Bamboo Bridge B&B- countryside living just north of Tainan

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

Bamboo Bridge B&B- countryside living just north of Tainan

Postby chikuguy » 18 Nov 2006, 10:23

We’re a small, stylish B&B situated only 25 minutes from Tainan City, and easily accessible from the number 17, number 19 and freeway 1. Situated in a small Taiwanese village, we offer a tranquil and cozy setting for our guests to relax in. Bamboo Bridge (竹敲村) is also an ideal location to explore the scenic sights north of Tainan, including the Blackfaced Spoonbills scenic area, Salt mountain, the scenic beach and boat trips to oyster beds are also available. We’re also near the (obviously?) misnamed “secret beach” which is a popular water playground for kitesurfers and windsurfers.

For the month of November we have an en-suite room with a double bed available. The room features:
A double bed
Views of the scenic garden
Large en-suite bathroom
Wi-fi access
Television with all the cable channels
A comfortable sofa

In addition guests are welcome to utilize the downstairs facilities, which include a comfortable lounge and dining area. Outside there is pot-plant filled patio with chairs and sun umbrellas, affording views of the garden and the beautiful sunsets, which are common out here. The November room rate is 2000NTD$, breakfast (sausage, bacon, eggs, toast, salad. orange juice and coffee) and sundowner cocktails for 2 persons included.
The room comfortably sleeps 2 people, but the sofa can be converted to a bed. If you have children, this might appeal to you, and then the room can sleep up to 4. Should you choose this option, the room rate will remain the same, but the additional 1 or 2 persons will have to pay a surcharge of 100-200NTD$ for breakfast, depending on their age.
*Also have a baby cot available, should you have an infant.

For visitors who happen to be in the area in the afternoon, we’re offering tea, coffee and scones, which can be eaten in our stylish dining area, or outside under the sun umbrellas. Beers and cocktails will also be available.

Lastly, evening meals can also be catered for. Some guests from further north or south, who wish to explore Tainan City, find it convenient to have their evening meal in Tainan, but for guests wishing to relax from Tainan itself, and thus not wanting to possibly travel back into Tainan, we will offer an evening meal. It will be a fixed menu for that certain day, so if you’re interested to choose this option, please call or email me for details.

Thanks for your time.

Hellish lot of clickthroughs and membership nonsense to wade through to get to any pics, but it looks nice -- very cosy and homely.

Really? I can't be bothered to sign in.

chikuguy, how about posting on Flickr so they are accessible to all?
“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.”

Otherwise...I will consult the Tai-tai about a visit here.

It's a special herb used in Chinese medicine - goes particularly well in chocolate brownies. :D
