The sudden decline of Taiwan's economy and unregulated real estate speculation has left a vast landscape of grey abandoned rot for all of us to enjoy. One thing these places are good for though is content.
⚠️ WARNING: RULES FOR PRIVATE PROPERTY
While the chances of being caught, detained, or prosecuted for going on private property in abandoned places like these are virtually zero, it's technically still illegal and there still exists the possibility of getting in trouble. So we strongly advise you to get permission before entering such places to avoid an increased wanted level.
Amusement Park In YuanShan
Imagine colorful and bright childhood memories at the summer fair... Now imagine the inevitable decay and death that lies in the future for everyone and everything near and dear to our hearts....
Hard to picture? Don't want to? No worries! You can see it for yourself here!
Just don't let any stray dogs catch you crying. Remember all living things prey on weakness!
📍 Address: No. 33, Yumen Street, Zhongshan District, Taipei City, 10491.
House In Beitou
Another tragedy-stricken individual means another spot for you to hunt for likes! Aren't you lucky? This house is the perfect spot to get some quick easy photos and then continue to explore Taipei in search of that next dopamine drip!
📍 Address: 214, Daoxiang Road, Beitou District, Taipei City, 112
House In Xindian
This seems like it was an amazing house in its day. Given its current state there has to be a horror story behind it, but we'll never know, and I doubt you care!
All we know is that you can mine this place for your next Grindr photo now. May the swipes be ever in your favor!
📍 Address: No. 46號, Yongye Road, Xindian District, New Taipei City, 231
(The house is before the hotel at this address)
This abandoned house doubles as a honey farm which is cool because they give tours and show you all the bees. Once they're done showing you the honey farm you can ask to go upstairs and explore freely.
This place seems to have been quarters for an American military officer here during the 50s. You see the sad thing about military officers is that they often deploy to places like Taiwan with beautiful women but are usually already married to disgusting Karens.
Sadly there is no medal for this hardship either.
📍 Address: No. 45, Kaixuan Road, Shilin District, Taipei City, 111
Rumor has it this was a shoe factory. It's a pretty crazy place with gutted out cars and all sorts of surprises. To get here you walk past the sports center and through a big hole in the fence with a bunch of 'No Trespassing' signs that nobody listens to.
Locals come here to play with air-soft guns. So don't be surprised if you get here and are surrounded by guys dressed as SWAT team members —they're not real and your weed stash is safe.
📍 Address: No. 188-6號, Zhongzheng Road, Shulin District, New Taipei City, 23867
Wanli UFO Village
WanLi UFO village is always under threat of removal by the property owners. Further, they keep becoming more and more strict with photographers here.
There's a guy on a scooter who drives around brandishing a bamboo stick (no joke) to make sure nobody goes inside the houses. So you may need to bring a friend (or enemy) to serve as a decoy if you want to shoot pics/video inside these things.
📍 Address: Tingtao Road, Wanli District, New Taipei City, 207
