Pei and I are looking forward to meeting you all so soon!
I went to check on the hot spring today that we’ll visit and was told by an employee that everyone entering the hot springs needs to wear tight-fitting swim suits. That means standard men’s board shorts aren’t permitted; instead, you’ll need to wear skin-tight swimwear (i.e. jammers, something akin to a speedo). If you don’t have anything like that, you’ll be able to purchase a cheap pair for about $5 USD at a night market in Taipei before the day we go to the hot springs.
Also, if Springside Chestnut Hill issues student ID cards, please bring them! We can get discounts at museums and other institutions when purchasing tickets if we have your student IDs.
Please feel free to post any questions you might have!
