Our homestay uncle's son, Eason was kind enough to drive us to Wulai today. The area is less convenient to travel by bus so it was a good thing he could drive. Wulai is known for its aboriginal food and culture. Our first stop was the Wulai Waterfall which honestly looked less impressive in real life than the online photos.
The viewing point near the top of the waterfall had a small train back to the Wulai Old Street (NT50 each) so Hui Chee and I took that for fun while Eason drove back.

The Wulai Old Street wasn't long and mostly sold food. We tried the cold hot spring egg and wild boar weiner.

Another food we tried was the bamboo rice. It was quite fun to open the bamboo stick to get the rice but the rice didn't have any fragrant aroma from the bamboo.
The old street is also home to the Atayal museum which teaches visitors about this aboriginal group including clothing, housing and tools.
In the area was also a suspension bridge which few people were walking on since no public bus seemed to pass by.
Last stop of the day was Bitan which is in New Taipei. There were a lot of people playing the peddle boats on the river under the suspension bridge.
