Enjoying the Real Life of Southern Taiwan

The lotus root season is coming. Farmpacker invites you to experience the fun of picking lotus roots in Baihe this November and December to share the joy of a rich harvest with farmers. The activities held in this holiday will make you to get away from suburban uproar and enjoy the nature. Also, it’s a good chance to help the farmers in southern Taiwan. Meanwhile, Granduncle’s Home will provide you with a 3-day holiday (meals and accommodations are involved).

Hi farmpacker and welcome to forumosa.

A 3-day break in southern Taiwan sounds great, but would you be able to provide a little more info here in English. A Taiwanese friend of mine was just looking at your website and feels that while it's clear it's not a free holiday, it's not that clear how much one would actually be paying for the trip. My friend could be mistaken.

Any further info would be welcomed by prospective lotus-root pickers. :)

Go to the website, scroll down a little, then click on the "ENGLISH" button to the right of the page.

It is pretty well detailed there for you in English, with costs and how the whole thing works.

One would be hard pressed to come up with a question after looking through this site. Even in English.

:oops: Yes, I found the English page about 10 minutes ago and was just having fun reading it. The costs are all there.

ThreadKiller: I think should be able to count this as a 'thread' 'killed'. Good job for the silly question! Another one to check on your belt!

Just a helping hand since I have a tendency to kill a few threads also..........
