I love to learn different cultures of different countries. We learned a lot the modern side of Taiwan but don't really know the history or culture from the aborigine of Taiwan, often I only heard about Alishan but there are many tribes in Taiwan. Formosan Culture Village have built up the model houses and showing the lifestyle of 9 tribes... More

Very interesting and educational, particularly the museum (free of charge), even for adults. When you buy ticket to cable car, you should get the combo ticket that allows you to visit the Village and the Amusement Park, using the cable car for both stages - it's cheaper than buying separately or when you arrive at the first cable car station....

This place is great, you will enjoy the rides in the theme park at the same time travel back from their rich culture.. When you visit this place, I suggest you should try the Mayan Adventure (roller coaster) and UFO (free fall) breathless, I can say! And of course for the full experience go for the cable car.

We spent 3hrs in the park mainly at the aboriginal cultural park area as were wanted to learn about the indigenous people culture and practices. From the entertaining song and dance, to the well narrated artifacts in each tribal hut, to the well manicured grounds lined with statutes depicting tribal lifestyle and ways, it was an enjoyable experience. Only advice... More

I was not very interested in seeing another cultural village after seeing so many over the years but I must say that this was well presented, clean and engaging. A must-see for those visiting the area.

Went there during the hottest time of the year in Taiwan. But it's pretty shady so the heat is not too bad. People there weren't as many as i expected, therefore spacious and the queue moved fast enough. Interesting to see how the aboriginal tribes lived. Fed the Kois which was surprisingly fun. Theme park games are mainly for kids... More

Interesting place, with different zones for each of Taiwan's indigenous peoples. For each one, there is an example of village buildings, and there are also shows and a chance to try games etc

We went with the intention of looking at cherry blossoms trees which we managed to see a few but it was nearly end of the season hence not as pretty as we expected. The theme park is designed for children so adults might find it boring unless there's specific things you want to see. Our tickets came free with our... More

Theme park with rides and zones of aboriginal showcase of the different tribes. Much better maintained than Leofoo Village Theme Park. There is a big European style garden right in front of the entrance to the theme park. There is a ropeway (cable car) to go up the mountains and switch to another ropeway (with additional charges) to go to... More
