An absolute must visit for anyone who wants to learn more about indigenous Taiwanese culture. Taiwanese aboriginals have long suffered under the various administrations in Taiwan, and unemployment and lack of education opportunities are serious problems. This center is trying to stem that tide, but also allow the members of the Bunun tribe to retain their traditions and cultures at the same time.
Located a short drive from Taitung City (by public transport you need to take the Dingdong bus, ask at hotel/train station for up to date information about times) this center is a great little place to spend a few hours. There are daily dancing/singing shows at 11am and 1:30pm that are not to be missed. The staff are really friendly and will give guided tours to show you around and explain everything in English.
Although entry is $150NT, $100 of that money can then be deducted from purchases in the gift shop.
