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.

Visited here with family during a trip to Sun Moon Lake. We took the gondola over the mountains to reach there which was enjoyable. You get great views of the lake and it's quite a relaxing ride. The village itself is also surrounded by lovely woodland and fields and is quite pleasant to walk around. The village was a bit... More

This 'theme park' makes it enjoyable for visitors to learn and appreciate the aboriginal culture. There is a nice combination of performances, exhibits and crowd participation through singing and food tasting. No wonder, the park was awarded Michelin stars. This is a huge park and it will take you the whole day to fully appreciate the place. Vastly underrated and... More

Great place for people who'd like to learn about the cultures of different tribes Taiwan has. A private tour guide is recommended to talk you through different tribes and to elaborate more about them. There are a few musical performance but all of them are kinda boring. The amusement park is good for teenagers but adults will find it boring... More

Good place to understand the aboriginal tribal activities and living quarters. Small children will like the amusement park rides and aboriginal activities ie. Archery and pipe dart shooting activities there. Easy and straight forward walk down hill.

Nice performance of tribal dances at 1.30 and 3pm. Dont miss it! After that, we tried out the varous activities such as blowpipe shooting for NT100. Further in, there is an amusement park for kids and no queues at all.

Clever idea of incorporating 9 tribes into this village. There is no way you can see the whole park even if you arrive on the dot when they open and leave sharp at closing. It's huge. They should consider having mobility scooters for rent dirt people to take in the whole park. It's a real shame we spent most of... More

While visiting the Great Sun Moon lake, we elected to take two "ropeways" (gondolas) up the mountain to this Village which has reproductions of aboriginal dwellings of numerous tribes.
