The locals sees Wulai as their back garden where they could get away from the hustle and bustle of Taipei. It is about an hour trip by public transport (mrt and train) or 30 minutes by taxi away from Taipei. Wulai is a place to visit if you like soaking in hotsprings or hot baths, and if you like soaking... More

Quite a rundown place. Boarding and abandoned damaged buildings aplenty. Restoration ongoing with Komatsu forklifts and whirring of generators. Mostly local tourists. Some visitors from Hongkong. Some interesting streetfood like the wild boar sausage.

My family and I paid $35 per pax and joined a local tour agency to tour Wu Lai and it was a great experience! We get to: • visit the aboriginal hunting school and had a chance of making our own bamboo rice, archery, own BBQ meal at outdoors with their traditional hot stone and making of our own tote...

Getting there is an easy trip by Metro and bus. The bus trip provides good opportunities to see the country outside Taipei. The centre of the village has the normal tourist shops and restaurants, but the real attraction is the spectacular waterfall reached by a walk of about 2km up the river valley.

The Wu Lai Waterfall stands at about 80m talls, looks majestic and beautiful. The Wu Lai Lao Jie (Wu Lai old street) had some stalls/eateries selling local produce e.g. vegetables that tasted quite nice, but overall, the main river was under construction. thus spoiling the entire view of the place. The push car train ride was out of service due... More

This is my second time visiting Taipei and my second time visiting Wu Lai. My first visit was incredibly fun, we took a public bus up from Xindian station. The public bus was abit scary because of the sharp turns uphill. Regardless, I arrived at the Wulai village safely for both times. I loved Wulai because of its heritage and... More

Nice getaway to the countryside. Definitely take the cable car up to the teahouse and beergarden near the archery and paintball ranges. Good food to be found from the local vendors. Unfortunately, not enough distance or elevation to escape the pollution of the city.

This place not much tourists, but nice place if you want to find a place to try their hotspring which no sulfur smell. But this place on the top of the mountain got a small town slighly like ghost city which a lot of shops close. On top of the mountain also got nice waterfall view. Can push baby stroller.

My wife and I recently visited this area for Valentine's Day. We had a lovely hot spring hotel room and an Aboriginal show included. There's a great Street to walk around lots of traditional local food.
