Mr Zheng was very helpful and friendly and made recommendations along way as he saw appropriate. He was engaged my 6 year old boy as well and my son took to him pretty well.

It was great to have Mr Dai as our driver for 7 days. Although he was not a guide, he was always very eager to share with us his knowledge about Taiwan and the some of the places that we would be visiting. He was always looking for ways which he could improve his services by asking us almost everyday if there was anything that he could do better. When we casually talk about buying some taiwan local products, he actually help us keep a look out for the products along the way such that we could buy them back. He was also very thoughtful and took care of us very well. For example. he would verbally check with us to ensure that we, especially our 4 year old daughter, had put on enough clothing during our tour. When we alighted his car to visit all places of interest, he would always park his vehicle near the exit or somewhere where we could easily find him. This greatly reduced the hassle and the time spent to look for the car. As a driver, he had provided fantastic service and we were very glad that he was our driver!

Very happy with the booking arrangements as it is fuss free. Very satisfied with the driver Mr Huang too as he is very amiable and accommodating. His car is very clean and he drives very comfortably till my boy always fell asleep whenever he travels from 1 destination to the next!!

Mr Sun is very professional and had good knowledge of the areas that he has brought us to, and was also flexible to adjust the journey (to make sure that we enjoyed the highlights first, or to cut short certain visits when our daughter didn't enjoy them). We felt relaxed and secure that we were in good hands. We will definitely engage your help again when we next visit Taiwan. Thank you!

about Nantou - Monster Village

Join us on a journey into the heart of Taiwan, and this tour to Nantou will delight those who travel as a family and are looking for kid-friendly activities.

The life of the past of Taiwan has been recreated at Taiwan Times Village along with all kinds of traditional delicacies. Under one giant roof, they put lives of Hakka, Minnan, aborigines, and veterans from China all together in separated community blocks, making it a good chance for foreign visitors to learn about old Taiwan. It’s literally a paradise for people of all ages, where the folkgame will keep children’s minds and hands engaged, parents will be as excited as kids taking photos on the street as if they were back to their precious childhood, while grandparents can have their time spent at the souvenir shop being amazed by a wealth of their nostalgic memories. Whether you’re a family with children or simply a child at heart, a visit to the Monster Village is a charming opportunity to get acquainted with the forest spirits. It will be a hands-on kind of afternoon at Mochi Museum where kids can learn how to make mochi treats themselves from scratch. Mochi is the rice cake that wins the hearts of many Taiwanese, meanwhile as an indelible mark that Japanese cuisine has left on the Taiwanese diet. Pineapple cakes, beloved by locals and tourists alike, is also known as the most famous dessert in Taiwan. By the end of the day, you’ll be enjoying the sweet landscape of Sunny Hill’s pineapple farm and maybe a bit of sampling of the almighty pineapple cakes!
