北投位在台北市區的郊外。在這裡有一些地方可以泡溫泉。一個在公園的旁邊。它是免費的，然後有一些老人在那邊泡腳 。這裡的溫泉水是從山上流下來的，然後跟冰水混合。在那邊有三個池子是不一樣的溫度。我來的時候最高的溫度是47° 度左右。
Beitou lies on the outside of the city of Taipei. Here there are several hot springs you can visit. There is one free one next to the park where several older people like to soak. The water for this hot spring comes from the mountaintop and is then mixed with cool water. At this hot spring there are three pools with different temperatures. When I was there the hottest one was about 117 ° F.
There are wooden benches on the inside and middle of each pool for you to sit on and soak your feet. You can also walk around the inside of the pool if you want. Usually people soak, rest, and repeat. When resting, most people hit their legs to improve the circulation of that area. There is also a water station to get water because the hot spring makes you sweat a lot!
While we were there we met quite a few old ladies. They were all very warmhearted and helped us out a lot! They even told us where the pipes with hot water were so we didn’t burn ourselves.
Hell Valley or Thermal Valley is a very special place because there the water has green sulfur. Taiwan and Japan are the only places in the world that have it. But here you will only want to look and not bathe because the water is too hot with a temperature of 212°F! It’s pretty smelly there because of the sulfur, but it is a very beautiful place to see.
These are rumored to be the best ramen noodles in Beitou. Beitou’s buildings are mostly in the Japanese style of architecture because a long time ago it was settled by the Japanes
