Welcome To Taiwan (Synopsis Only):

Run Into the Arms of Ershui

Ershui, a place you’ll definitely fall in love with. If you can give animals personal space and do not feed them, you can stroll alongside a Formosan macaque. If you visit during the winter season and enjoy fruit picking, you can handpick sweet and juicy Imperial Pomelos that are as big as basketballs.

Learn about Ershui through the footsteps of the locals. Step into the home of former Vice President Hsieh Tung-min, and see a life of simple pleasures. Enter a century-old soy sauce factory and work through the steps of washing and boiling of black beans, brining and sealing of cylinders, before inhaling the mellow aroma of paste that has been fermented for over 200 days. Walk the fields early in the morning with the farmers and weigh the rice harvest with bare hands. Make healthy bread loaves infused with creativity. Produce an ink wash painting with the help of an Ershui inkstone.

The 300-year-old Babao Canal forms an interwoven network of channels in Ershui, irrigating the Changhua plain, thus ensuring the wellbeing of its people. Besides worshipping the giving canal, you should also participate in the annual Water Running Festival. Pay tribute to our forefathers and light up the festival by running down the canal in your most striking outfit.
