--By Kristy Liu, translated by Cara
From downtown Hsinchu, go in the direction
of Nei Wan Jian Shan, then follow the little path opposite
Mei Hua Elementary School in Mei Hua Village and you
will discover a wonderful place to relax in a sea of
green mountains and valleys. Miss Ku and her family
run this recreational farm together. For a small fee,
visitors can camp here, go fishing and, under the owners'
guidance, enjoy a nice walk in the forest. You can also
enjoy barbecues and there is even a small pool for children
to play in. Call in advance and the owners can prepare
aboriginal-style barbecue ingredients for you. Home-stays
are available, too. For Hsinchu residents who want to
get out of town but don't want to go too far, this is
definitely a new holiday option. Meals need to be ordered
in advance and there are aboriginal-style set menus
available, priced around NT$300. Another special feature
not found elsewhere are the special natural drinks.
(Note: Road conditions are fine and were unaffected
by Typhoon Haitang.)
