旅程亮點

A Mountain Stream Estate-Song Ju (May)

Stay in the Tea King Premium Villa

Nestled among the mountains of Nantou, Song Ju is predominantly themed around the classical architectural style of the Tang and Song dynasties. Independent housing and Japanese style gardens immerses one into a Chinese landscape painting along with tranquil and elegant secluded Premium Villas. The estate includes a natural hot spring pool, a green tunnel, tea recliners, and a quiet pavilion, all where the burbling of a stream resounds softly around, bathing one in the essence of nature.

Evolving the tastes of Song dynasty scholars to an elegant and exquisite lifestyle today

● Qushui Liushang (Floating Wine-cups on a Winding Stream). This is an activity that the ancient Chinese Scholars participated in. They sat along a winding stream and then put their wine-filled cups into the water and whomever the cup stopped in front of, had to drink up the content. This later evolved to not only drinking the wine, but also making an impromptu poem
● The Four Arts of Life (siyi) of the Song dynasty Chinese scholars includes the arts of tea brewing, incense burning, painting appreciation, and flower arranging. All of these are the basic arts the ancient literati needed in pursuing an elegant way of life.

Yuchih Township hides 100-year-old pottery art; touchingly,the kiln master persists on firing up the kiln

● Before the Japanese occupation era, the kiln industry in the Yuchih area was the leading town in Taiwan.
● Master potter, Mr. Zhuang retreated to his hometown within the mountains to work on his art when he was still middle-aged.
