Nan-chuo Old Street

This is a place which people tend to forget, the name of it is Nan-chuo old street. On this street the local cultural lifestyle and buildings of passed hundred years have preserved very well. In the past this street use to be very lively. But because the economy is not booming here, very many inhabitants move to big cities nearby to work. Thus the street declines more and more. But some inhabitants are not willing to give up. Take a bicycle and ride through this street to get the view of the most primitive life style.

On two of my pictures blacksmith, whose ancestors started here hundred years ago. He has maintained the technique of making typical local knives. Many people come to see this famous person with admiration. But this street is not only famous for its smith and knives. The place is also famous for music. Nan-guan and bei-guan are the Taiwan early time sound music styles. Both are similarly important parts of Taiwanese traditional culture. Hoped everybody has the opportunity to visit the place once.

    Solo Biking Routes: Ubud in Bali, Indonesia

    Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!
