The very friendly lady boss of Season Garden House 山季节花园 kindly gave us a ride to Formosan Aborigine Village today and came to pick us up with our luggage later the afternoon when we're done.
Can't bear to leave this place today and regretted not extending an additional night stay here. Oh, how I miss the fresh air and the tranquil garden here.
- Simple breakfast at Season House 山季节花园
- Formosan Aborigine Village (Spent about 5 hours here)
- HSR Taichung back to HSR Zuoying (Kaohsiung)
Formosan Aborigine Village
Formosan Aborigine Village is a stone throw away from Season Garden House, taking a mere 5 minutes drive. And yes you can purchase discounted tickets from Season Garden House as well.
I've been wanting to visit Formosan Aborigine Village since planning our first visit to Taiwan for our honeymoon but never got around to doing it as we're always in the north area.
This Kaohsiung Trip brought about much first time for us and we're glad we made the move to make Nantou part of the trip as well.
Visiting Formosan Aborigine Village or in fact, any theme parks or attractions are always best on a weekday. Especially for theme parks so that you do not have to waste time queuing for rides.
Formosan Aborigine Village was a unique kind of its own combining the Aborigine Village like a museum together with a theme park as well as the ropeway (cable car) ride to Sun Moon Lake. Think about Formosan Aborigine Village like Singapore's version of Sentosa but of course in a much smaller scale. The entrance ticket covers everything inclusive of your ropeway (cable car ride.)

Guess what, there's no queue at all here so might as well.
Another about Kaohsiung, it is significantly less crowded than Taipei which makes our travelling experience a lot more pleasant minus off all of the queues, waiting time and having to battle with the crowd.
We got off at the Sun Moon Lake station to take a couple of shots and took the ropeway back to the middle part where the Formosan Aborigine Village were.
This is probably one of the stage where they do live performances.
It was really interesting visiting and looking at the different type of aborigine houses and villages, reading up on their history and culture. The good thing is we can enter most of the houses and tour around. Everything looks so real.
And then when we had enough, or when Sticky Bean's patience starts wearing out, it's her turn to have fun. We head straight to the indoor amusement centre since Sticky Bean won't be able to take any of the outdoor rides.
The kids amusement centre at Formosan Aborigine Village was super kids friendly. Plus point, it's in an indoor, sheltered area so it's weatherproof.
Sticky Bean, who was 5 years old at the point of travel and standing at 105 cm was able to take all of the rides there.
Once again, the very kind lady boss of Season Garden House came to pick us up and sent us to the bus station where we can take a bus from Nantou to Tai Chung High-Speed Rail station. The bus can be super crowded though and they do not allow passengers to stand on the bus.
We took the High-Speed Rail from Taichung back to Zuoying (Kaohsiung), bought a bento set each at SGD4 to eat in the HSR for experience sake.
Upon reaching Zuoying, we took a taxi to our accommodation which is really the highlight of our Kaohsiung trip at FunBus, 10 minutes taxi ride away from Zuoying HSR. Stay tuned for the review of our castle themed room with slides at Fun Bus.
Tip #11: You can purchase discounted tickets to Formosan Aborigine Village from the lady boss from Season Garden House 山季节花园
