When you hear Chiayi County, what’s the first thing
you think of?I am in Chiayi.
Not only is Chiayi the only county in Taiwan with
three national scenic areas, it’s the home of a
city known worldwide for its verdant surroundings.
Here is not only a lovely park,but also the Chiayi
Performing Arts Center!The Chiayi Performing Arts
Center opened in 2004, This isn’t just a theatre
to take in performances, it’s also a favorite place
for locals to just come and relax.Looking at this
elegant space framed by a pavilion and covered walkway,
Actually, this is Chiayi's center of artistic talent.We
hope to make it more connection with our hometown,
to develop more local culture.
The international-grade exhibition and performance

a place for high-level arts groups to stay in residence.
The resulting collaborations are unique to Chiayi
Now, take a guess what characters I bumped into

hand and the head and her eyes
May I try?Ok, of course.Recently the’ve been planning
to shoot a short film about traditional glove puppet
theatre, and the Performing Arts Center, with its
beautiful surroundings, is the perfect setting for
After my amazing trip to the Chiayi Performing Arts
Center, I noticed a nearby farm with plenty of greenery
and an air of culture – the Minxiong Kumquat Factory.
From 1960 through the present day, three generations
of the same family have poured their livelihoods
into kumquat products, and have carefully preserved
their estate as a cultural museum.Here, you can
also make your own kumquat sauce!
I think I can finish loaves of bread with this sauce.
Seeing me smiling through my day in Chiayi, aren’t
you itching to make a visit of your own? I am Poyu
Lin, enjoy your time in Taiwan! Ciao ~
