House of Ahan ｜ Ahan and Shujing．Embarking on Their Journey of Life Together and Sharing Each Cheerful Moments
After greeting us, the host Ahan adeptly introduced the lodging with a bright smile: “Japanese took the Taiwan red cypress and yellow cypress away, but also brought Yamaha, Suzuki (both scooter brands), and sashimi with wasabi to Taiwan.” As a natural humorist, Ahan spoke with funny punchlines at times and made everyone burst into laughter. On the side, the hostess Shujing was busy managing the chores of the lodging in a casual but organized way. Applying their own expertise, the couple built their ideal lodging in Rueili, Chiayi.
Farmland B&B ｜ Julie’s Family．Fields of Love Cultivated by a Family
Walking into the courtyard house with two wings like open arms, you are like walking into the warm embrace of the host family of Farmland B&B. A lodging replete with strong bonds and loving cares lends you the cozy and warm feeling just like home. In the beginning, each member of this family of four carried his or her own set of duties: Qing He the father was in charge of the farmland behind the house, Su Hui the mother applied her culinary and flower arranging skills, while James, Julie’s older brother, served as the art director, and Julie, an art teacher herself, was the one who put every detail of the B&B into implementation. Originally, they all had different visions for the lodging, but the final version came out following the head of the house—Qing He’s blueprint, as he said, “The design of traditional courtyard house can bring each family member together, as when you step out the room in the morning, you’d be interacting with other family members and thus build a strong bond.” The whole family was dedicated to the B&B and attended to all the design details with abundant love.
Goo Dian Coffee House ｜ Yuren and His Family．Sharing the Simple Beauty of the Mountains
In the afternoon, while appreciating the magnificence of Lala Mountain, a humble greeting caught our attention from behind. With a smile on his face and wearing a casual outfit, Yuren gives people a sincere and carefree impression. Not wearing any make-up, his youthful mother also carries a pure character. Her actual age was the first surprise we received here, which is to say, the simple yet abundant life in the mountains does not seem to carve any mark of worry upon their faces. Yuren and his family generously share this place and enthusiastically meet every traveler from afar.
