Attractions in Taipei
Xinbeitou Hot Springs
Hot springs in Xinbeitou with high temperature and many sources are caused by the
terrestrial heat of Datun Mountains. Thermal valley is one of the earliest hot spring sources
found in Taiwan.
Lungshan Temple
The Lungshan Temple houses hundreds of statues of Buddhist, Taoist, and Confucian
deities. The temple mixes traditional Chinese siheyuan (“four-building courtyard”) with
palace architecture in its design. Paintings of vivid creatures grace the temple walls, and
stone statues of mystical creatures guard the temple grounds.
