It might be quite a quiet and slow pace place for some people. I didnt really like it because I felt out of place for once. It was a little too quiet for my liking maybe because I just came here from all the lively places like Ximending and Shilin.

Very relaxing trip, slow down your pace walk around the small town and up the hill, enjoy the scenery, quietness and the nature! Some area were destroyed due the last year landslide. But it is still safe and worth to make a trip there.

We took this tour with Taiwan Tour Bus tours. We would normally make our own way around but it has been raining each day we have been in Taiwan so we took this tour for convenience and to view some sights and culture of the area. We were picked up on time from our hotel and proceeded on the scenic... More

The typhoon damaged much of this area but you can still take the trail to the waterfall and get some nice views. I would skip this place if time is tight and save one more day for Yangmingshan, Elephant Mountain, or Maokong though. If time is not an issue, you can come here for a relaxing day trip.

Wulai is definitely a good place for a summer weekend to be close to the nature with friends, kids, or family. There are so many yummy food stall along the old street and also hotspring hotels alongside.

Easily accessible by bus, scooter or car. Cross the small bridge at the entrance of the Old Street & take the 1st left. Walk for 10 minutes. Go down the small flight of stairs on your left. This will take you to a decent swimming hole in the river. Cross the large bridge at the end of the old street.... More

During the bus ride to Wulai, one gets to enjoy scenic views of the valley and the surrounding hills. The old street is pretty ordinary but do try the bamboo rice and the boiled eggs for something different. The rail train to the gondola station was still being repaired so access is either via a taxi or an hour long... More
