Very easy to go to via the metro and free shuttle bus from the bus station & a small train. The small street before the waterfall is lined with many food stalls selling many variety of local snacks like grilled sausages, pancakes etc. There is a row of shops selling the native souvenirs at the waterfall viewing area itself.

The waterfall is nothing special. The Shifen Waterfall is much more impressive. However, Wulai itself has a charming rustic feel to it. There are very few tourists there, unlike the other busy attractions. Hence, it is a nice place to view the scenery, breathe in some fresh air, and simply relax. We took the MRT to Xindian, then took the... More

1.8 km from the top of the town. Go to Helen Coffee and turn left and keep on walking. Very humid and slightly uphill but toilets on the way and a few benches. Quite impressive, not in terms of Niagara or anything, but very pleasant to view on a hot day. You wouldn't come here just to see the waterfall... More

Took a bus as recommended by other members here.. Fare is TW$30 each way if you do not have the fare card which I think gets you a cheaper fare. When we arrived I followed the crowd towards the old town before arriving at the tram station. I took the tram up to the falls and walked down. Tram ride... More

took a half-day to see Wu Lai. Easy to get to on the 849 bus from Xindian MRT station. Wu Lai old street has many food vendors--try the roast suckling pig (you won't miss the stand). Uphill walk to waterfall and gondola but worth it. there is a mini-tram available if you don't want to walk. The resort at the... More

It was a chore by itself getting there, taking train to the last stop in the south before changing to a jam packed bus which winded through mountain roads for more than an hour. There are only a few seats so we had to stand, and that was really bad. Once we reached it wasnt that bad, great shopping street... More

This quaint little town/street on the outskirts of Taipei is famous for its springs, food influenced by aboriginal culture, waterfalls and beautiful scenery. But |I didn't expect that it would turn out such a nice and beautiful location.| Lots of people were there so it means it is one of a loving tourist spot. I was so overwhelmed by the... More

I went with a group of friends (total of 9) so for me, the easiest was to take a taxi directly from city center to Wulai. If i remember correctly, it cost approx NT$1,200 and took around 30~45mins. As we had a group of 9, therefore its sensible to take taxi as it probably save at least 1hr of travelling... More

Look for the hot spring hotels toward your left, they have better views and rates. Try the bamboo rice, its delicious!
