To me, it feels like a theme park but where generations of REAL people live. We took the bus up to Wulai, which took us approximately 40 minutes, up a winding road to the foot of the village. 5 minutes up hill walk to the old street peppered with food stores and hot spring spas. They also have a museum... More

This village is an easy day trip from Taipei. I had some good street market food. They had some roast suckling pig which was very tasty. The waterfalls were beautiful. The little train was fun to ride. I got to swim in the river in the afternoon. It was very refreshing. I suggest you take the time to visit Wulai.

Tbh we were daunted by the trip, cos we didn't know if it was going to be worth travelling for past an hour frm taipei city to wulai. But we were so glad that we did it, cos this plc is an eye opener. The ride on the electric train is a must try. The visit to the museum will... More

It was a very nice place for weekend get away type of thing. The particular thing is the little train ride. The feeling is like riding on disney's wide wild west ride, but it's way much cheaper. $1.5 one way. Also there are cable cars can take tourists to the top of the mountain. Also, hot springs either indoor and... More

Wulai is away from the city bust. Love the veg there. Cant get such veg in Singapore. Being city folks n living in Singapore where there is little natural resources (even water we have to buy from Msia), we were fascinated by the hot spring water from the ground. It's just there n ppl only need to remove the stones... More

烏來's hot springs are colorless and odorless - excellent for people not used to the sulfuric smell of the Beitou hot springs. The gondola trip to the top of the mountain didn't feel safe, but was more than made up for by the spectacular views from the top. Unfortunately, the "theme park" at the top has long since been shut... More

Needed: Adventurous spirit. Early morning motor bike ride to Wulai. (40 mins from Xindian MRT Station). Water and food for a long, hard run. Directions: Go through Wulai, past the waterfall, through the first tunnel. Just after the second overhead protection tunnel is a rest area. Park you bike. Run 6km to Lane 120. This is where then adventure begins.... More

By taking bus or driving, Wulai is very easy to assess. Walking along the old streets, having delicious foods, taking hot springs... It is great relaxation after hard working!

This was a fun day trip. The beauty was something I did not expect. The old street is fairly short and packed with food vendors. After walking through the old street you can head up to the waterfall by walking or train. It's about a 20 minute walk, paved the whole way. Great little town about top as well. You... More

Interesting town in the outskirts of Taipei. You can opt to make a day trip or choose to stay one night here if you have the time. We booked a room at a small inn, 烏來51溫泉會館 (51 Hot Spring Resort Wulai). It is located at the end of the old street, about 15min walk from the bus drop off point.... More
