2019雲林客家桐花祭「好客桐樂會」,將於4月13、14、20、21日在古坑桐花公園浪漫豋場,滿山遍野桐花陸續爭艷,加上整修完成的多項步道設施,將是遊客雲遊山林賞花喝咖啡的好去處。

TAIPEI (The China Post) – The 2019 Hakka Tong Blossom Festival in Yunlin will run on April 13-14 and April 20-21, featuring Tung flowers blooming all over the mountainous area. The newly renovated trails will let visitors immerse themselves in the romantic atmosphere while enjoying a cup of coffee in the renowned Hebaoshantonghua Park (荷苞山桐花公園) in Gukeng Township (古坑鄉).

雲林縣客家桐花祭如今邁入第11年,是雲林縣一年一度最大的客家生態嘉年華會,每年吸引將近10萬人次來雲林賞桐;古坑鄉的桐花在日據時代是和咖啡共生,而今的古坑咖啡不僅恢復往日的盛名,旅客除可欣賞桐花如雪繽紛景象外,更能體驗在桐花樹下野餐、露營、喝咖啡的浪漫氛圍。

Entering its eleventh year, Yulin Tong Blossom Festival is the county’s biggest annual Hakka cultural carnival, attracting nearly 100,000 visitors each year. The Tung oil trees were actually planted among coffee bushes back in the Japanese Colonial Era. Today, Gukeng’s unique coffee culture and history have become a popular attraction for lovers of the world-famous Arabica coffee. The coffee is smooth, not too bitter; it eventually brings the mild sweetness and mellowness into the mouth.

這次的「好客桐樂會」活動安排十分豐富,結合觀光休閒與社區漫遊概念,除能讓遊客欣賞桐花百般姿態及客家田園風光外,更融入當地文化藝術產業,包括客家藝文展演體驗、客庄食采小巿集及好客靚桐輕旅行等等適合民眾攜伴與親子共遊,讓喜愛桐花的朋友來賞桐花、遊雲林。

The county government has organized a series of events for the light-hearted festival, combining leisure travel and community roaming that offer travelers a chance to relish not just the blooming scene but also the Hakka rural scenery and local industries. During your stay, you can also check the Hakka art culture exhibitions, the local Hakka market, or participate in a day tour that teaches you how to roast and hand brew Gukeng coffee.
