As is tradition around Chinese New Year, the ECCT has arranged a special cultural tour. This year’s tour to Changhua County will combine visits to two temples and a state-of-the-art hospital with a lunch with Changhua Country Magistrate Wang Hui-mei and senior county government officials.
The event will begin with lunch at the famous glass Husheng Matzu Temple, where guests will meet with Magistrate Wang and officials from the Changhua County Government. At the lunch, Magistrate Wang Hui-mei will make remarks touching on her main priorities, which are improving long-term care for county residents, developing and promoting agriculture and improving transport infrastructure, including building a light rail system. Changhua County also boasts the largest number of locations slated for the development of offshore wind farms.
After lunch, guests will be taken on a tour of the Chang Bing Show Chwan Memorial Hospital, slated as a showcase institution for providing long-term care. Inaugurated in 2006, the hospital is equipped with advanced medical equipment, and staffed by a high-quality medical health team aimed at providing user-friendly services integrated with food, clothing, housing, transport, education and recreation elements.
After the hospital tour, guests will be transported to the Lukang Longshan Temple, where they will be given a guided tour. The temple is regarded as one of the most beautiful temples in the whole of Taiwan as well as one of the best remaining examples of a building constructed by settlers from Fujian province during the Qing dynasty in the 17th century with traditional Fujian-style architecture.
Changhua County is home to descendants of immigrants from China’s Fujian Province, creating a culture of developing classical Chinese artists and calligraphers as well as many successful small and medium-sized enterprises. Many of Taiwan’s traditional businesses which made early inroads into mainland China, originated in the county. Today, the county remains the home of successful companies including bicycle maker Merida (美利達) and tyre manufacturer, Maxxis (正新橡膠), as well companies in the automotive parts, food and flower business sectors.
