A Restful Mountain Retreat – Tainan & Alishan
People in the south of Taiwan live at a different pace than their northern city-dwelling brethren. They are extremely amiable, people-oriented, always smiling and ready to help out a stranger. The people are the primary reason that tourists continue coming back to these cities in Southern Taiwan – their passion, friendliness, and helpfulness. Come experience the South of Taiwan together with us.
The greatest attractions and features of Southern Taiwan are all to be found in Tainan: the former cultural capital of the Chinese-Fujianese population in Taiwan. Tainan is full of unique and beautiful temples, and is home to some of the most interesting cultural customs on our beautiful island.
Being one of Taiwan’s top three destinations, Alishan features a highland landscape with various tourist sites dotted along the its abundance forest trails. Two Sisters Pond, Thousand Year Cypresses, Zhushan viewing platform are ones that attract the most visitors. Do not miss taking the Alishan forest train that runs through a charming mountain valley. Depending on the season, you can view deep green landscapes or cherry blossoms during the train ride.
Historic Treasure Landmarks – Anping Old Fort & Fort Provintia
If you are interested in learning about Taiwanese history, religious customs and traditional life, you can’t miss out on Tainan. As the former capital of Taiwan, almost every corner of the streets in town leave visitors with a sense of the old-time small-town atmosphere of years gone by. Tainan has the highest concentration of temples and shrines, remaining red-brick walls, and defensive forts such as Anping Old Fort and Fort Provintia. Many have found walking in this engaging city akin to flipping through the pages of a Taiwanese history book.
A Journey to the Great Eastern Philosophy – Confucius Temple
Visit Confucius Temple and try to find which of his students excelled the “six arts”－rites, music, archery, charioteering, calligraphy and mathematics. If you have any tests coming up in the near future, you might also consider visiting the temple to honor Confucius like most local college students do around finals!
