Description - What to expect

Start your Yangmingshan day trip early in the morning. Meet your tour guide and driver and then, take a 30-40 min ride to Yangmingshan National Park in Taipei. On your way, stop by Taipei Public Library Beitou Branch. Located in Beitou Park and near Beitou Hot Spring Museum, this beautiful library was selected by the travel website "When On Earth" as one of the 10 Coolest Examples of “Green Buildings”, and the famous online culture magazine "Flavorwire" as one of The 25 Most Beautiful Public Libraries in the World.

Beitou Hot Spring Museum was built during the Japanese colonial era. The Tudor-style building has a brick and wood facade and black tile roofing, the 1st level features a small bath and a large bath with a piece of Hokutolite Stone weighing 800 kilograms displayed in a corner. The 2nd level features a huge Tatami lobby and a balcony with a special exhibition area that has early Taiwanese film documents displayed. This is the perfect place to learn about Beitou's rich hot spring culture and history.

Your next stop is Yangmingshan Flower Clock, the centerpiece of the national park, near the bus station and visitor information center. The flower plants change by season and visitors can enjoy the bloom all year round. Then visit Yangming Shu-Wu Mansion, also known as Zhongxing Guesthouse, which is the summer residence of the late president Chiang Kai-shek for the reception of important foreign guests. Today the mansion has become an important site for Taiwan’s history and natural environment.

Continue your Yangmingshan day trip with a visit to the most popular spot in the national park, a post-volcanic geological landscape area, where you can see and smell the steam coming from the earth's cracks. Then visit Qingtiangang, a lava terrace formed when the lava flowed north after the eruption. The terrace was once a ranch for water buffalos grazing during the period under Japanese rule.

Your last stop in this Yangmingshan tour is Lengshuikeng, a barrier lake formed by volcanic lava flowing down from the mountain. The hot spring water is colder than the other areas (around 40 degrees Celsius) hence its name was given Lengshuikeng.

Before the Yangmingshan day trip comes to the end, you will enjoy a hot spring foot bath that gives relief to aching feet and release the tension in the muscle. After the tour, you may choose to disembark at Shihlin Night Market and enjoy the local street foods or go back to your hotel and rest.
