    Taiwan Aboriginal Culture Park

The Taiwan Indigenous Peoples Cultural Park can be found in Beiye Village of Majia Township in Pingtung. Formerly the Majia Cultural Village, the Cultural Park was established in 1985 and covers an area of 82 hectares, where Paiwan and Lukai communities can be found in the adjacency. The Cultural Park aims to present and preserve Taiwan’s indigenous culture and is said to be the largest outdoor indigenous museum presenting the greatest research value in Taiwan.

Spanning across 145 to 220 meters above sea level, the Cultural Park features rugged terrains and diverse landscapes. It is divided into four main areas: the Greeting Area, the Tamaluwan Area, the Naluwan Area, and the Fuguwan Area. Tamaluwan and Fuguwan are two areas where traditional indigenous architecture and the full view of tribal life are on display. The Naluwan Area is where visitors can enjoy dynamic performances. The place features performance halls, an amphitheater, and a museum home to sculptures of ten indigenous tribes. There is also a place where people can participate in DIY workshops to make indigenous handicrafts.

The Cultural Park also has a hiking trail, allowing visitors to climb to a higher ground where they can look across the whole park, spotting houses made of slate stones, bamboos, and logs scattered in the lush green forest below, which is decorated with random sculptures that keep track of the development of local indigenous culture.

Visitors are recommended to spend three hours here to explore the park by taking the shuttle bus between different areas. They are also recommended to watch performances put on by indigenous people.

    Great place to get a taste of the indigenous tribes of Taiwan. Lots of DIY and performance art. If you’ve been before, check it out again, they built new and remodeled the indoor exhibit areas. If you want a car parking spot close by go early, if not it’s a bit of a hike (or just take a scooter or bus). Great food options and low entrance fee plan to spend a minimum of a half day, if not longer. Very English friendly. A must go if you are in this neck of the woods.

    Wonderful opportunity to experience some of the charm and distinctiveness of Taiwanese aboriginal culture. The dance show and glass beads workshop were highlights for us. The staff (most of whom appear to be of aboriginal heritage) are very friendly, helpful and eager to share their culture.

    This is a very beautiful place to spend the day with the family and kids. There are a lot of activities and history to learn from. It's very touching to see the great job these people are putting in to keep up these traditions. There are different food stands options. The place is well maintained as well. The staff are very friendly and polite. I was lucky to meet a volunteer that was helping out and he could speak English. I advise to arrive to this place as early as possible since maybe one day won't be enough to see its full potential. Finally, be prepared to fall in love with all the art crafts for sale here.

    We decided to do a day trip so we took the HSR from Taipei to Zuoying station (1.5 hrs) then rented a car to drive there (1hr). Great place to learn about the indigenous peoples of Taiwan. The singing and dancing performance was definitely the highlight of the day. Show times are 1030, 1400 and 1600. The show alone is already worth coming! We also got to try indigenous food, wrapped glutinous rice roll at the end of the tour just outside the park. What a nice finale to the trip!
