Taipei’s Beautiful Village/Lestari Mahastuti

How to go there : By bus or train
Wulai, located at one corner of Taipei County, can be easily reached from Taipei by Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) and city bus. Just take the red line (Tamsui-Xindian) MRT, get-off at MRT Xindian Station, and take the 849 bus to the last station, Wulai. The bus stop can be found at the behind of MRT Xindian Station’s information counter.
Recommendation:
Depart from MRT Xindian Station to Wulai, the journey will be through a mountainous road with beautiful scenery of greenery on the left side and Nanshi River on the right side, make around 40 minutes journey become a pleasant experience. Make the first step in Wulai, we will be welcomed by a clear view of Nanshi River under the red bridge. The next 5 minutes walk will get us to the famous Wulai Old Street, where we could taste some local delicacies such as bamboo tube rice, cold hot spring egg, hot spring corn, honey-glazed yam, and finally buy some various flavor of sticky rice cake to enjoy back at home. All of those delicacies are unique in culinary method and rich in taste, so that they must be included in the must-try list.
Continue the journey with the satisfied belly, we could directly take the Wulai Log Cart or just take a 30 minutes walk through Lovers’ Trail to get to Waterfall Station and enjoy the relaxing waterfall view. While walking in the Lovers’ Trail, we can also stop a while to enjoy riverside foot bath, feel the refreshing crystal clear water touch our skin. Various hot spring spot can also be found along the trail. Another option of taking the 50 NTD of Wulai Log Cart one-way trip will bring us the memories of old times and definitely worth a try. It will be best to firstly take a Lovers’ Trail walk to the waterfall while our energy is still full and ride the Wulai Log Cart on the way back. However, there is no harm to do the reverse instead.
The next journey after the waterfall is a cable car trip to the Yunxian Amusement Park. With 220 NTD (150 NTD for student) round trip ticket, we could experience a cable car journey across Nanshi River to the nearby mountain where the Yunxian Amusement Park located. Hiking along the park pathways, we can see a lot of aboriginal culture attribute in display. In the middle of the park, there is a small beautiful lake in which we can try our luck with paddle boat. Feel the fresh air, enjoy the beautiful garden view, and hear the soothing sounds of water flow while paddling around the lake is such a special moment to remember. We might also get a funny opportunity to interact with other tourists when our boat slowly hit each other. Just prepare our cutest smile and say, “Sorry, actually I can’t paddling a boat,” and share the laughter together to complete our memorable journey at Wulai.
