251 Guangming Rd., Beitou, Taipei, Taiwan
Located at the northern end of Taipei, Beitou is a hot spring town with the historical feel of Taiwan. Yangming Mountain Park and Guandu Scenic Area are nearby. The name Beitou is very interesting. According to legend, the early Basai people thought that the geothermal valley smoked because of a witch’s spell. The witch’s name was PATAW in the local language, which sounds very similar to the Taiwanese pronunciation of Beitou.
