Wulai (烏來區) is a small town in New Taipei, Taiwan, famous for its hot springs and aboriginal culture. The name of the town derives from the Atayal phrase kirofu ulai meaning "hot and poisonous". Don't let this scare you away from this lovely town! Consider going during the week if you can as it is quite crowded on the weekend. Also, in the summer, it might be a few degrees cooler than Taipei, but the elevation is not sufficient to provide real cooling.
In August 2015, Wulai was severely damaged by Typhoon Souledor. The road to Wulai was washed out completely and the town largely destroyed. Since then, the roads have been repaired and hotsprings are operating as normal, with some road work continuing.
