The area
Neighborhood: Tamsui / Bali District
The enchanting Tamsui Old Street boasts the most beautiful Fisherman’s Wharf sunset of Taiwan. There are also well-complimented delectable snacks such as Ah Gei (bean curd) and fish ball, etc. On Bali left bank, there is the Ferry Old Street and Wazihwei Nature Reserve. It is relaxing and comfortable whether by strolling or cruising through on a bike. Besides the bustling business district, Tamsui is also full of an old vintage flavor. From western architectural relics to residences dating back to Japanese rule, each with their respective features and great stories to tell. If you visit Tamsui in spring, the magnificent cherry blossoms of Tianyuan Palace are a must see. If you wish for further intimacy with nature, why not camp out for the night under the starry sky. The Bali culture park camping site offers round, transparent bubble tents. Experience the close, seamless connection to surrounding nature from within for an unforgettable memory.

Not fun as expected
Jul 2016 • Family
Quite pricy the entrance fees, it was a Wednesday, the whole chocolate wonderland only three families.

Not much of experiencing activities, DIY is kind of simple and not really fun activity.

Overall if you are there for this chocolate wonderland is not worth your trip

Unique attraction for chocolate lovers
Mar 2016 • Family
We brought our kids there as it was recommended by locals. For $1040 for 2 kids and 2 adults, it initially seemed like a bit of a cash grab. Once inside, we were instantly impressed. The main floor is a chocolate museum with various rooms showing everything from fairytale stories to fashion, entirely made of chocolate! Upstairs there is a DIY activity (for an extra fee), where you can decorate your own cookie or chocolate. You get to sample some of the chocolates they have for sale in the gift area (wasabi white chocolate was quite nice). Plus, they have little extras that the kids went nuts over: you get a little cardboard suitcase with 3 chocolate coins. You can redeem a coin for one of their activities (included with admission) such as chocolate dipped marshmallow candies. (You dip), spicy Mayan hot chocolate, or postcard. A true fantasy land, which we were surprisingly impressed. My 6 year old daughter cried when it was time to leave.

Just an exhibit of info- not worth going or paying for.......
Dec 2015 • Family
This attraction is a total disappointment.

We were expecting this to be an interesting chocolate factory concept - churning out wonderful types of chocolates.

But no. It is basically just an exhibition displaying information about chocolates With a souvenir shop & small café.

Boring & certainly a waste of long travelling time( quite far off) and money ( entrance fee).

Better spend your precious holiday time somewhere else if you have a choice.

I have been to better Chocolate Wonderlands
Nov 2015 • Friends
Sorry people. This "Wonderland" is a downer. Nothing spectacular AT ALL. Hokkaido's Koibito Park is WAY better.
It is just an ordinary shop selling chocolates, with SOME (small) unique chocolatey designs, but nothing of which you would wow at, or mouth water.

If you are going just for this, THINK AGAIN! Morever, it is like tucked away in a non conspicuous part of the Hotel.

Sorry. A marginal thumbs down. It is not lousy, but simply...no big deal (at all!)

Romantic getaway in Tamsui
Nov 2015 • Couples
One of the few things that could be done in Tamsui in poor weather was the chocolate attraction they have there. Fortunately there was no one but ourselves venturing into this attraction. The costing is about $280 NTD per person, although there is student concession for those with ID.

The attraction itself takes roughly 30 minutes. Inside the grand entrance, we were greeted by friendly reception staff who seemed very bored by their work but compelled to be lively. They talked is through what we would expect and what additional activities there were. We were also given a box consisting of three golden chocolate coins and chocolate vouchers to use at the souvenir/gift store.

Inside, there is a massive 2000kg car made entirely of chocolate on display as the centrepiece. Throughout the other exhibition are smaller displays made of chocolates, and then there are additional interactive components where you can swap the gold coins given to a shot of spicy chocolate, a postcard, and tasting of chocolate fondue. There is also a touch screen to earn more chocolate coins.

Upstairs, there is a chocolate decorating workshop that you need to pay additionally for, the amount varies with what you make, a cinema to show the collecting of cocoa beans, another interactive display to create an "e-cupcake" to send to your friends.

Prior to exiting there are a few souvenir shops consisting of chocolates, cupcakes, stationaries and cafe shop.

Overall this attraction is an okay one, probably suitable for young kids and chocolate lovers. The pricing is a little steep, however, it was an enjoyable attraction.

Don't go out of your way
Oct 2015 • Couples
The only "wonder" part of the World Chocolate Wonderland that I was left with was wondering why I paid $NT280 to get in. This experience was certainly not worth that and it certainly isn't worth the hour-long trip from central Taipei. I was expecting some chocolate samples or seeing more of an example of the process of how chocolate was made. Instead, there were some very minimal tastings and a lot of poorly done chocolate art. A waste of time and money.

A very surprising "cool" place to visit - especially for chocolate lovers!
Jun 2015 • Family
After walking across the Lovers Bridge we were heading back to the bus but ran across World Chocolate Wonderland, so since it was so hot and humid, we decided to go in and check it out - we are so glad we did. For a nominal price you get to see how chocolate is made and so many different items made out of chocolate. A great place for the family of all ages and many things to take pictures of and with. You even get some chocolate coins which you can trade for a chocolate covered marshmallow which you make yourself, or a post card you can send to yourself. It even has a very good replica of the Jadeite Cabbage and "Meat-Shaped" Stone (aka Pork Belly) that are on display the National Palace Museum. You can easily spend 1-2 hours looking at all the neat items. The best thing for us was that it was nice to get out of the hot weather! A must see while in Danshui!
