Dongshan River Route

Ya~I am Poyu Lin, Today, I’m in…..Yi Lan
I love to travel, love wandering around Taiwan
I’m taking the Taiwan Tourist Shuttle on the Dongshan River Route, bringing you to some fun places!
The Dongshan River Water Park in Yilan is Taiwan’s most successful example of a water management project designed to fit in with its surrounding environment. Completed in 1994, the park is now one of the area’s biggest tourist attractions.
Home to Taiwan’s premier venue for western-style rowing competitions, the park has also played host to some of the world’s biggest rowing competitions.
Works at the site have evened out the water level, so the shore blends into the water. If you have enough time, there are around 18 kilometers of safe and well-paved riverside bike paths where you can take in the scenery on two wheels. If you want to get even closer to the river, you can take a water bus!
One ticket on the water bus costs 75 NT dollars, which is around two and a half US dollars.
The water buses at the park are powered by solar panels which store energy in onboard batteries. The motors run quiet and don’t give off pollution. It only takes a few minutes to get to our destination, the National Center for Traditional Arts, and those who want to take pictures will definitely want to keep their cameras handy.
I’m setting off for the National Center for Traditional Arts…
The National Center for Traditional Arts is a good place to get to know Taiwanese popular culture, and it’s also a place that no visitor to Yilan should miss. The museum offers exhibitions and other amenities, across 24 hectares of grounds. Those who want to take their time can decide to spend a bit more time here.
Some of Taiwan’s best known old streets have been recreated here as if they were back in their prime. The streets have even been used as scenery in some movies.
Coming here, it feels like you’ve stepped back in time. Traditional Minnan-style buildings combined with Japanese colonial era western architecture create an atmosphere that brings you back to an earlier time in Taiwan. Besides snacks and games, there are also all kinds of DIY crafts classes for visitors to experience some old time charm.
You can make your own cotton candy to eat!
Or,You can also make your own umbrella.
It’s easy to lose track of time in these DIY classes. But even if you haven’t looked at the activity schedule, the sounds of excitement coming from outside will keep you from missing out on something else interesting.
Every month, the National Center for Traditional Arts invites a different arts group to be performers-in-residence. The Taoist god of culture and literature stars in this month’s act, which shows off some of Taiwan’s traditional culture and religion through a temple procession and festival welcoming the god.
Yilan is a place that’s full of charm. If you have the chance, you should definitely come and visit.I am Poyu Lin, enjoy your time in Taiwan! Ciao ~see you next time.

 

冬山河好好玩

Ya~,我是林柏妤,今天我在…宜蘭
我熱愛旅行,也喜歡在台灣趴趴走。
今天我要搭乘台灣好行冬山河線,帶大家去一些好玩的地方
冬山河是宜蘭,台灣河川整治最成功的範例,再加上結合地景設計,1994年完工的親水公園,現在是宜蘭人最引以為傲的觀光旅遊勝地。
這裡是台灣最具標準的西式划船比賽場域,每年的「國際名校划船賽」,就是在這裡舉行的。
經過整治後冬山河水位平穩,河岸邊看不到任何堤防,時間充裕的人,長約十八公里的河岸自行車道,相當平穩、安全,可以選擇騎自行車,慢慢欣賞沿岸風光。如果想更親近冬山河的人,還有水上巴士供你選擇。
水上巴士的票價是75台幣,大約是2塊多美金...
水上巴士的驅動動力是採用,太陽能板及蓄電瓶,沒有噪音和污染,航行只要幾分鐘就會抵達,國立傳統藝術中心,想要拍照的人,一定要隨時把相機拿在手上...
我現在要去國立傳統藝術中心了....
國立傳統藝術中心,是認識台灣民間文化的好地方,也到宜蘭不能錯過的景點,這裡兼具了文化展示,以及與遊憩功能,佔地高達二十四公頃,想要慢慢玩的人,可要多安排點時間。
這裡濃縮了全台灣著名老街,繁華重現的街道情境,同時也變成了電影的拍攝場景。
你可以做棉花糖來吃.
你也可以畫一支自己的雨傘
體驗DIY很容易讓人忘了時間,即使你沒注意到展演的時間表,外面喧嘩的吵雜聲,也不會讓你錯過觀賞的機會。
國立傳統藝術中心每個月,都會邀請不同的藝術團體,在園區裡進行駐園表演,掌管功名祿位的文昌帝君,是此次戲碼的主題,透過傳統的廟會陣頭、迎神踩街,展現台灣特有的慶典文化
宜蘭真是一個充滿魅力的地方,有機會的話,你一定要親自來體會,我是林柏妤,享受在台灣的時光,我們下次見!!
