    At Wutai Heights, putting on Rukai Tribe colorful traditional costumes, and become a Rukai Prince or Princess for a Day.

    Having lunch of Rukai Harvest Festival cuisine

    Artist Community, Sintered Stone Lane

    Stepping on the stone garden path and using pottery as the guidance, “Z” shaped alleys that follow the slope resembling the Deinagkistrodon acutus (Chinese Sharp-nosed Viper) which is worshiped by Rukai Tribe.

    The carvings along the alleys describe many stories of Rukai people; the women who are weaving, the warriors who are practicing the exploit-praising ritual etc.  Appreciating the artistic attainments of the Rukai Tribe is the best way to understand their culture.

    Wutai Presbyterian Church

    Built by the late Rukai artist Dubalan, you will be surprised that there are such stone buildings on the mountains of Taiwan, and feel the epitome of the old castle within the mountains of Europe.

    Dragonfly Beads Art Studio

    Tjaruzaljum Remereman, an indigene of Paiwan, had gathered a group of aboriginal women in order to pass down Paiwan culture – the usage of ancient lazurite. They are responsible for the production of lazurite and are also the teachers of DIY classes. After experiencing the DIY class and waiting for the glazed beads to burn, we’ll move to the second floor – coffee shop. It is pleasant to have a cup of coffee while waiting for your own work!

    Wanchin Basilica of the Immaculate Conception

    The church was originally constructed as a simple mud church in 1861. It’s the first basilica church in Taiwan. On December 9, 1984, the church was conferred the title of basilica by Pope John Paul II, making it the first church in Taiwan to receive such title. In the light of the history, the value of Wanchin Basilica of the Immaculate Conception cannot be replaced!

    Seminyak Live Shrimp Landscape Restaurant

    Walking around the restaurant you’ll get a feel of “Bali”. Surrounded by the Bald Cypresses and a row of pavilions, it’s a beautiful restaurant with a light atmosphere. They deliver high-quality seafood, and the cuisine there is much more than tasty. We highly recommend the shrimp dishes, they were fresh and super flavorful. Must try!

    L’Occitane

    Before we depart, you will receive a small beam pocket and a L’Occitane travel set. Mens’ travel pockets including razors, toothbrushes, and toothpaste. Whilst womens’ travel pockets are including hair clips, toothbrushes, and toothpaste. L’Occitane travel set is practical, beautiful, and easy to carry. These are all specially made by our manufacturers, just in case you are unfamiliar with the cleaning products from the hotel.


    EVIAN Natural Mineral Water

    “When I travel to different places, the most noticeable thing is the lack of drinkable water. Therefore, I have prepared EVIAN mineral water from the French Alps, especially for the trip,” said Mr. Tai.

    Wine

    “I chosen by myself, red wine originating from France, Spain, and Chile. I shall give it away to my lovely customers. Since I know that you will probably have had a tiring day, I have prepared these lovely gifts for you, and wish you can relax and have sweet dreams,” said Mr. Tai.

    Fu Hang Soy Milk

    Fu Hang Soy Milk, established in 1958, one of the wildly popular names when you search for Taiwanese breakfast. Our company chairman, Mr. Tai said, “Whenever I come here for breakfast, there is always a long queue! However, this time, you don’t need to wait; I will prepare the delicious breakfast for you on the tour bus/train. You should try their popular dish – Thick Clay Oven Rolls. It is definitely my first choice for a breakfast in Taipei.”
