Taoyuan Fairy Valley is a big garden park in the moutain. The park is well maintained and decorated. The grand view of many flowers is the flower field is also quite impressive. When we visited there in early February, they are planting the tulips. The flowers demonstrated are changed according to the blooming seasons.
Mei Tuay Shan was a stop at the middle of the Ro Ma Highway. It is a good place to have the bird view of the Shimen Dam. The entrance fee for the adult is NTD 20 (About USD 0.70). They provide the coffee and meal at the weekend but not at the day of our visit.
Hsikou Hanging Bridge is at the bottom of the Hsikou Plateau. The bridge itself looks old but it is still a solid one. Across the river from the hanging bridge, you can reach the famous Chiao Pan Shan Park. The water under the hanging bridge is clear and green. Besides the hanging bridge, the sign read that you could take the ferry from there to the Shimen Dam but we did not see any on our visit. Maybe they only work on the holidays.
You might have some suprises when you drive off the main highway to the village. We saw the pine tree woods besides the dam.
