Forumosa Camping Trip Weekend! (July 17/18)

Post your northern Taiwan events here! (Events in Taipei and Xinbei should be posted in the Taipei / Xinbei Events forum.)
Forum rules
This forum is for the listing, promotion, and discussion of the specifics of events in northern Taiwan (but not Taipei/Xinbei). Please include a date in your title (e.g. 3/25) and - in the post - an address in English if possible. If you are providing the information in the form of an online photograph/flyer/poster, it is also advisable to provide the essential details in text as well, so as to facilitate ease of cut-and-paste.

As we wish to encourage people to post their events here, negative commentary isn't welcome in the Events forums. You are, however, more than welcome to post the same debate-encouraging negative criticism of bands, artists, etc. in the Arts & Entertainment or other appropriate forums.

Please PM the Moderators or Admin if you have any concerns or queries.

Very pleasant weekend. Had the whole site (and the river) to ourselves, just Chung and our spouses. :thumbsup: Will definitely visit this spot again.

No cabins here. No need for a/c up there. It's quite cool at night. You just need a tent with good ventilation and to camp in good shade. :whistle:

Strange as it may seem, I've noticed that some folks prefer the penetrating embrace of the morning sun. I guess they're hoping to get an early start on their tan. :wink:

About a two hour drive from Taipei. The resort just down the road from this campsite has cabins as well as segregated hot spring pools which should appeal to a pampered spouse. :wink: Also a few other good hot spring rooms and outdoor complexes in area and a good places to eat. While the wife soaks take the kid up the river to swim in natural pools.
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”
