Fuli Flowers

Fuli Flowers

Bei meiner Reise durch Hualien County in Taiwan kam ich durch den wunderschönen Ort Fuli. Die Aussicht vom Berg oben aus ist unglaublich – wie in einem Kinderbuch!
Jedes Jahr gibt es in Taiwan Blumenfestivals.
Auf diesem Foto sieht man den “Sixty Stone Mountain”. Ich kann diese Reise sehr empfehlen wenn man den Duft purer Natur geniessen möchte.

“From a distant land in the east, from across the sea…” – Shenmue

This is the dawn view from the Alishan mountain in Taiwan. Alishan is well known for its sunrises, and on a suitable morning one can observe the sun come up on a sea of clouds in the area between Alishan and Yüshan. The area is also famous for its production of high mountain tea and wasabi.
