Not sure what else is available in Xitou but best that this location would be a 'by the way' place. Interesting place with Japanese monsters as the theme but that's the most there is.

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.

Small amusement park for children. Seriously overrun during the weekends. Live performances of monsters, music, shops and stall with souvenirs and food.

Personally I feel is a waste of time coming here all the way. The journey to here don't worth it. Selling foods snacks souvenir . Cover the entire place within 10mins .

The village is overall cute, but I didn't really find any good places where to eat. I was lucky to see a performance of a group of drummers, which was nice. But I wouldn't spend there more than one hour max. However, a nice spot where to wait for a bus.

Good place to stop over for the night. Makes one of the better choices in the Nantou area. Walking street is pretty small, can be completed in less than 30 min. Most of the shops are eateries and souvenir shops. There's a bakery which sells chicken floss cheese bread (bakery claimed tht it's sold out everyday) Available for sale at... More

A little similar to an attraction park, this area is a must for anime enthusiasts and families with children. There are performances for free in the evening and many things to wander around and see including lots of cheap food to enjoy. A very unique attraction in this area and not to be missed.

Must take a stroll in the forest area. The air quality in it was just out of this world. Be prepare to walk quite a bit. At the monster village, I think they are trying to vamp up the place and it should be quite interesting to stay one night there.
