Su’ao Cold Spring is the only calcium bicarbonate spring in Taiwan. The spring temperature is about 22°C. As the insects, fish and shrimp that accidentally enter the spring will be unable to survive due to its rich CO2 content, the spring was once regarded as poisonous. It was not until the Japanese Colonial Period when the Japanese soldier Takenaka Shinkage discovered the spring to be crystal clear and sweet after tasting it, that people realized the benefits of this spring.
On the hot summer day, scooping the spring water up and watching the water splashing through the air will eliminate your summer heat instantly; or lie in the cold spring like an elegant fish and let it cool your body and mind. The charm of Su’ao Cold Spring is truly irresistible.
The old-school marble soda and the sweet yokan are famous local products, and were made with Su’ao Cold Spring water in the early days. Now, the marble soda has entered history, while the yokan has become the number one gift of Su’ao and the pride of Su’ao. When you come to Su’ao, don’t forget to try the sweet yokan; it will fill your heart with happiness.
