TAIPEI, Taiwan -- The Changhua County government will organize nine bus tour itineraries around the county from later in June to November, with two specifically planned for the physically challenged and senior citizens.
The guided tours have nine different themes, taking visitors to Taiwan's largest jasmine field in Huatan Township, a sock tourism factory in Ershui Township or historic family compounds in Xiushui Township, among others.
In designing the tours this year — the fifth year of the initiative — the county government put together tours targeting the elderly and physically challenged.
Among them, elderly participants will be shown around a forest park in Shetou Township and take a hot spring bath at another recreation area in the township before visiting a huge garden in Xizhou Township that was modeled after the acclaimed Fitzroy Gardens of Melbourne, Australia.
The bus tours, to be held from June 21 to Nov. 30, include half-day trips, one-day trips and two-day tours.
