Yangmingshan National Park and Hot-Spring Half-Day Tour from Taipei
This is a typical itinerary for this product
Stop At: Yangmingshan National Park, Jhuzihhu Rd, Beitou District, Taipei 112 Taiwan
Yangmingshan, the mountainous area north of Taipei City, is famous for its beautiful scenery with traces of volcanic activities and abundant natural resources. Yangmingshan National Park is Taiwan’s third national park and the one closest to a major city. All year round, Yangmingshan has attractions to offer- flowers in spring, beautiful sky in summer, fruits and maple leaves in autumn, as well as hot-spring bathing and snow in winter.
The Flower Clock is the characteristic of Yangming Park. Water runs around the flower clock and music is played every hour.
Duration: 50 minutes
Stop At: Siaoyoukeng Recreation Area, No. 69, Zhuzihu Rd., Beitou Dist., Taipei Taiwan
A post-volcanic geological landscape area and is located on Mt. Qixing's northwestern foot. The scenic trail can be reached by turning right on the Xiaoguanyin stop on Yangjin Highway. It is famed for the fumaroles, sulfur crystals, hot springs and spectacular 'landslide terrain' formed by post-volcanic activity.
Duration: 30 minutes
Stop At: Lengshuikeng Hot Springs, Shilin District, Taipei City, Taiwan 111
A low-lying depression which was created when the lava from Mt. Qixing and Mt. Qigu formed a barrage. Water then accumulated, turning the area into a lake, which eventually leaked out and dried up to expose the lake bottom and form today's landscape. The water temperature of the hot springs in this area only reaches 40°C (104°F), far below that of other springs in other areas, hence its name Lengshuikeng, which means "cold water pit".

We were not satisfied with this tour, the original hotspring we were supposed to go was closed we had to go to an alternative one which was not up to standard. The cost for the tour was not value for money.
I enjoyed the tour, especially Yangming Park, the Hot Springs and bath. It was nice to have the relaxed time soaking all the aches and pains at the end of the tour!
A small park worth to see if you want to kill some time. There is nothing much to see there though.
Though the tour was nice, I was disappointed not to see all the wonders of the park. we had a short walk at a garden near the summer house of Chang Kai-Shek, nothing special to see. Looking at pictures of the PARK there should be amazing flowers this time of the year. However, our guide, Jacky Chan was very positive and nice and the visit at the hot springs and the Japanese Spa was relaxing and fun. If you are looking to see the nature in the park, its better to take public transportation and tour the park by your self
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.
Could have been better in terms of spending more time at the park instead of just 20mins.
