Taixing

Where can I go?

Taixing was called “Lizailio” (grass hut) in the late Qing Dynasty because it is said some people cut timber here to make ploughs and built grass huts to live in, and also later called Liyuanliao. There is an unmanned station here, Liyuanliao, on the Alishan Mountain Railway, but trains don’t stop, the tracks left in place to remind people of the heyday of the railway.

 

Taiping is rich in culture and scenery and, situated on the main road between Taiping and Ruili scenic areas, attracts a lot of visitors, having a well-developed tourism industry; tourism is the main source of income of the villagers.

 

The village chief is confident that the conscientious efforts of the villagers to develop tourism will continue to bear fruit and hopes that the establishment of Alishan National Scenic Area will lead to strengthened promotion of Taixing Village internationally to attract more international visitors, lead to more investment in new scenic spot development and that guidance can be given to homestay proprietors so more international visitors are attracted.
