The area is small with many hot spring resort. You may enjoy with your bf/gf in couple bath for 1hr (approx NT399/pax). There are many restaurant along the street and street food for you to eat and walk around. Alternative, you may take a taxi to see the teeny tiny waterfall of Wulai (10-15mins drive).

We took an hour of bus trip, which was packed like a can of Sardin in this hot summer month of May. The trip was not an easy one with many turns and with not many rooms to even stand, because the bus driver keep letting people in to the point that the door can hardly close. The ride itself...

An hour on the bus from Taipei only to find, with no notification, they've closed the bridge so couldn't go hiking or see waterfalls. Complete waste of time.

The locals sees Wulai as their back garden where they could get away from the hustle and bustle of Taipei. It is about an hour trip by public transport (mrt and train) or 30 minutes by taxi away from Taipei. Wulai is a place to visit if you like soaking in hotsprings or hot baths, and if you like soaking... More

Quite a rundown place. Boarding and abandoned damaged buildings aplenty. Restoration ongoing with Komatsu forklifts and whirring of generators. Mostly local tourists. Some visitors from Hongkong. Some interesting streetfood like the wild boar sausage.

My family and I paid $35 per pax and joined a local tour agency to tour Wu Lai and it was a great experience!

Getting there is an easy trip by Metro and bus. The bus trip provides good opportunities to see the country outside Taipei. The centre of the village has the normal tourist shops and restaurants, but the real attraction is the spectacular waterfall reached by a walk of about 2km up the river valley.

The Wu Lai Waterfall stands at about 80m talls, looks majestic and beautiful. The Wu Lai Lao Jie (Wu Lai old street) had some stalls/eateries selling local produce e.g. vegetables that tasted quite nice, but overall, the main river was under construction. thus spoiling the entire view of the place. The push car train ride was out of service due... More
