We really enjoyed our half day in Wulai - the public hot springs were great. The locals were friendly and explained us the bath etiquette. There is even a steam room. After getting steamed in it, it's such a bliss to jump into a cool river. The nearby waterfall was pretty impressive - the mountains were really pretty. Finally, the... More

A small town. we had great time in the old street, waterfall and the park at the top. Hot springs are the greatest attraction. I found them better then Beitou. The hotels are really nice and are great value. If you just want a private bath tub (with TV and a small sitting area and shower) you can soak in... More

Lovely nature place with different interesting spots: historical railed machine car, cable car to a lovely green garden and not to mention, the hot spring and Taiwan tribe Tanya. Must visit if you wanna have a taste of a different Taipei

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
