minute journey to the Yangmingshan National Park. Along the way, stop by the Taipei Public Library at Beitou. Located in Beitou Park and near Beitou Hot Spring Museum, it is Taiwan's first "green library", and is one of the most beautiful public libraries in the world. It minimizes pollution and harm to the environment by using recycled materials and by being water and energy-efficient. Visit the Beitou Hot Spring Museum which was built during the Japanese colonial era. The Tudor-style building has a brick and wood facade and black tile roofing. The 1st level consists of a small bath and a large bath with a piece of Hokutolite Stone weighing 800 kilograms displayed at a corner. This is the perfect location to learn more about Beitou's rich hot spring culture and history. The next stop is Yangmingshan Flower Clock, the centerpiece of the Yangmingshan National Park. See the flowering plants which change by the seasons, where visitors can enjoy the bloom all year round. Visit Yangming Shu-Wu Mansion, also known as Zhongxing Guesthouse, which was the summer residence of the late president, Chiang Kai-shek. Today the mansion is an important site for Taiwanese culture and history. Afterward, you will visit the most popular spot in the national park, Xiaoyoukeng, which literally means "little oil pit". This is a post-volcanic geological area, where you can see and smell the steam rising from the ground, and feel the heat of a dormant volcano. See Qingtiangang, a lava terrace formed when the lava flowed north after the eruption.  The last stop is Lengshuikeng, which means “cold water pit”. This is a barrier lake formed by the volcanic lava flowing down from the mountain. The hot spring water here is colder than the other areas hence its name. Before the tour comes to the end, enjoy a hot spring foot bath that gives relief to aching feet and helps release tension in the muscles. After the tour, you may choose to disembark at MRT Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station or Shihlin Night Market and enjoy the local street foods.

Our guide and driver was Hicks and he is amazing. He is on time, very patient, takes awesome photos, drives well (really rad driving skills), has great energy and attitude, did his planning for all the places we wanted to visit. He facilitated our entire day to make sure it went smoothly and got us to all the places of interest before the sun set. A whole day of driving and hiking did not faze him and I think we were more tired than he was, somehow. Definitely will recommend him to my friends and family when they visit Taipei.

We had an amazing day with our guide, Jimmy Lin. He was well-informed and very passionate about his job. He told us he wanted to treat us like VIPs, and he did. He gave great advice about Taipei and other aspects of our trips. He gave us a wealth of information, but also allowed us to explore on our own. This tour allowed us to see so many different sights in a day. If we had been by ourselves, we never would have been able to access so many areas. It was an amazing day!

Caleb was a fantastic and thoughtful guide who tailored the trip to our interests. We told him we love eating most of all and he stopped in "tofu" Street for us on the way back to taipei, which was delightful.

Jack was a great tour guide. He took what I was interested in seeing and customized a full and fantastic day outside of and within the city.

Our Tourist Guide James—- was a Great Tourist Guide— 2 thumbs up❣️
