While living in Taiwan teaching English in 2013, my Mom came to visit me for two weeks. One of my fondest memories of her visit was when we traveled to Green Island, where we had the opportunity to sit and bathe in the Zhaori Salt Water Hot Springs (one of only three salt water hot springs in the world).
Each day while on Green Island we would hop on our rented scooter and feel the ocean breeze tingling our skin, as we rode around the Island (which only took about 45 minutes), eventually leading us to the Zhaori Salt Water hot springs. Before entering we would purchase a refreshing green tea and then make our way into this unbelievable sanctuary.
The Experience was like a Dream
It was an experience like no other. Each pool had a different view of the ocean with varying temperatures. Some of them were actually built into the sea rocks. As we went from one pool to the next the salt water tickled our faces. We happened to be there during the full moon. As it started to rise over the ocean we became mesmerized with the glistening moonlight reflecting on the South China Sea and then illuminating the salty hot pools where we were immersed. The sound of the waves crashing in the distance was all we could hear. To this day that experience feels like a dream, a memory far away that I will never forget.
