Visit volcanoes, hot springs and more throughout northern Taiwan, plus see one of the “greenest” buildings in Asia.
About Your Trip
Pack your camera and get ready for an exhilarating tour of the captivating countryside of northern Taiwan. Start your adventure at Yangmingshan National Park, known for its gorgeous cherry blossoms, abundant hot springs and Mt. Qixing, the nation’s tallest dormant volcano. At the foot of Qixing, visit Xiaoyoukeng, a post-volcanic terrain marked by smoking fumaroles and otherworldly sulfur crystal formations. Also stop at the park’s Lengshuikeng recreation area to see the milky white waters of the hot springs. The steaming wells are just as mesmerizing at Beitou Thermal Valley, where the waters have a rare, emerald green hue unique to only 2 hot springs in the world. After lunch, continue on to Beitou Library, one of the most eco-friendly, energy-efficient structures in East Asia.
What we love: • The now-verdant Lengshuikeng area was once the bed of a barrier lake formed by lava flows from the surrounding volcanoes. • Lengshuikeng features a foot-soaking pool with natural hot-spring waters where visitors can quickly revive their toes while exploring Yangmingshan. • Although it opened in 2006 and is otherwise a thoroughly modern building, Beitou Library is entirely made of wood to stay true to its “green” initiative.

Rich in Chinese and Japanese culture, and colored by indigenous diversity and Western influences, Taiwan is a fascinating country and a study in contrasts. While the country’s passion for its ancestry and heritage remains strong, the Taiwanese are a forward-thinking people, boasting top-notch public education, freedom of the press, accessible health care and more. And despite its small size, Taiwan plays a large high-tech role in the global economy as the producer of the majority of the world’s personal computers.
The capital of Taipei is the perfect jumping-off point for exploring the ruggedly beautiful scenery and ethnic diversity of the country, which features a vast array of natural and cultural discoveries that can be found nowhere else. Even more, politeness, honor and respect for elders is a prime concern in Taiwan, a courtesy which is also extended to its many visitors.
