Wulai, Xinbei

3.7
#2 of 14 in Neighborhoods in Taiwan
Neighborhood Historic Site
Escape the bustle of city life with a trip to Wulai, a sleepy Atayal aboriginal village famous for its natural hot springs. At the sanctuary offering hiking, bathing, and relaxation, you can hike the “Lover’s trail” to the village’s 80 m (262.5 ft) waterfall, or hop on the scenic train to its base. A trip to the village won’t be complete without a visit to one of its many hot springs, so pick your favorite private or public spring and bask in pools of luxurious tranquility. When you’re feeling peckish, try one of the indigenous Atayal tribe’s classic dishes: mountain boar kebabs. The village becomes especially popular between January and March, when the cherry blossoms take full bloom. Plan your Wulai visit and explore what else you can see and do in Xinbei using our Xinbei vacation planner.

Where to stay in Xinbei

Far more accommodations lie in adjacent Taipei than in Xinbei. That said, if you're keen to stay in Xinbei, you won't have any problems finding a place to sleep. Banqiao district offers the largest collection of hotels, guesthouses, and hostels in the new city, particularly around Fuzhong station. A similar variety, but greater number, of accommodations can be found in Taipei's central district, with a vast array of hotels great and small, guesthouses, hostels, and boutiques available to the east of the Tamsui River.
