Lanyang Plains one day tour

Welcome to Taiwan,I am Poyu Lin
I love to travel,love wandering around Taiwan
I'm reading Jimmy・s picture book.
There is a place makeing the story real
It・s Yilan!
Jimmy is a famous Taiwanese illustrator. His charming picture books have been translated into more than ten languages and are sold all over the world. Yilan Train Station used to have a plain brick exterior, but as if with the magic of Jimmy, it・s been turned into Taiwan・s cutest train station.
I think the passengers waiting here must always get the time wrong, since they are so cute!
The old dormitories on the left side of the station have been repurposed as Jimmy Square. Whether or not you・ve read his books, if you walk into this colorful dream world you・ll be like me, unable to stop moving.
If you have Google translate the name of the park, you will come out like
SEGDu Du Dang
But the name is from a traditional Yilan song, so I・ll use the local pronunciation, Du~Du~Dang~ That・s right! Du Du Dang Forest!
Another unmissable photo opportunity lies across from the train station, where Jimmy・s Starry Starry Night Train hangs 14 meters up in the air under a forest of steel beams. The feeling of being able to sit up there must be different for every visitor.
Speaking of tradition, Yilan has a special drink that・s been passed down for over two hundred years. It・s a type of red cordial called :hungluh chiew;. The Yilan County government holds festivals for the beverage, which it・s even designated as the official county drink. As the first drink in Taiwan to be recognized like that, it・s easy to see that :hungluh chiew; holds a special place in the hearts of the people of Yilan.
The ingredients in an-chiew are red yeast rice and sticky rice. The people of Yilan have nicknamed the drink :red wine.; I・m going to have a drink, to see how it・s different from real red wine.
It・s smooth,mellow and has sweet aftertaste ,Not bad
:Hungluh chiew; is the star product of Yilan Distillery, which was built in 1909. The distillery offers a range of delicious drinks to taste in the surrounding of some beautiful Japanese-era architecture. Tourists shouldn・t miss it! For example this building is the distillery・s administrative office, which blends western and Japanese architectural influences. It was even listed as one of Taiwan・s 100 most notable old buildings.
It・s so beautiful, that I almost feel :drunk; looking at itK
Aside from being used in distilling alcohol, red yeast rice is part of many innovative Yilan foods.
I just order several kinds of food,they・re all made out of red yeast,rice cakes,sausage and Hungluh Chiew boild egg,let・s have tryK
Or you may have this to cool of in summer,Hungluh Chiew rice cake popsicle, If you have a chance, you should definitely come and try it, I am Poyu Lin, enjoy your time in Taiwan! Ciao~see you next time.
