Wanli UFO Village

Send Enquiry
One of the most unique Taiwan places to visit is the Wanli Village, an abandoned beachside resort known for its UFO shaped houses. This art resort features ‘Futuro’ homes that resemble flying saucers. The village itself is a source of significant enigma- nobody knows who built these homes, or even when they came into existence.

Martin Suuronen, the artist attributed with the development of the Futuro home style, has openly denied ever sanctioning the plans for this particular village. Visitors at the village can spend a fantastic time strolling through the deserted streets, exploring the abandoned houses as they pass by.
