It was not easy finding all the information about Jiaoxi, so I had to do some google search online and this is what you need to know.

If you are looking for the free hot spring where you can soak your feet in, it is the plaza right behind the Jiaoxi bus station, inside of Jiaoxi hot spring park. There are different temperatures and the one you don’t see anyone using is extremely hot so be careful. But it is clean and well maintained, be sure to wash your feet before dipping your feet in.

Now if you are looking for the Japanese bathhouse where you bath nude, it is called Jiaoxi Hot Spring Park Forest Furo (Bath). You can find my review for that under Jiaoxi Hot Spring Park.

We did both and had lunch in that area. It was a lot of fun!

We (family of 4) visited the Jiaosi hot spring during our rent trip to Yilan County. We went there by private tour car. There is a section of the park where people can dip their feet into hot water with no charge. There is a section where you pay to go inside. It is separated by male/female and all nude. No swimming suits allowed. The water temperature was hot and varies from pool to pool. Lots of people in the pools when I was there. It was clean and everyone is respectful. I enjoyed my visit for a couple of hours.

Jiaoxi is a small town with nothing other than the best hot spring in Taiwan, and even the town is boring, the water helps breed the most beautiful women of the Formosan Island.

Jiaoxi is on the Eastern Coastal Line of Taiwan, and it used to be a major agricultural place with its clean water and flat land, but with the advent of the Snow Mountain Tunnel, it has turned into a weekend getaway for Taipei city dwellers.

Are you tired of all the rush in the city, and tired of all the stress you have accrued from work, or just want a nice place and time for yourselves?

Jiaoxi and its hot spring is the place to be.

The Forest Bath (Shenlin Fenglu 森林風呂) in Jioxi is one of the best, if not the best, public hot spring in the Taipei area. The bath complex is built in the middle of a beautiful garden, surrounded by large trees and ponds. The bath complex itself is separated by sex, and bathing in each section is in the nude. The men's section which I used has eight different pools with different temperatures, shapes and sizes, ranging from 37 degrees Celsius to over 40 degrees. One of the pools is shallow, but large enough for swimming. Most pools are outdoors, but some are indoors. The whole place is clean and beautiful.

Access is simple and easy. Take the bus from the Taipei City Hall bus station to Jiaoxi and get off at the bus station. The bus is extremely luxurious, with wide reclining seats, and fast - using several tunnels to cross the mountain range. Once at the bus station, climb the small hill above the station and continue along the garden path the the bath. On the way you will pass the local tourist office (no English spoken), a pond where you can soak your feet in hot spring water for free and a swimming pool. There is a second hot spring area, about a mile away, also in a nice garden, but the facilities there are older and less attractive, though cheaper.
