Formosa Aboriginal Cultural Village has the largest outdoor museum in Taiwan dedicated to displaying the traditional homes and architecture of Taiwanese indigenous tribes. The nine villages are arrayed over an expansive section of hillside to give visitors a feel of what native Taiwanese villages looked like so many years ago. All buildings were reconstructed based on fieldwork research and blueprints drawn up by anthropologists in the 1930s and 40s.

We enjoyed the visit to the Village, there was so much educational information at the village. We spent a whole day enjoying the park, the rides and the food. Would defiantly come back again.

Getting there: From Ita Thao (Yi Da Shao) Pier, you'll have to walk around 700m to arrive at the Ropeway/ Cablecar station, passing by the many souvenir stores of Itashao Old Street followed by a nature's board walk along the lake. If not, you'll have to pay about 5-10usd for a short cab ride to reach the Ropeway station... the... More

The gondola ride is quite fun and we can enjoy the bird eyes view. On the weekdays, it was very quiet. The show from the tribes is only 1 song which was disappointed since we expect more. The theme park itself is in good condition and well maintained. Family with children and teenagers well like it.

Thanks for your review. I think you must missed the Naruwan Theater Show which is a 40min long attraction. Anyway, we arrange different show or even flash mob at different places and time. Please choose the best show or convenient time for your stay. Look forward to your revenue soon. More

This is a cross between a cultural village and an amusement park. We went for the cultural aboriginal park aspect, although once the kids realised there was a small amusement park with rides associated with it, for them that was the highlight! Lots to keep you interested with the top part of the village more about the lifestyle and way... More

It may not be as grand as E-da or Disneyland, but this tourist play area boasts of the weather as it is one of the well-maintained facility in Taiwan. The place is excellent for PWDs and tourists with pets. I saw some pet carriers with small wheels. Do take the cable car to witness the beauty and solemn of this... More

Place requires a lot of walking so I would suggest to wear comfortable footwear. It's a good place to understand how Taiwan's aboriginal tribes. Don't miss the shows, schedules are shown in the park pamphlets.

Thank you for your review of the park. It is a good place not only to understand the Taiwan's indigenous people but also to relax and stroll among the beautiful forest. It may worth your while to walk a bit to meet the treasures along the trail. But there are cable car and courtesy bus for guests to take which... More

We visited during Dec school holidays. Rainy season yet park visitors continue enjoying themselves in either raincoat or umbrellas. Extremely popular with locals, you can judge by the row and row of local buses! Tickets are reasonably priced; twd 780(adults), twd 680(student), twd 580 (children taller than 120cm, but below 150cm). Tickets can't buy online, but luckily there was no... More

In a quiet place like Nantou, you wouldn't really expect a place this beautiful. It looks like Europe! And what's even better is that it has a theme park. A must visit.

What's not to love?! This park is a very unusual mixture of aboriginal culture (recreations, demonstrations, sculptures, etc) and modern amusement park rides (log rides, roller coasters, 4D movies, etc). It's an interesting way to spend part of a day. It does get crowded though, and the line for the cable car gets quite long.

On first arrival it seems like an ordinary small theme park but venture further into the history of Taiwan by taking the gondola (ropeway) to the top of the park and work your way down. There are some thrilling rides but the aboriginal village museums were my absolute favourite. Don't go to Sun moon lake spend the whole day here... More
