These natural hot springs are relaxing and also believed to cure aches and pains. You could take your shoes off at any time and wade in!


Make Taiwanese friends

This isn’t exactly commonplace advice, but Taiwanese people are known for their friendly nature and kind hospitality, and they’re great friends to be with. And when we say friends, we don’t mean adding them on Facebook and forgetting all about them.

Exchange contacts, keep in touch, and the next time you’re in Taiwan, you’ll have someone bring you around to the latest and most “worth it” places to eat and shop, and to meet their friends too. Some might even get you to forego hotels and just stay at their homes.

Of course, do the same when they come to Singapore and we dare say you have made a friend for life.
