Wanggong, Changhua

We・re going on a day tour of Changhua today in a Taiwan Tour Bus.
Today I want to tell you about a seaside town called Wanggong.
To get there, we・re on a Taiwan Tour Bus, a government supported tour that includes insurance, pickup at your hotel or a major transportation depot, a tablet with audio guides in English, Chinese, Korean and Japanese, and sometimes even an English speaking guide.
Wanggong is known for oyster farms and this is a great place to visit because you can experience how it・s done!
We're kind of in a hurry because the tide is rising. When the tide rises, that・s good for the oysters because it・s feeding time, it・s lunch time, it・s dinner time. But it・s not so good for us because everything・s going to be underwater.
About 1/4 of the oysters in Taiwan come from Wanggong. Supposedly because the water here is quite clean, these are the best tasting oysters in Taiwan.
So how did Wanggong end up an oyster farming community? The story is, in 1639 two brothers who were oyster farmers from Tongan, Fujian immigrated to Taiwan. They set up shop here in Wanggong and everything worked out like it did back home, and the rest is history.
These snails eat oysters. Farmers pick these off as much as they can. So what do you do with these snails? Well, people eat them! They・re supposed to be quite tasty and are worth even more than the oysters themselves!
Oh we should go. The tide・s really come in. Lunch time for them, lunch time for us!
We just made with oyster shells and other parts a black faced spoonbill!
So with oysters, you can eat the meat and use the shell for DIY, right? Did you know that you can also use these for home security? Because they make quite a bit of noise, if you put them around the perimeter of your home and someone walks on them, you・ll hear them coming. This has been a really fun trip. You should come!
