A cape in Wanli, near Taipei, famous for its hoodoo stones, thin spires of rock formed by sedimentary stone. Many rock formations have creative names, including the most well-known “The Queen's Head.”
You will feel like you have just landed in an alien planet with its landscape of quirky and eccentric-shaped rock formations with equally eccentric names such as Queen’s Head and Cute Princess. Shaped by the awesome forces of nature (wind and waves), this place is so unique that you will be utterly moonstruck. At a reasonably-priced entrance fees of NTD 80, you are free to roam freely within this geopark as long as you observe 2 rules - do not touch any rock formations or venture beyond the red lines drawn on the ground. This attraction can easily be packaged as a day tour together with Shifen and Jiufen.

Experience the ancient traditions of Chinese landscaping with the majestic home of the Lin family. A pond, square pavilion and ornamental plants such as cypress, plum and bamboo adorn the majestic garden. Each Chinese New Year there is a chrysanthemum exhibit.
I had a few hours to spare when last in Taipei so I visited the Lin family mansion and this used to be one of the major landmarks in its hey day. Lovely gardens and paths with classical old residences. I wouldn't say its drop dead impressive but glad I visited all the same. There is an NT$80 (US$2.50) entry fee. To get there get of the MRT at Fuzhong station (Blue line station6). Walk along Fuzhong road and turn right on Wenchang road then left at Ximen street. The mansion is only a minute walk from there. In closing I also liked the fact that the crowds were small and the few that were there can easily be avoided as the grounds are quite large. Hope this helps.

The first modern ceramics museum in the nation, The construction of the New Taipei City Yingge Ceramics Museum was first proposed in 1988 and opened to the public on November 26, 2000. In twelve years, it has become the leading county museum in Taiwan and the first professional museum wholly dedicated to ceramics.
A modern and well designed ceramics-themed museum. The museum displays the techniques used for pottery, the history of ceramics, and fine ceramics used in computers, telephones, and other high-techs. The contents of the exhibitions cover a wide range of topics, including cultures, arts and sciences. There are also collections of ceramic artworks from Taiwan and other countries. The architecture of the Museum itself is a masterpiece. A very nice museum, suitable for all ages.

We were a group of six who came for a day tour of this beautiful spiritual community started in 1989 and completed in 2005 by Master Sheng Yen. We arrived and had a tour of the main building that gave an excellent history of the project and its place within the Chan Buddhist Tradition. We had an excellent lunch in the monastery dining room and then visited the lotus feel park which houses a 15 ton bronze bell inscribed with the Diamond Sutra in 80,000 characters. It is rung twice a year. The hospitality was very kind, the tour informative and the place is a beautiful example of contemporary Buddhist design.

This is a short hike but the view of the rock and the surrounding ocean areas is amazing. You can climb onto the trunk of the elephant and take some nice pictures as well! There is no trail, it is kind of just a bunch of rocks that you need to hopping across. Probably not the easiest for people with weak legs or bad balance.
