Formosa Aboriginal Cultural Village has the largest outdoor museum in Taiwan dedicated to displaying the traditional homes and architecture of Taiwanese indigenous tribes. The nine villages are arrayed over an expansive section of hillside to give visitors a feel of what native Taiwanese villages looked like so many years ago. All buildings were reconstructed based on fieldwork research and blueprints drawn up by anthropologists in the 1930s and 40s.

If you are there just for the roller coasters and such, you may get a little underwhelmed. But if you are there to understand about the Aboriginal Cultures, you are in for a feast. This theme park did a good job of catering to all kinds of tourists. Life-sized models of the various types of housing, performances, hands-on activities like... More

There were little villages showcasing some of the aboriginal tribes. There are information boards in English. The boys enjoyed the archery and blow-pipes challenges though they didn't win any prizes. The cable car ride was quite nice, lovely views. There are eateries inside the village. Prices and food are okay. The cultural show (in Mandarin) was quite interesting with audience... More

Interesting tourist attraction, learning about the aborigines, didn't manage to play in the theme park but it looked super interesting, enjoy the stroll among the trees and flowers, and watch the performances, end up at the lake where you can go on your way, or back through the park.

We do not regret visiting this place. It is a huge area and showcased the different aboriginal tribes' dwelling place, culture and practices. So it takes time to visit all these different areas. We have to skip certain parts because we also wanted to enjoy the Amusement Isle and Aladdin Pavilion for the rides and shows. There are live performances... More

The Formosan Aboriginal Culture park is a good place to learn about the original ethnic groups that inhabited the island. There are many recreations of their houses and structures and several shows of their song and dance celebrations. You can reach the park via car or via a cable car. I recommend the cable car since it gives you a... More
