I went to the waterfall as part of a tour to learn about indigenous peoples of Taiwan. It was a nice respite from the city, although it offered no escape from heat and humidity! We took the Wulai Scenic Tourist Train, a creaky, little former logging or coal train--depending on who you ask) from the lower parking lot. You can... More

There's not a lot of water and it's not particularly spectacular. But it's fine to come if you'd spend a night at a hot spring hotel. The tiny train ride is expensive and you may hike up here (about 20 mins) instead.

I loved the beautiful scenery and the tasty local food. And the hot spring was awesome. Some of the small hotels provide in-room hot spring but you can also try those outdoor ones.

The falls in Wulai is not very exciting, but still something to do in the sleepy old town. However to get to the falls is exciting. We walked up the serpentine road to the cable car (the very old cable car that is). The cable car takes you up to a pretty boring place but the cable car ride itself... More

Wulai is a great day trip from Taipei that lets you experience a very pleasant and scenic natural attraction. The town itself is small, and you will see the popular hot spring wading and soaking area across the river as you alight from the bus into Wulai. Venture through Wulai Old Street, which is lined with souvenirs and food, and... More

Well worth a visit. On weekend or holidays take the bus from Taipei Main Station. Otherwise it is very hard to get a seat if you take the same bus from Xindian station. Better to take a taxi there either from your hotel or from Xindian station. Lots of food variety in Wulai old street. The choices are actually very... More

Easy to get to Wulai by bus from Xindian MRT Station in Taipei, about 30-40 minutes on the bus, and very inexpensive. Bus drops you off near the Visitor Information Center, very helpful staff there with maps available. The village near the bus stop/carpark has a number of restaurants and street food stalls worth checking out. Across the river are... More

Waterfall is nothing much. Not really majestic or stunning. Great place to stay overnight. 1 night is enough in a hot spring hotel where you can have in-room hot tub or public hot pool. Trying soaking your feet on the river water - icy cold. But do know how the dam siren sounds like. cos the dam may open/close. Folks... More

The trip to Wulai is worth it. Although the guidebook said it was a 90 minute bus ride from the train station, it's about 30 minutes. I visited this location in the summer as well as the winter. Having seen the waterfall once, it wasn't impressive enough to require a second short walk. Instead, what I like the most is... More
