TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Hot spring season has kicked off at Sichongxi Hot Springs Park in Pingtung County's Checheng Township and will last from now until Feb. 9, 2020.

The Pingtung County Government, which organized the event, has decorated Sichongxi Hot Springs Park with red maple leaves and maple leaf-shaped lights, CNA reported on Saturday. Pingtung County Commissioner Pan Men-an (潘孟安) said that the park boasts a Japanese atmosphere, with popular traditional Japanese ballads being played on the PA system.

The commissioner added that the park is situated in a mountainous area, while Syuhai Hot Springs Area in Manzhou Township on the other side of County Route 199 is located near the sea. He recommended that visitors to Sichongxi, which is known for its carbonated water, also visit Syuhai to enjoy hot springs in two different geological settings, the news agency reported.

Chang Zheng-sheng (張正昇), an official of a local tourism development association, told CNA that there are Japanese-style bathrobes for rent at the Sichongxi venue for visitors to wear for photoshoots.    [FULL  STORY]
