Still worth a visit, although you now have to take a longer route which is about 45-60 min uphill. When walking out of the 7/11, take a left (uphill) then follow that... read more

How about to take a morning bus from Taipei General Station to Wu-lai and start to walk from the bus station to the waterfall and try to take a mini coal mine train back to the town street. Pick one of the hot-spring bath spot for an easy half an hour dip and then try to local fresh-grew vege and... More

We visited on November 9th 2015. The waterfall is very nice and is open for viewing. To get there take the bus # 849 from the end of the MRT Green Line - Xindian Station. Exit the station to the right and turn left to the first bus stop. The last stop for the bus is Wulai. Exit the bus... More

An attraction that does not try too hard to impress. Just being near it brings you a peace of mind. I can't imagine water from the waterfall is hot and I would love to join the locals in the public for a hot spring bath. The locals have lived here long before Chinese arrived. I can see why they never... More

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
