    House made of clay-> a sad story

    by yatingchen Written Feb 24, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cindy and Stella eating the wall

    Favorite thing: The house is not tourism spot, but the holes on it caught our eyes.

    As we observed the walls made of clay, a Hakka old woman passed by us. She said that she is the neighbor and then described us a story: a 50-year-old woman spent her childhood there. As child her family was poor and she had often hunger. Sometimes she was so hungry and that shaved the clay from wall, chewing in mouth. She fand the taste like black suger. Her family was worried that she would be sick. Fortunately not, she is married and has 3 daughters.

    ** In the past time clay is made of natural material**

    Din-Dong bridge restaurant

    Favorite thing: Facing Zhi-Tien-Kong at you left hand, there is a famous small bridge made of stone. When you walk on the bridge, it sounds Ding-Dong. In the past the local heared it and knew the enemies come. It's easy defence way.

    Bei-Pu Old Street

    Bei-Pu old street

    Favorite thing: Bei-Pu's main inhabitants are Hakka. In the 19th century they came to Bei-Pu (pioneers) and worked on the land.

    The old street keeps its origin. Many old-typed restaurants and Hakka food stands (Le-Cha, vegetable bread, Muachi etc) welcome your visit.

  • Mountains around but beautiful.

    by johnchiang168 Written Feb 25, 2003

    Favorite thing: During Chinese New Year, all the people were together and have some little shops along the street. Taste something special around. Most of language were spoken "Ha
    Ka", that's quite different from Mandarin and Taiwanese.

    Fondest memory: So many nice places to visit but lack of time.
    One or two days are not enought to visit.

    During winter time, it is good time to take a "Spring Bath".
