1. Waipu Wangyu Valley, Rice Fields, WaiPu District, Taichung (忘憂谷, 外埔區, 台中)
- Rice field has been trending since the past few years.
- Waipu Wangyu Valley, rice field is a river plain sourced by Dajia River that runs through Taichung City, the central region of Taiwan.
- These are the popular ones for rice field trips.
- Hualien, Dongli Station (東里火車站, 花蓮)
- Hualien, Yuli Township (玉里, 花蓮)
- Taitung, Bolang Dadao aka Mr. Brown Avenue (伯朗大道, 台東)
- Taichung, Wangyugu Rice Valley (外埔忘憂谷, 台中)
- Yilan, SanqiNong Road (三奇農路, 宜蘭)
- Yilan, Lanyang Plain, (宜蘭平原, 宜蘭)
- Tainan, Wumile Community (無米樂社區, 台南)
- Taipei, Guandu Plain (關渡平原, 台北)
- Generally there are described as Golden Rice Field (黃金稻浪) by the local.
2. Songshan District, Taipei
- Taipei Songshan Airport, Raohe Street Night Market and a MRT train station called Songshan Station.
3. Taipei 101 (台北101)
- Taipei 101 was the tallest building from 2004 to 2008 in the world, dwarfing the surrounding low-rise and shop houses.
- Now, this building has new ‘friends’ and no longer a Lonely Giant of the Taipei Skyline.
4. Buyan Pavillion, Ruifang Dsitrict, New Taipei City (不厭亭)
- A short distant from Jiufen Old town. Scooter is the prefered transportation.
- Once or twice, I noticed grammers posting photos with cars parking at the side of the straight road. That’s not a very pleasant sight for photography.
5. Shuanglong Waterfall, ShuiYan Suspension Bride, Nantou (雙龍瀑布, 水源吊橋, 信義, 南投)
- A short hike including a flight of stairs.
- There are two waterfalls with steep cliff.
- Shuiyan Suspension bridge is 337 m in total length.
6. Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall, Taipei City (中正紀念堂)
- In front of Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall is the Liberty Square. A large area for public gathering.
- Directly opposite at the far end is the tall Chinese architectural arch named Liberty Square Gate. Similar struture for temple’s ceremonial arch but with more dragons, pheonics, kirins and deities.
- Liberty Square is flanked by National Concert Hall and the National Theater. Both grand buildings are located just a stone’s throw away.
7. Mujiashan, Sinhua District, Tainan City (新化木架山)
- Located in the suburban district of Tainan City.
- About 15 km from Tainan Station.
- Location is considered less developed with no tall buildings but plenty of plantations and grasslands for farmers.
- Wouldn’t recommend unless you have the availability of time and a scooter. No public transport available.
8. Rice fields, Yilan (稻米, 宜蘭)
- Please refer to #1 of this post for recommended 8 locations.
9. Bali Left Riverbank, Taipei City (八里左岸)
- A short ferry ride from Tamshui River Old Street.
All the photos are briefly described and not meant to be detailed.
Casual writing prose and information are in bite-sized.
It aims to give readers a quick idea of the names, locations, its background, travel tips, suggestions, alternative places and the Chinese name for easy references.
I have to catch up with next post for Instagram’s Multi-photos Post #5 and #6
