Wulai St., Wulai Dist., New Taipei City 233, Taiwan (R.O.C.)
The Wulai District of New Taipei City is famed for a wealth of hot springs and cherry blossoms. The Atayal (the third largest indigenous tribe in Taiwan) also form a big presence in Wulai, which is part of their traditional territory. As a result, Wulai Old Street boasts plenty of aboriginal art stores with some amazing and unique pieces for sale. Visitors can also sample traditional delicacies sold by the local population, including millet wine, hot spring eggs, sausages and many more. Restaurants dishing out aboriginal fares are also in abundance. Wulai Atayal Museum by the entrance of the old street is very worth a visit if you are interested in a bit of local culture. At the very end of the street, it is where you board the trolley train that takes you to a beautiful waterfall.
Never leave Wulai without trying the flavorful sausages, especially the ones served at Yage. The special condiment made from soy sauce, chili peppers and minced garlic will tickle your taste buds and bring your experience to a whole new level. Another highly raved spot is Kaojia, serving ice-cold eggs that are slow cooked in the water of hot springs. If you are a bread lover, those steamed buns with different fillings, from a mixture of scallions and meat to braised pork with preserved vegetable in soy sauce, will be a delight for sure.
