    We enjoyed viewing this site although we would've benefitted from an English speaking guide. We just walked around the site and still enjoyed seeing it. The 1999 921 earthquake did extensive damage...

    Why? Simply why you have to waste time

    Nothing to see and nothing to do... 15 minutes of visit, maybe for a Taiwan citizen is different. Far from the city and nothing around... Don't waste money and time

    Not worth the effort to go if you're not Taiwanese

    You can only see the house via a guided tour, which is only provided in Chinese. My boyfriend didn't understand Chinese, so I tried translating for him. But even I had trouble understanding the guide...

    Personally, it has been the best attraction of Taiwan. I love history and what I wanted to see is this kind of old historical place that has survived from the period of the dinasties until today...
