Journey to Taipei with annual festive events

08-19-2010 11:08 BJT Special Report:Approaches to Taiwan |

The cultural kaleidoscope of Taiwan's capital city Taipei pulses wherever you go. Incense-veiled temples dating back to dynastic times blend seamlessly with a neoned street life of a more modern era to present a landscape of compelling contrasts.

Whether you're just stopping over en route to another Asian destination, or planning a longer stay, Taipei is a many-faceted treasure that will call you back again and again.

Taipei Hot Spring Season

Sponsored by the Taipei Hot Spring Association, the annual Taipei Hot Spring Season turns the spotlight on the many hot spring possibilities awaiting visitors to Taipei. The 2010 event will continue many of the activities from past years, including a hot spring travel exhibition, health expo, cultural tours, health workshops, and a Nakashi music contest.

There will also be a number of new additions, including health tourism services, an Asia-Pacific international hot spring symposium and exhibition, and the Old Beitou Hot Springs Food Festival. Fee Hot Spring Tourism brochures will also be available at MRT stations, visitor information centers, and the Beitou Hot Spring Museum to help you make the most of the event.

Location: Taipei City Beitou
