  • 這裡景色一半的古色古香又帶點日本風味的巧趣妖怪村,尤其是在晚上夜景拍起照來,是格外的美麗有如來到50年代的夜晚。  more »
  • 我以為妖怪村很大,可是實際去才發現其實場地很小 因為抵達時是晚上,吃的店家並不多,但野菜鍋很好吃,都市吃不到的野菜,非常新奇 晚上有樂團在演唱,讓人感到輕鬆  more »
  • Interesting little village that is worth walk around. However there's isn't much shops or eatery for one to stay here for Long. Could drop by for a short visit if it's on the way.  more »

  • 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.
