Take the MRT to Xindia station (Green Line’s last station). Then take the bus number 849 in front of the station. Wulai is also the last stop of the bus route so you don’t have to worry about getting off the bus. When go to the end of the station then go down, freely for sightseeing on the way. Well, remember to sit on the right side of the bus to get the better view. This way will take about 1 hour.

Taxi! Please take me to a place where there is no sadness. That’s true, just get up the taxi and talk to Wulai and any driver know. But of course the price will be quite high, up to 600TWD (USD19.40) for a 30 minutes trip.

Wulai travel blog: What to do?

taiwan wulai blog,wulai day trip,wulai travel blog
The old town of Wulai next to Nanshi River.

The name Wulai is derived from the phrase “Kirofu Ulai” – the language of Aboriginal Atayal (a Taiwanese tribe) meaning a hot spring. Read on here, you probably know what is the most special point in Wulai, right? The fresh air in Wulai is the influence of a turquoise, pure hot spring that seems to embrace the whole town.

The “special” means used to transport tourists to Wulai Falls. Why is it called “special”? This train is reused from timber tankers and tools for the old timber logging. You will have 10 minutes on the train to see the peaceful landscape of a village in New Taipei and see the Wulai waterfall from afar.

Wulai Waterfall

Wulai Waterfall
Wulai Waterfall

This is the tallest waterfall in Taipei, with a height of 80m. Surrounded by trees, green forests naturally have a vertical waterfall, so it really makes you goosebumps when standing in front of it. The beauty of Mother nature is that there is no language, a picture can be described.

On the trail watching the waterfall there are many shops selling aboriginal souvenirs. Anyone who like pretty, vintage little things, like me when get lost here will don’t want to go back. You want to buy everything because it’s too lovely!

Yun Hsien Amusement Park

Yun Hsien (Yunxian) Resort

Walk minutes from Wulai waterfall you will reach the cable car station to pass through Yun Hsien park. This is the first amusement park in Taiwan. You will lose 220TWD (USD7.12) to buy a ticket to go to cable car and enter the park. I think this is quite a reasonable price, to experience the park on the mountain if you have plenty of time. Inside there will be entertainment activities with bold local identity, boating, seeing the streams, seeing the falls … If you go in May, in the right season of fireflies, the scene is as beautiful as the paintings. But in my opinion, this is not the best thing in Wulai so you can skip to spend time for other activities.

For those who do not choose to “climb mountain by cable car”. You will not lose 220TWD, the road from Wulai waterfall to the old town is only 1km away so you can completely walking. But the beauty here is non trivial. On both sides are lush green trees, cool, you can both watching the waterfall and turquoise streams.

If you go in the spring, you must prepare a camera, a phone that fully charged because the cherry blossoms will bloom on the way.

Ancient streets named follow the Atayal language are still retained. I don’t know how about you guys, but I really like old things, so standing on these streets, I also feel a lot of emotion. The Atayal symbols are “marked” on the bridges. Wandering, raise the camera to take a picture, every corner is beautiful!

Down to the old town, your purse will be seriously threatened because of the local shops full of “temptation.” The sales people will show everything they have on the both roadside. Let’s strolling and if you like something, then stop by. Countless choices here that are affordable. A big note here is eat a little, because if you keep eating only a food, you will miss many other things. Every food here is so delicious. Stream fish with stream shrimp are must definitely try, that are specialities.
