Take the MRT to Xindia (the final station on the Green Line). Then, in front of the station, catch bus number 849. Wulai is also the bus route’s final stop, so you won’t have to worry about getting off the bus. When you reach the end of the station, you can freely descend and take in the scenery along the route. So, remember to choose a seat on the right side of the bus for a better view. This method will take around an hour.

Taxi! Please transport me to a land free of sadness. That’s correct; simply get in the cab and ask for Wulai, and any driver will know. However, the cost will be rather high, with up to 600TWD (USD19.40) for a 30-minute ride.

The old town of Wulai next to Nanshi River.

The name Wulai is derived from the word “Kirofu Ulai” – a hot spring in the language of the Aboriginal Atayal (a Taiwanese tribe). Continue reading since you already know what the most unique feature of Wulai is, right? The impact of a turquoise, clean hot spring that seems to encompass the entire town is responsible for the fresh air in Wulai.

The “special” mode of transportation utilized to carry tourists to Wulai Falls. What is the significance of the term “special”? This train was repurposed from obsolete wood harvesting equipment and lumber tankers. You’ll have 10 minutes on the train to take in the calm environment of a town in New Taipei and view the Wulai waterfall from a distance.

Wulai Waterfall

Wulai Waterfall
Wulai Waterfall

With a height of 80 meters, this is Taipei’s highest waterfall. Green woods, which are naturally surrounded by trees, feature a vertical waterfall, which gives you chills when you stand in front of it. Mother Nature’s beauty is that there is no words, yet a picture may be expressed.

There are several stores selling aboriginal items along the route that leads to the waterfall. Anyone who likes lovely, antique small items, like myself, will not want to leave once they get lost here. You want to purchase everything because it’s so beautiful!

Yun Hsien Amusement Park

Yun Hsien (Yunxian) Resort

Within minutes after leaving Wulai waterfall, you will arrive at the cable car station, which will take you into Yun Hsien Park. This is Taiwan’s first amusement park. You will spend 220TWD (USD7.12) to ride the cable car and enter the park. If you have lots of time, I believe this is an acceptable amount to pay to see the park on the mountain. Inside, there will be amusement activities with a strong local flavor, such as boating, seeing the streams, and viewing the falls… If you go in May, when the fireflies are in full bloom, the scenery is as lovely as the paintings. However, in my opinion, this is not the finest thing to do in Wulai, so you may save your time for other things.

Wulai Old Street

Those who do not wish to “climb the mountain by cable car.” You will not lose 220TWD because the road from Wulai waterfall to the old town is only 1km distant and you may walk there entirely. But the beauty here is not insignificant. On both sides are thick green trees, and it’s cool enough to view the waterfall and blue streams.

If you travel in the spring, bring a camera and a fully charged phone since cherry blossoms will bloom along the road.

If you travel in the spring, bring a camera and a fully charged phone since the cherry blossoms will bloom on the ancient alleys called after the Atayal language, which are still preserved. I’m not sure about you, but I really appreciate ancient stuff, thus being on these streets makes me experience a lot of emotions. The bridges are “marked” with Atayal symbols. Wandering about, lift the camera to snap a photo, every nook is stunning! way.

Your wallet will be gravely endangered if you go down to the old town since the local stores are brimming with “temptation.” The salespeople will demonstrate all they have on both sides of the road. Let’s go for a walk, and if you see something you like, come on over. There are several inexpensive options available. A key point to remember here is to eat in moderation, since if you just eat one item, you will lose out on many others. Every dish served here is delicious. Stream fish and stream shrimp are must-tries; they are specialties.
