For lovers who are dating and desire to spice up the relationship or married couples planning to rekindle their romance, 2014 Taiwan Hot Spring & Cuisine Carnival invites travelers to bring their loved ones to share a romantic getaway.
Hot springs can be found throughout Taiwan since the island has an unique crust structure that creates geothermal energy covering the entire island. With the exceptions of Yunlin County, Changhua County and Penghu, almost every county in Taiwan has traces of hot springs. It is definitely not an exaggeration to crown Taiwan as a hot spring kingdom. There are nearly 128 strongholds of hot springs discovered; most of them are 10 to 20 thousand years old while one or two of the youngest ones are at least thousands of years old.
Taiwan's geographic landforms are very special with 4 premium hot spring areas such as 1) North Taiwan: Beitou, Yangmingshan, Jinshan, Wulai, Qingquan, Jianshi and Jiaoxi hot springs. There is also Suao cold spring which is one of the only 3 cold springs remained in the world. Visitors can enjoy it in Taiwan without flying to Italy! 2) Central Taiwan: the famous Dongpu, Lushan, Tai'an and Guguan hot springs; 3) Southern Taiwan: Baolai, Bulao, Guanziling, and Sichongxi spring; 4) Eastern Taiwan: Zhiben, Green Island, and Ruisui hot spring etc.
Guanziling, Beitou, Yangmingshan and Sichongxi hot springs together are crowned the Top 4 Taiwan premium hot springs. Guanziling hot springs have been renowned as one of the eight wonders of Taiwan. Underneath the hot springs is argillaceous rock that gives the water a dark hue, so the hot springs are also referred as "mud springs" or "black hot springs". Beitou's hot springs, formed by volcanic rock layers from Mt. Shamao, Mt. Datun and Mt Qixing, are mostly rich in sulfur and have created the best geographic resource for hot spring resorts. The Sichongxi stream has crystal clear water that can be consumed or used as bathing water. It runs its own reputed medicinal and therapeutic effects since the Japanese colonial era. Yangmingshan hot springs are mainly on sulfur, which can increase the numbers of white blood cells, and soften skin keratinocytes.
There are some essential tips and steps before submerging oneself fully into the hot springs. First, take a “warm-up bath” and pour hot spring water from the legs and slowly work one's way up to the top. Shoulders and the whole body must be rinsed thoroughly with hot spring water. Next, rinse one's head with hot spring water especially when the hot spring water is in high temperatures. This “warm-up bath” during winter time is very important before soaking in the hot spring. It can help to prepare the body to prevent unbalanced blood flow to the brain. Finally, enter the hot spring pool at ease to warm up the entire body to the shoulders for a full body soak. This type of gradual submerging technique can effectively prevent any discomfort or dizziness.
