A suburb of Taipei, Peitou (also spelled Beitou) is located 45 minutes by pleasant car ride from the international airport. Landscape worthy of a Chinese scroll painting unfurls on the approach up Yangming Mountain, a dormant volcano known for its sulfur fissures and natural springs. Once limited to unappealing concrete compounds featuring bar hostesses, Peitou now offers a new generation of mountainside hot-spring spas that attract an international clientele.
