East Rift Valley Tour

Welcome to TAIWAN, I am Poyu Lin
I love to travel ,love wandering around in Taiwan
Today, we are taking the Taiwan Tour Bus, to visit the East Rift Valley, have some great places for you
Lintianshan, Hualien Sugar Factory,come to Rareseed to drink milk
You definitely can’t miss this unique experience. SO come with me!
Following the amazing cypress aroma, we have arrived in the Lintianshan Forestry Cultural Area. It used to be the 4th largest forestry in Taiwan.During Japanese Occupation, this place was called「Molisaka
,In Japanese, it means “a hill full of trees”.
This used to be a very busy and vigorous area due to the booming forest industry. you can find the old housing made of cypress and the tracks on the ground still well preserved.
The remains of the platform, train, rice shop, infirmary, and many other Japanese architectures marked a once active community lived here. The whole area had even sustained 400-500 families and a population of over 2000.
Is that the movie projector?
Yas,in 1961 every Saturday and Sunday,they show the movie, free Charge,that is a big day to the local resident
Like a party for entertainment
You don’t necessarily learn history through reading. Travelling is a great channel. Here in the Cultural Area, you can sit down, enjoy a cup of coffee and sip a history of half-century and learn a lot from it.
You can also buy a stamp, pick a postcard for free, then send it to yourself. It’s like delivering a past greeting to the future you.
Right now, we are going to Hualien Sugar Factory to have a flavor of sugar sweet.
Ice cream so popular in Hualien Sugar Factory you have to give it a try! I picked flavor, “red bean and milk.”
Is awesome!
The Ice cream in Hualien Sugar Factory,it is really amazing,the taking water comes from the mountain springs in Masi mountain of the Central range
The Hualien Sugar Factory has been around for over 90 years. Except ice cream, you can also find a lot of Japanese style structures built in Japanese Occupation. They were designed for staff housing and now renovated and turned into modern hotels.
From the aroma of cypress, we learned about Lintianshan. From the taste of the ice cream, we learned more about Hualien Sugar Factory.What else is here to taste in the East Rift Valley?
That’s right is the taste of milk!. When you come to Rareseed Ranch, you got to meet the dairy cattle. Rareseed Ranch produces top quality milk that is well-received in Taiwan. This can be credited to the clean air, water and ecological system of the East Rift Valley. Here it provides the best living environment for the animals and plants.
I have never tried fresh squeezed milk. I wonder how it tastes?is incredible! Do you come to the East Rift Valley and experience,different great flavors by yourself!I am Poyu Lin, enjoy your time in Taiwan! Chow

花東縱谷輕旅行(花蓮)

歡迎來到台灣,我是林柏妤
我熱愛旅行,也喜歡在台灣趴趴走
今天我們要搭台灣觀巴,前進花東縱谷,分享幾個好地方給大家
林田山、花蓮觀光糖廠、來瑞穗牧場喝牛奶
你絕不能錯過,這麼特別的體驗,跟我走吧
跟著檜木的氣味,我們來到了林田山林業文化園區,這裡曾是經是台灣第四大的林場,在日治時期,日本人稱這裡叫「森?」,這句日本話的意思,是山坡上長滿樹林
這裡曾經有著繁榮的景象,原因在於林木業的興盛,你可以發現檜木房子的老房子與火車軌道,都是當初保存下來的
月台、火車、米店、醫務室、許多的日式建築,這些遺蹟,帶我們體驗這過去的光陰,這邊曾經聚集了四、五百個家庭,人口數更高達兩千多人
那是以前的電影放映機嗎?
是的,在西元1961年,每個星期六和星期日,會放映電影,完 全是免費的,對當地人來說是個大日子
像是個同樂會
有些歷史故事,不一定在書本上讀的到,透過旅行的方式,來到這文化園區,就連坐下來喝杯飲料,也可以閱讀這裡超過半世紀的過往記憶
你可以在這裡買張郵票,免費選一張自己喜歡的明信片,然後寄給自己,有一種像是過去寄給未來的你
接下來,我們要前進花蓮觀光糖廠,尋找「糖」味道
冰淇淋,在花蓮觀光糖廠非常受歡迎,你一定要來吃,我點了紅豆鮮乳冰淇淋的口味
真是太讚了
花蓮觀光糖廠的冰淇淋,總令人讚不絕口,特別之處在於採用了,中央山脈馬錫山的泉水
花蓮觀光糖廠已經有90幾年的歷史了,在這裡除了吃冰,還可以瞧見糖廠裡,大規模的日式建築是日治時期所留下來,以前是作為員工宿舍,如今轉變為舒適的精品旅館
我們從檜木的味道,了解了林田山,從冰淇淋的味道,認識了花蓮糖廠,還有什麼味道,在花東縱谷呢?
沒錯,就是鮮乳的味道,來到瑞穗牧場,就一定要認識這邊的乳牛,瑞穗牧場所生產的高優質鮮乳,在台灣是非常的有名,因為花東縱谷有好的空氣、好的水質、好的生態資源,提供了最好的生長環境,給動物和植物們
我從未品嚐過現擠的新鮮牛奶,不知道味道會是如何?真是濃醇香,來到花東縱谷,這麼多的好味道,你一定要親自來體驗,我是林柏妤,享受在台灣的時光!我們下次見!
