Sandwich Trips

Taiwan is an island country. In the past was been colonized by Spain, the Netherlands and Japan, and received influence from both eastern and western cultures. The diverse culture and landscape of Taiwan as well as the friendly people living here, make it one of the most welcoming countries of Asia. There are 22 counties total, and 4 main regions divided between the north, central, south and the sparsely populated east. The northern part of Taiwan near Taipei has well developed public transportation, which saves time and money for visitors, making it a very convenient travel destination. The rich culture, mountain ranges and coasts of central Taiwan offer a great environment for relaxation or exploring nature, which is great for young visitors and students. The vibrant atmosphere of the south offers visitors a rich natural landscape with incredible historical forts and castles that tell Taiwan’s rich cultural history. For travelers that want to experience a taste of “the real Taiwan”, the south should not be missed. The vibrant natural beauty of the eastern region is one of Taiwan’s best kept secrets.

One Day As a Fisherman

  • 2015/05/17
  • NTD 1300

By going to the local sites and learning on site, participants can better understand the subtleties of Taiwan’s natural environment. On this trip we will experience stone weir fishing and learn about the ingenuity and wisdom of early fishing communities in Penghu. The stone weirs are one variety of an early fish trap made of stone. When the tide rises, schools of fish would enter the weir, and when the tide receded they would be trapped and easily caught by the fishermen. The weirs were constructed from stones found nearby and were made to withstand the tide and typhoons. The remaining examples of this ancient fishing technique are limited to Okinawa, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines and some Polynesian islands. This trip will immerse you in the lifestyle and experience a day in the life of a traditional fisherman.
