Wulai District, Taipei: Hot springs and Street Food - What to expect?

Wulai District is an aboriginal village in the north of Taiwan, 30 minutes away from Taipei by taxi and home to the Atayal people. It mostly known for their hot springs, and it's something that I recommend if you want some hot bath. The hot springs is ideal for a quick dip in its 55 to 80 degree Celsius mineral water while enjoying the view of beautiful red cherry blossoms that cover the mountainside. It also posses waterfall that is popular destination for tourist. Adjacent to the waterfall are the museum and cable car. 

While the tourist see's Wulai as a beautiful getaway from the hustle and bustle to enjoy some tranquil time. The locals sees it on the other hand as their back garden where they could get all their needs. The weather in this place is tricky.
