  • 來了至少三次把。 第一次逛很有趣啦 但 沒什麼特別的。 而且裡面的東西有噱頭但一點都不好吃。不值得吃。玩的也沒什麼特別的 
  • The village is overall cute, but I didn't really find any good places where to eat. I was lucky to see a performance of a group of drummers, which was nice. But I wouldn't spend there more than one ho...  more »
  • 蠻有趣的地方ㄛ~非常有日本卡通的感覺!手機只能拿出來拍啊拍~適合全家大小、情侶前往~假日因蠻多人的,車位可是一位難求ㄛ~ 裏面有提供住宿~但本人還未住過,所以無法評價囉~~小孩蠻喜歡來妖怪村~推~

  • Very small, can finish all the walk path with just less than 5 minutes, not worth it if you just come to see this place, but the decoration still cool, and most of the staff make up to be like monster
  • Interesting place, unique from other sites in Taiwan. Pretty small, but the nearby forests have trails you can walk along and enjoy the scenery
  • Simply a tourist attraction. Good ford kids, but quite crowded.
  • One of the most hidden gem in Taiwan, hidden in the nice forest reserve. Great scene, Nice food, nice people.
  • Exotic atmosphere at night about this monster village , very close to the gate of forest.
