1. Introduction

• Known for: rural area
• Population: 81,000 (2012, source)
• Wade-Giles: Wu-gu
• Pinyin: Wǔgǔ

Wugu 五股區 is one of Taipei's northwestern districts. It's main urban area is bordering on Taishan, Luzhou and Xinzhuang, but the district itself is predominantly rural. There are not many interesting things to see here, but if you happen to find yourself here, I recommend you to see: West Cloud Temple and the Lingyun Monastery.
