I went there in October near Halloween week. They decoated this place to Halloween theme. I m from country that doesn t have Halloween so this place is interested to me. Order food here is a bit difficult. Restaurant can t communicate in English and no English menu.

Was happy to see a mini Japanese village in Taiwan. Took a lot of nice souvenir shots around the area. Souvenir shops and fruit stands are also available.

Family visit.The scale is smaller then expected. Setup with monster theme odd things here and there. Many shops, eateries, souvenirs to buy. 2-3 hours is enough in this place.

The Monster Village is small. It takes only 1-2 hours to finish seeing the area. There are many selling food items worth trying

A lot of shops selling food and souvenirs. Not very big area and hence not many places for phototaking. But since there is no entrance fee, hence can consider to go if you have a lot of time to spare to try the different food there.

This is quite a fun place. Don't expect much, then you'll have fun. If you come from Sun Moon Lake, I recommend you visit the nearby forest area (<100m from the monster village, NTD200) to make your trip worth while( NTD300 Nantau 1-day pass from Sun Moon Lake)

Monster activities. Very nice location and many attractions. Food in some of the restaurants could be more authentic.

I had no idea what this monster village was about when friends asked us to come along. So we drove more than 2 hours and arrived in a very crowded tourist spot where people standing around eating and buying useless souvenirs. I didn't get the appeal this monster village has that so many people travel here. There is not much... More
