A great family day out: Rhinoceros Beetle Farm
With attractions to suit both young and old alike, Rhinoceros Beetle Farm (獨角仙農場) is the perfect family day out. Located in Jhongpu (中埔), Chiayi County (嘉義縣), it is a must for those living nearby; and with kindergartens visiting from across the country, its appeal to the younger generation cannot be underestimated.
Aboriginal Culture Village shows tribal lifestyles
Central Taiwan's Nantou (南投縣) County has a wealth of glittering travel treasures embedded in its emerald mountains and lush jade-hued scenery. A shiny prospect for an educational and fun-filled day out is the Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village (九族文化村)in Yuchih Township (魚池鄉), near Sun Moon Lake.
The past is still alive in Lukang old town
As I followed the jostling crowd through the winding alleys of an old market street in Lukang (鹿港), centuries of history suddenly enveloped me from all sides. Carved doorways and windows, intricately designed arches over the main entrance, thin brick walls and red tiled road -- all speak of an era gone by when art and architecture blended seamlessly to create beautiful masterpieces.
An ecotourism trip to Wuling Farm
Summer is the season for flower blossoms and also is the season for travel, especially in Taiwan. The Nancy Yu Huang Foundation and The China Post held a two-day ecotourism trip to Wuling Farm (武陵農場) also called the (余夢燕新聞文教基金會) Wuling Recreation Area inside the Shei Pa National Park (雪霸國家公園) in the central part of the island two weeks ago.
Hsinkang welcomes annual Matsu trek
Every year, thousands of religious pilgrims make the long trek from Taichung (台中) County to Chiayi (嘉義) County -- and back again -- in honor of the goddess Matsu (媽祖).
Farms galore in Central Taiwan's Changhua County
Over the past several years, especially since Taiwan joined the World Trade Organization in 2002, local farmers have been forced to diversify in order to survive. Instead of growing rice, fruit or vegetables in the traditional manner, some now cultivate flowers or organic foods. Others think tourism is the way forward, and have turned their fields into leisure farms.
Cha Shan: Village of fire, water, wooden pavilions
As we drove our scooters into the little aboriginal settlement of Cha Shan (茶山,tea mountain) one mid Saturday afternoon in early March, we disturbed a ball game that was underway in the middle of the village main street.
See it before it's gone: Yunlin's Youcinggu
One of the delights of living in Taiwan is that, even after years of traveling within the island whenever I get the chance, there still seem to be plenty of interesting places I've not yet visited.
The shoveljaw carp of Danayi Gorge
About the only place many Chinese ever get to see live fish are at the local pet shop or swimming sadly around a tiny aquarium at a seafood restaurant waiting to be fished out, cooked and eaten.
Chilling in Tefuyie
According to the map, the tiny aboriginal village of Tefuyie lies smack-dab right on the Tropic of Cancer, yet the chilly January night we sat huddled around the bonfire just outside our home stay on the edge of this tiny settlement deep in the mountains was anything but tropical.
