Located around 1,640 feet (500 metres) north of Jiaoxi Railway Station, Jiaoxi Hot Spring Park was formerly Yuanshan Park. This small park has been around since the era of Japanese rule. The public bathhouse left by the Japanese has been redesigned as a Japanese-style hot spring pool where you can enjoy a free foot bath. The hot spring is a weakly alkaline sodium bicarbonate spring with a temperature of around 50 °C, making it a very popular “beauty bath” with young women. Follow the trail next to the bamboo forest, and you’ll reach a forest bathhouse with red lanterns and a fantastic view. For just a small entrance fee you can enjoy unlimited forest bathing. There are gender-separated baths for nude bathing. There’s also an open-air performance stage, an outdoor café, singers from time to time, occasional group performances and various themed events every autumn and winter, making it a great place for relaxation with friends and family.
