During the Japanese Occupation, there were already bathing pools. These facilities came under the government jurisdiction after restoration and were opened to public. Gradually, Dungpu becomes known for its fantastic hot springs.The hot spring source is at the eastern foothill of Wan Village, about half an hour walk from the Bus Terminal.
