Aowanda is famous in red Maple Leaf and Sakura, but it needs an 2 hours walk to reach the maple forest and it was not an appropriate time to watch Sakura. So I just took a few pictures for something else....

There are a number of different zones / scenery to visit and the only way to get there is by foot. The zones are linked by footpath like that on the forth picture. We walked at least  3- 4 km that afternoon.

The park is huge but part of them was destroyed by landslide during earthquake.....You can see from the following picture how large the affected area was....

We were back to Taichung that night and we stayed in a poor hotel with lots of PRC guys. They opened the door all day, yelled in the corridor, etc. We had a noisy night.

The first picture was the view from our hotel room, overseeing the bus terminal (that's why we picked this hotel). The second picture was a sculpture on the street corner.

One of the must-see items there is a tree of 2800 years old.

You have to walk through a lot of pine forest and bamboo forest in order to see the old tree and other sightseeing spots. The third picture is a house made by bamboo.

This is called University Pool but I don't know why. When we walked to the pool, we had some companies running around us and on the tree....

Where more and more tourists went to this park, the people there built a Japanese style village next to the park. It is called Kuma (妖怪村). They put all the weird things there, even the signage......

Visitor can buy a visitor ticket, which includes the round trip bus ticket to Taichung, the ticket to the park plus a souvenir.....You can write your wish on the souvenir and tie it on the tree.....
