    by yatingchen Written Feb 24, 2007

    Nei-Wan was once booming for wood collecting, but people forgot it in the past decades. To raise the local tourism, a local manga painter "Liu Shin Chin" offered his manga figure "Da Sheng Po" as the symbol of Nei-Wan and made it successfully.

    Nowadays there are some historical buildings stand on Nei-Wan street, but it is now commercial and lost its origin.

    Omas are wrapping Je Gian Hua Zhon

    by yatingchen Written Feb 24, 2007

    Nowadays many Hakka live in Nei-Wan. Their local food "Je Gian Hua Zhon" is famous for tourism.

    Je Gian Hua Zhon's ingrediance is like Taiwanese normal Zon-Zhi with rice, pork slices, mushrooms, peanuts, dried shrimps and soya bean sauce, but Je Gian Hua (flower) is extra added. They use leaves as covers and make the food with natural flavor. Tasty. Each costs 15 NTD only.

    Nei-Wan Station

    by yatingchen Written Feb 24, 2007

    Favorite thing: Nei-Wan station is the destination of Nei-Wan line from Hsin-Chu city station. It was used for wood transportation.

    Taiwanese railways had many sub-lines, but in the past decades the most of them stopped working. Fortunately, Nei-Wan sub-line is now still runnung. It connects Hsin-Chu city and Nei-Wan. Due to the tourism, the line is now busy and bring countless tourists to the small village.

    Nei-Wan cinema

    by yatingchen Updated Feb 24, 2007

    Favorite thing: Nei-Wan cinema's design is simple. It was warehouse for woods, but then re-built as cinema. It was the local's popular entertainment, but the glory faded.

    Because of its old looking (it's rare wooden cinema), some Taiwanese movies shot there. People value it as historical record so keep it and now use it as theme restaurant where one can have Hakka food and see old Taiwanese movies. Taking pictures in front of the building is necessary.

    Stella, Cindy and the bridge

    by yatingchen Written Feb 24, 2007

    Favorite thing: Nei-Wan Bridge connects the old street and hiking way. It's where one must walk through to experience the nature. In the distance one views high mountains in fog where the aboriginal people (Tai-Ya tribe) live in.
