WELLNESS

Taiwan offers plenty of therapeutic, feel-good experiences to weary travelers. Natural hot springs are available tip-to-toe on the island, inviting you to relax in cozy cedar-lined luxury or in open air in the mountains. Alternatively, you can splurge on an elegant Western-style spa in a five-star hotel. Foot and body massages are extremely popular, as are ancient practices like skin scraping and cupping. Such traditional therapies are much sought after by locals and expats alike, as remedies and sometimes simply as a cultural experience.
