Wulai is a picturesque town in the south of Taipei. All the expats know it! It's a good place to chill out, enjoying hot springs, natural scenery and swimming in the nearby stream. There are many souvenir shops and several hotels.

The hot spring water is clear and has no sulphuric smell. However, establishment is old and does not give a relaxing feel. Though prices are reasonable. Will prefer a newer and posh spa resort.

You get some nice food, an aboriginal museum, a rejuvenating bath, nice views of the river and a lovely waterfall. Far enough from the city life in Taipei but near enough for a day trip.

Not far from busy Taipei and a short bus ride up to Wulai from the last MRT stop of Xinding, we arrived at a quaint village. It's already a known tourist spot but it somehow kept its aboriginal roots. There is only one main road...More

The Bitan Scenic Area with its beautiful mountains and
rivers was one of the eight sceneries of Taiwan
earlier on and was reputed as the “little red cliff”
due to its steep cliffs on the west bank. If you enjoy
wandering through this area by bike, there are well
established surrounding riverside cycling paths. One
may also boat on Bitan in paddle boats which are also
quite pleasant. If you are tired and would like to
