  • 如果可以安排應該找非假日過來,騎自行車過來,安排在春天或秋天比較涼爽,游完傳藝可以騎車回冬山河。這樣的安排比較悠閒。 
  • As an expat it was enlightening for about an hour, but was done very quickly. A little cheesy and very commercial. Too touristy. The real thing: 'old streets' across Taiwan, are much better at giving ...  more »

  • We loved our time here. The shops are truelly beautiful and interesting. Wonderful to see these ancient arts preserved. The park itself has shade and is child friendly with DIY activities and colourful shows. The nurse and large paved areas provided much needed rest from the heat.
  • All right visit. Nothing awesomely outstanding and it's more of a shopping park with a touch if history than the other way around. Worth to see, but not something I would put in the bucket list. Time is better spent going hiking if you are in Yilan.
  • Local craft experts making ornaments on site. As well as buying them, you can make them too in their DIY workshops. Live performances. Modern conveniences make it school and family friendly. Dying, mosaics, necklaces, fishtank ornaments, etc. Well done.
  • This place is a delight. Get there in time for a show. Our 2.5 year old loved it.
  • Obvious tourist trap with shops lining every "street". Very few people with little activity or shows on the day of my visit. Entry fees should not be necessary. There's really not a whole lot going for it except the obvious money that went into the reconstructions of historical buildings that are sadly just more shops.
