Past and Present: Excursion to Hsinchu

120 International and Taiwanese students joined the excursion to Leo Foo Village Theme Park and Hsinchu Military Dependants’ Museum on December 6th, 2014. This is one of the special tours organized for students of different cultural backgrounds: Chinese Culture University emphasizes diversity, and hopes to enhance mutual understanding and cross-cultural exchange. Interest for this tour has been so great that students had lined up early in the morning in order to register as soon as possible.

The buses left early at 8:45 in the morning, and the first stop of the tour was at the Hsinchu Military Dependants’ Museum, where students could study the local Hakka folk art, and daily life challenges of the military and their families in Taiwan during the decade of the 1960s in Taiwan. In the afternoon, the students had fun in the Leo Foo Village Theme Park, the First Fantasy World in Asia that combines both Amusement Park and Safari, with all its entertaining attractions: The Park has four theme areas - “Wild West”, “South Pacific”, “Arabian Kingdom” and “African Safari”, including a wild animal zoo.

Later, they all went to a nostalgic restaurant, with the decoration resembling the style of the 1960ies, for tasting a delicious Taiwanese style dinner. Tired, but happy, everyone returned to CCU safely around 9:00pm, concluding this one-day trip of extraordinary experiences of both the previous and modern life styles in Taiwan.
