     Nan Chuang Township, in northeastern Miaoli county, is a naturally attractive place that has yet to be polluted and ruined due to its isolated location. Nan Chuang then becomes a great retreat for urban people who desire to get away from the bustle of the world during holidays. After crossing the Nan Chuang Bridge, taking a left along the dragonfly mountain road and following the signs will lead you to this little Shangri-la ¡V Son Rose. The name of this resort literally means ¡§mountain road roses.¡¨ The owner explains that the name was derived from his daughter¡¦s liking for the poem, Walking into the Mountain, written by Chinese poet Tu Fu, and his own fond for roses. Mountains surround Son Rose and the decor consists of white walls, black tiles and red bricks, which makes Son Rose all the more unique.

     At the hillside entrance, with an entrance fee of NT$150 will cover dinning. This two story establishment, with simple food furnishing, has a couple wooden tables and chairs on the second floor balcony for customers to enjoy the spectacular mountainous scenery and the infinite green landscape. The specialty here is the rose coffee topped with a fresh rose bud with white cream. Could one imagine of a more luxurious coffee? Finally, one may enjoy the afternoon sunshine and an occasional gentle breeze. As this place has slowly become a famous tourist spot on the weekends, be prepared to see other visitors there or you might not enjoy your journey.
