Xitou Monster Village Reviews
Monster village is an amazing monster theme park in Xitou. To complete your experience here, a stay at its hotel is highly recommended! (there was no review section for the hotel, so we shared here!) more »
園區不大、有太多遊客啦 但空氣品質良好、溫度涼爽 路程有些許遙遠 交通比起從前已改善很多 希望以後可以增加新設施 more »It's not big, there's too many customers, but the air is good, the distance is cool, the traffic is a lot better than before, hopefully to add new facilities later.
As a day visit traveller. Cute little outdoor Plaza of shops in forest theme. In the complex there's a hotel as well as themed lodges in the forest. The food stalls consist of some serving traditional Taiwanese street food as well as shops with toys and souvenirs. However all in all, apart from the forest lodges and the theme of the place, there isn't much depth in terms of food or activities.
An interesting place. You will like it if you are into japanese mosters. There is enough thing for you to spend a day but not more. The food looks interesting but do not expect to find anything that taste good.
