    Small Wulai Scenery (¤p¯Q¨Ó­·´º°Ï) - at Taoyuan

    by sunnywong Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Small Wulai Waterfall is on the Yunei stream in Fusying Township. The best place viewing the waterfall is the four-storied "Waterfall-Viewing Platform" beside the highway. The waterfall originates from a slender valley. Owing to the broken river floor, the stream water drops straight down with grand momentum. A wind- tunnel-stone there is about 5m high; the only small part of its bottom touches the ground, looking shaky. From May to June, Nov. to next Feb. is the best time to watch birds. It's also nice to take a green shower here.

  • Hsinchu City World Expo-Taiwan Pavilion

    by claireyang Written Jul 4, 2013

    World Expo Taiwan Pavilion was one of the popular pavilions at Shanghai World Expo 2010. After two years of waiting, it has relocated in Hsinchu, Taiwan. The Taiwan Pavilion is shaped like a sky lantern and at the center is a huge LED ball which will present light show after 6 pm on weekdays. Very fascinating! The Taiwan Pavilion is a four-story building, and visitors don’t need to pay the admission fee for entry unless you want to go to the fourth floor to experience the 4D movie and launch an electronic sky lantern. There are some shops on the first and second floor, where you can buy souvenirs, gifts and taste the local snack. On the third floor is the city theme pavilion, and National Chiao Tung University is holding “Technology, Brain, Future” special exhibition there.

    Shihmen Reservoir (¥Ûªù­·´º°Ï) - at Taoyuan

    by sunnywong Written Feb 25, 2003

    It's built with the functions of flood control, irrigation, sights view, electricity and water supply, etc.; the beautiful scenery is around the reservoir. You'll see a good view of the whole reservoir when looking far away from the place of the dam. The nearby spots are Fairyland for children, the Asia amusement park and Golden Birds Amusement Park. These are good places for family travel. Go to Hsihmen tasting fishes is gluttons' favorite as the fishes in the reservoir are so fresh and tasteful; many tourists come mainly to eat it.
