2014/11/06 Taiwan Day 13: Beitou and Tamsui near Taipei
π 2014-11-06 00:00 in Taiwan2014, Trips

That morning, we took the train to Xinebeitou, a nearby semi volcanic town with hot springs. When the Japanese invaded taiwan, they built onsens then (public baths using hot springs water), which are now enjoyed by the Taiwanese too.

After the onsen museum, we went through one of the many onsens there, and we got a foot bath there:

Once done with Beitou, we went back to Tamsui where we were staying. Tamsui is a port that belonged to several countries over the years due to old treaties and was only given back to Taiwan in 1980. As a result, there are several forts from the wars over time (Spanish, Dutch, French, Japanese) as well as foreign influence.






After we were done with the local sights, we went to the harbour to see a very nice reverse sunset:








After that, I was able to find a yummy restaurant which probably wasn't Taiwanese, but had yummy food which I enjoyed without being worried :)



We finished our evening by walking down the main street and checking out a nice temple there:





We then went back to our room for the evening.
