There were five all toghter, so very manageable. it was a great opportunity to see anothr, totally different part of Taiwan--this one is much more tropical and unexpected.... More

If you have the time whilst in Taipei take the bus to Wulai Falls. You can either walk or take a mini train to the falls, we recommend the walk and if need be take the train back, but it is not very far and an easy walk. It also has some interesting little shops but do bargain as the... More

This town (and it's wonders) are easy and cheap to reach by public transit out of Taipei. The falls are lovely, the shrines, ample food and kid-friendly activities (mini railroad and gondola across the gorge). Do NOT miss out on the expansive hotel/playground/walking trails etc at the top of the gondola! Amazing views, lots to look at (including a hokey... More

We went there on a bit cool day just a week ago and it was pretty damn cool there, lot of small shops sells souvenirs and Taiwan style food. This place is surrounded by mountains and water falls looks very beautiful but better visit on Hot day. MRT Xindian is the only nearest MRT station followed by bus.

To be reach by taking mrt to xindian the change to bus 849. After walking through the old street and hot spring boutiques, you will find a more steep walk up to the waterfall. You can also reach the waterfall by taking the old style tram.

Nice place to go to with beautiful scenery. To get there, just get to Xindian station and from there take a bus just outside the station. (Bus 849). Alternatively, you can take a taxi up which cost NTD 600 which is a fixed price as per the sign board just outside and near the bus stop where 849 is. Was... More

Visited on a Tuesday and the temperature was actually around 14degrees. Very cold day and maybe that's why there were fewer tourists and more locals, but I'm not complaining. Had a meal at the local restuarant, mountain greens, bolied chicken in sauce (cold), stir fry wild boar meat, stir fry mushrooms, pearl spring onions and bamboo shoots. The bill came... More
