This adults-only hot springs has become very popular with local gay men including many good-looking, friendly guys and plenty of bears.

Huang Ding features a number of hot pools, set at various temperatures. There is a dark steam room where most of the action takes place.

The changing room is a bit of a squeeze, and on busy nights you might struggle to find an empty locker. There is only one toilet. Entrance fee 250 NTD for the public facilities. –Thanks to Pakchuang

  1. Amazing place, a must visit for Taipei

    “Had a great time here on a weekday afternoon. Easily accessible by public transport (frequent buses).

    OK, it is not "gay" per se, but the clientele is 99% gay. They have converted the women's baths, and combined it to make the men's baths larger. They do not offer public bath for women anymore, unlike all the other hot springs in the area.

    The dark steam room right at the very back is certainly very happening. Lots of fun and groping going on there.

    Certainly different to visiting a gay sauna, but no less fun (unless you are intent on f**king, cos there is no room to do that)“

  2. Good, if you have realistic expectations

    “Went on a summer Sat afternoon, was there from 4-6pm or so. Total about 30 guys, fairly broad range of ages and body types. Me and 2 other Caucasians, rest were Asian. Very discreet atmosphere, and could easily be mistaken for a straight hot springs.

    The only action is in the dark steam room all the way at the back. But don't expect too much. Once you overcome the inherent shyness, you face the problem of the overbearing heat. I think they crank up the heat and steam to ensure no one stays in the room for too long. Just too hot!! Had to take a break and use the cold water spray in the room, but managed to have some quick fun there.

    But there seemed to be a decent range, so if you're patient, flexible an don't have too high of expectations you should be able to enjoy your visit here. Even if you don't get any action, the view is always nice, and the water is good and you will be refreshed from the experience.“

  3. A bright & dark steam room exist ;)

    “Some reviewers apparently didn't find the dark steam room - it's at the end of the somewhat dark alley with lots of benches and chairs to relax, just before you reach the massage area. There is another steam room with an all glass front that is appropriately bright during day time and hence not the preferred dwelling place of, uh, shy guys... ;)

    It seems that the visitors are younger and cruisier later at night. The wide range of rest places make it pleasant to take in the eye candy and to wait for a flirt to develop.“

  4. Relaxing but don't go for any action

    “The description needs to be changed "There is no dark steam room anymore. It's glass. So no action takes place". Having said that I really enjoyed the atmosphere. There's not many places you can go where everyone is walking around completely naked. It's fun just to look. For sure 99% visitors are gay but as others have said - it is not a gay owned/run venue and it is not the place to go if you're looking for sex.

    It's not that difficult to find. Easy to take the Metro to the nearest station and then hop in a taxi for 140 TWD. But sure it is not in the downtown Redhouse district so if you're short on time it may not be worth while“

  5. Too far and confusing

    “Nothing special there besides a hot bath, but it's so hard to get there. It's not worth that much of a huddle... oh and no fun, go to Aniki instead for that“

  6. Crazy Crowd

    “I went with my BF (I am a white bear and he a Taiwanese) twink. First off it was crazy crowded. We had to wait 15 minutes for our number to be called to go in the dressing room. Don't wear socks. The lockers are super crowded and difficult to use.. The facilities on the other had were vast. There are three totally different areas of springs and pools and you cannot see them from the others. You must go exploring. The steam room was a joke because it was so full of guys giving handjobs. Head that you couldn't even get in or move. It was almost all gay guys there and it seems to be the Betiou place to be, but there is no action really. And it is not officially gay. It's a straight business take over by the gays. There is a woman's sauna on the other side. Fun on a cold rainy night or before clubbing, but if sex is what u want, go to Aniki or Rainbow or Grindr.“

  7. Not for Western gay audience

    “There is a better experience for that in Taipei Aniki for that. Or go to Kawayu Hot Spring instead. This is not a gay place and you should seriously not waste your time going on that mountain.“

  8. This is NOT a gay place!

    “I have been there yesterday. It's a totally normal on send run by a family. I couldn't find no signs of "gay lifestyle".
    There were few Asians who looked in my direction. But I'm a European in an onsen... that's all.
    There is no action, no place for action. The steam room is more a small cabin then a room.

    I wouldn't go there a second time if I need action. A sauna would be better.“

  9. Best gay Asian experience

    “The hotspring is absolutely gorgeous, the scene that you think can also been seen in an award winning gay film turns into a reality here. Guys all of ages and sizes come here to see and be seen. Facilities are very clean and there are multiple pools to choose from. The steam room is where all the action goes on, there is really no need to be discreet as this is not a gay~friendly hotspring but it is a pure gay hotspring. If you love seeing fully naked beautiful guys around you, this is a place you shouldn't think about skipping. Even the gay saunas can't match the crowd here and I am referring to both the quality and quantity of guys.“
