Taiwan Day 6 : Yang Ming Shan 陽明山 + Fisherman Wharf 淡水漁人碼頭 + Day 7 : How Sweet Bakery

7D Taiwan trip December 2012 : Kaohsiung + Taipei

First stop - Yang Ming Shan Tien Lai Resort & Spa 陽明山天籟渡假酒店

Hot spring is always on my winter-must-do list in Taiwan. Finally I have a chance to experience hot spring! ^.^
No photo taking within the hot spring area so have to grab these photo from the main website. 

Yang ming shan is famous for hot spring spa. When I was on the bus, I saw many elderly are heading same direction as me. I guess it is also quite a elderly sport during winter or oh yes the hiking as well! 

We headed to this highly raved Tien Lai resort & spa which is the largest bubbling spring paradise in northern Taiwan. There are basically split into two kind of hot spring spa - Blossom theme and SPA impact. Pay one money and enjoy two types of hot spring? Where to find such a good deal?
