“Scenic waterfalls!”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

The Wulai & Shifen waterfall are very scenic. Walk through the Wulai street across the bridge with lots of local food on both sides. It's my first time I tasted pink guava here which was pretty sweet but full of seeds. The thinly sliced braised cow's stomach, century egg and steamed peanuts laced with oyster sauce at a local market before heading to Shifen waterfall , were very appetizing. The ride up to Shifen waterfall was scenic too. There is an information office at the end of the Wulai street next to the local police station and English brochures are available.

“Nice waterfall”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Went to Wulai in the afternoon. A good walk to see the big waterfall. The cable car ride was a short one. Worth travelling to if you have time in Taipei. Half a day is sufficient.

“Nice excursion”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

It's a nice little excursion out from the city. Take the MRT to xin dian and then transfer to bus 849 to Wulai. It could be half a day or a full day depending on whether you are going for the hot springs. For meals, go to Taiya Po Po (泰雅婆婆美食店) for the bamboo rice (竹筒飯), stir-fried wild mountain boar (山豬), mountain bittergourd, millet wine (小米酒), etc.

Wulai is a place where you can interact with the older generation of Taiwan.The bus we took mainly had older people.Bus: Sindian Bus from Sindian MRT Station to Wulai .As you get to approach Wulai,you get to see wall paintings and carvings representing the various cultures,work ,dressing and way of life for the Indigenous people.Upon reaching the place we did not see any people dressed up in traditional clothing etc all because of industrialization.The place is modern,the streets are narrow though.You get to see a big river passing in between the town and the shops ,restaurants are all packed close together.It was interesting to walk along the streets,though it rained and was cold.Got to enjoy the traditional delicacies,which were very delicious.I ate the rice that is cooked in bamboo and ,bamboo soup and wild pig.This was very very very sweet.I advise all who go here ,to try this or any of their other delicacies.Most of the shops however stock lots of traditional memorabilia and souvenirs.
I got a chance to visit one of the Churches and that was great.
The Wulai Atayal Museum was the reason we visited Wulai but unfortunately,we found it was closed on that day because of painting.However,I think it has lots to learn about the Atayal people as I peeped through the window.I believe it is worth the visit as we still got to enjoy the place
