For those people living in Taipei, they must be familiar with Wulai. Exiting from Xindian MRT station, taking a bus up a few switchbacks in the mountain, this six-hour journey is like a buffer zone to feel the tranquility of the mountains and leave the uproars of the city behind. After passing Quchi Road but before a red single-arched Wulai Bridge, there is a building blended with Atayala��s traditional building material of stone-slab and marble, which is a�?Volando Urai Spring Spa & Resort.a�?
