Yesterday was a beautiful day in Tainan City; bright sunshine in the morning, with a cool weather at 23°C for late Winter.
After breakfast, I headed straight to Tainan train station, and bought a train ticket.
Setting off as per plan, to a small town located in the northern region of Tainan County, HouBi District (後壁區), approximately 40km from the Tainan City.
HouBi District is a plane farm area, suitable for agricultural crops. And with remarkable geographical features, it is also the best spot for growing orchid flowers.
Inhibited with 26,002 people living in an area of 71 km². These data from Wiki computed to have a population density equivalent to 3 person standing in an international soccer field!
Located in GuanZiLing scenic area of HouBi District, the most well-known activity happening here is its hot spring and mud spa. It is one of the 3 places in the world who naturally-gifted land with mud spa.
If you want to enjoy a relaxing mud spa in quiet solitude, don’t miss this spot. However, as this particular week, HouBi District has a totally different attraction.
