[Travel] Taiwan Day #04
<Post Scheduled on 19/09/2011>
In the morning, we headed to 佛光山 literally “Buddha’s Light Mountain”
Since this was too, a mountain like structure…
This is what it looks like from the top!
We then visited a tea plantation
they produced Macha (Green tea powder) and they recommend us to mix it with yogurt for consumption!
That surprisingly did taste good by the way.
I then hijacked their tea plantation. Posed with the tea plantations. Decide i would be a farmer for life.
Little Swiss Garden
We then climbed another mountain by bus (Taiwan has alot of mountains!)
To visit a place called Qing Jing Farm (Average Temp – 24 Degrees Celsius) HELL YEAH!!!
I have to say, this place would be awesome for figure photography.
Because of its Northern European atmosphere, The Small Swiss Garden has been called “Taiwan’s Little Switzerland” and “Paradise in the Mist;” hence the name. The Qingjing cloudy mists at dawn is like a perfect painting; looking at it from a distance, it is as if the clouds and mists were floating, slowly coming closer, becoming one with the clouds on top of the distant mountains. The pure unadulterated beauty of such a view literally takes one’s breath away. Someone once said, “the view of Qingjing Farm is very similar to Northern Europe. Here verdant peaks are like doors and a sparkling bay is like a violin. With this breathtaking view, it is no wonder that the fame of the Small Swiss Garden spreads far and wide.
