Changhua 彰化市 is the smallest county located in centre of Taiwan and is home to the Babuzu aborigines tribe for centuries. History has it that Changhua earned the nickname of “bamboo town” when a bamboo fortress was created during tumultuous times to protect against invaders.
Despite its less than developed area as compared to the city, Changhua is known as the granary of Taiwan as it possesses very fertile soil for agricultural purposes. Tourism is a booming business for such a natural and undisturbed place to visit the centuries old historical architectures, picturesque mountain and agricultural landscapes, have a taste of tasty local snacks and fresh produces as well as to learn more about Taiwan history.
Changhua could be said to be the place where it all began. Be prepared to feast on and view everything in an au naturel perspective.
