well worth a visit. pleasant drive to mountain region about 1 hour from central taichung. great scenic cable car ride to sun moon lake, bit touristy but to be expected, lots of shops and places to eat along Lake front. interesting and fun amusement and theme park based on local aborigines. great day out.

Fun theme park! It's divided into 2 parts - The aboriginal tribes showcase and the theme park. It's a great place for a full day of educational tour and fun.

This is a park that suites people of all ages, I think. When we visited the park, the theme is One Piece, which I personally like very much. There are several rides that youngsters could challenge and enjoy. (There's a ride where you would get really wet. Bring some extra clothers if you're ready for that!) For the kids, they also have the typical rides for them.
There are museums that shows the culture and life of the Aboriginal Tribes in Taiwan, this is very suitable for those who aren't interested in taking adventurous rides. You could try the archery and the blowguns to experience how they hunt in the ancient times, it definitely is harder that you thought. There are also food stalls everywhere in case you get hungry.
We were in a packaged tour when we went to this place thus not much time was given to us. So in consideration of the 3 family members who are not willing to experience the rides, we decided to visit the Aboriginal Village part first. To get to that part, you could either walk, take the bus or take the cable car. We chose the third one. Its fast and the view was nice.
Take your time to enter every museum which have a lot of wax models that shows you how the life of the aboriginals are. As you walk along with the path, you would be walking down back to the amusement area. Well, the scarce time allowed us, me and my brother, to take one ride only. And we chose the free fall!!! Only if time permits, we would definitely try it once or maybe twice!

Btw, you may also spend some time for photograph sessions on the flower garden before you enter the park.

The literal Chinese name of this village is the Cultural village of 9 aboriginal tribes and while putting in all the modern rides and gadgets to make the visit worthwhile, they managed to incorporate the characteristics of each of the 9 tribes thereby being true to their name. Excellent.

Kids had fun, oldies had fun. Food choices were in keeping with the theme, well located rest stops with food, drinks,clean restroom facilities.

To finish everything the park had to offer in a day will be a stretch. Two days leisurely pace would be good to see and finish all they had to offer but not necessary. So a day leaving you wanting to revisit would be best.

This is an old park but its constantly being renovated and upgraded because one of us had been their like twenty something years ago before the cable cars were put in and she could see all the improvements and be thrilled all over again.

After entering the main gate is the Ritz European Garden. Walk up the stairs you are at the main entrance of Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village. Who would expect to see such a huge amusement park in a culture village. You will hear screams and laughters around.

You can choose to take the bus around the village, or the cable car to the hilltop, or slowly exploring and hiking up the slope. Right after the amusement park, you feel the serene and peace surround you. Best way to learn the history and culture of Taiwan aborigines through displays, artworks and dance performances.

At the hilltop, you can take the cable car linking the village to Sun Moon Lake. It is a great chance to see the lake from the top. Boat ride is NT$100 per ride. There are three stops and they consider from one stop to another stop is one ride. NT$300 to round the lake. Must not miss!
