Yulin County, the so-called “capital of agriculture”, is home to miscellaneous grown products and plenty of off-the-radar travel hotspots.
Haven’t got a plan for the coming Mid Autumn Festival? You might as well pay a visit to the often-overlooked place, Yunlin, and take this chance to get a taste of its famous Yunlin pomelos!
華山小天梯&情人橋 | Huashan Lover’s Bridge
Huashan Village, located in the GuKeng Township, is hailed as “the birthplace of coffee.” As one of the favorite getaway spots for locals, the hills are covered with coffee trees and the trails accommodate people of all ages.
The Lover’s Bridge allows only one pedestrian to pass each time and has recently gained traction online for its mysteriously Southeast-Asia-forest-like settings and the thrill of passing the shaky overpass.

成龍濕地 ｜ChengLong Wetlands
ChengLong Village was once the victim of a heartbreaking rural exodus and a ruthless natural disaster, which nearly led to a relocation crisis.
Fortunately, with the support from the government and the participation of villagers, the community has transformed it into an artistic village and has drawn countless tourists to enjoy the beauty of the wetlands which breed a wide range of unique plants and animal species.

台西海園海螺圓環｜Taixi Conch Roundabout
Taixi Conch Roundabout is not only a well-known landmark in Taixi but also the largest round, sphere-like installation art piece in Taiwan.
Standing at 10 feet tall, the tremendous conch art piece is made of up to some 5000 conchs of 50 or so different species.
The vibrant design along with the use of actual conchs successfully brought the installation to life and bore resemblance to a fairy tale character Magic Conch Shell.
This is also a beloved location for the locals to enjoy the sunset.
