Come to the green paradise of Yilan to get away from the hustle and bustle of Taipei City. It only takes 1h30 by bus to free your soul!
There in Wai’ao, we own a nice Beach House where you can crash, chill, party, play video games and rent some surf boards. The beach is at a 1-minute walk distance from the house so you can go anytime of day and night. In our beach house, you can use everything: bunk bed, hot shower, washing machine, kitchen, and free coffee!
Oh! Did I mention that we have a cute border collie living with us too? You’re more than welcome to pet her, she’s the loveliest!
How to access?
The beach house is between Wushi habour bus stop and Wai’ao train station, it’s easy to access to by public transport. The fastest and cheapest way is with Kuokuang Bus 1877 from YuanShan MRT (click here to see how to walk to the bus station from the MRT) or NanGang Station/Exhibition Center MRT to WuShi Harbour ($99 NTD). The train is longer and more expensive!
The house is about 10 minutes walk from the bus station. (click here to see how to go from the WuShi Harbor to the beach house)

Commute from the airport
Once at the airport (there is free Wi-Fi ), follow the signs MRT to Taipei Main (purple line). Buy a ticket to Taipei Main at the counter.
Tide the MRT to Taipei Main, it should take about an hour (again free Wi-Fi in the MRT). Then you will exit that MRT, but you will stay indoor and just follow the sign, the walk is about 5min.
Take the red line towards Tamsui. You need to buy a token that will cost 20 NT. You need to select “buy ticket” then select the 20 NT fare.
Exit at YuanShan exit 2. Exit 1 has a cheap sushi shop to go, and a 711 so that might be a good place to snack.
Go across and under the bridge, to find the ticket booth and buy a ticket for WuShiGang, 烏石港. Bus number is 1877, need to stop at WuShiGang, terminus station.
Again, free Wi-Fi inside the bus! Let me know of your progress. Bus driver will ask for your yellow ticket when you descent. Then I will pick you up at the bus station.
We hope you enjoy the beach house. Please be responsible and careful.
