Tourist attractions[edit]

Jiaoxi is famous for its hot springs. These attract large numbers of visitors so as the result, Jiaoxi has become a favorite weekend resort, mostly people from Taipei, featuring an array of hotels from the budget to the luxurious. There is also a few free public hot springs, mostly sheltered, where visitors can enjoy a leisurely foot bath at any time.

In March 2012, it was named one of the Top 10 Small Tourist Towns by the Tourism Bureau of Taiwan.[2]
