Last weekend I went with my wife and her family to the Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village [九族文化村] in Yuchih Township. Right now is a great time to go because it’s the park’s Cherry Blossom Festival [九族櫻花祭].
There are more than 3,000 Cherry Blossom trees in the park. We got to the park early to avoid traffic, but the park also looks spectacular for anyone making a trip during the evening [here’s a link to Flickr’s most interesting pictures from the event, you’ll see a few evening shots on the first page.].
I took the previous Daily Photo panorama at this pond. I hope to be a little better about posting Daily Photos next week.
There are a handful of rides and roller coasters in the park. From this picture taken in the park’s European-style Garden, you can see the park’s U.F.O. Drop ride:
On the way back to the car we noticed a bunch of carriages sitting in the parking lot that will be used on the Sun Moon Lake Ropeway, which will link Sun Moon Lake and the Formosan Aboriginal Culture Village.
There’s information on the park’s English website on getting there by car. On the Chinese website there is a link for a deal for a bus ride from Taichung High Speed Rail Station to the park [bus ticket + admission for $750NT].
I have a few other pictures from the day on my Flickr.
