Horseshoe Crab Cottages
Taiwan is an amazing country with traditional delicacies and in Kinmen, you will even find out much more Chinese living style! Kinmen is the front line of the WWII and the Cold War and the Kinmen island was opened to outsiders only 20 years ago. Both our Guningtou village and the island is a battlefield. Been through the wars, the houses in the village were covered with bullet hoes, and so did our house.
The traditional living style and military castles and tunnels were preserved due to the limitation of the construction and are opened to tourists today. There are event operas and concerts held in the water tunnels!
To supply themselves and survive, Kinmen people produce knives made of canons and make food, desserts and wine from the local plants like peanuts and sorghum. You can have a taste and if you are fond of trying new cuisine. You can try peanut candies, sorghum wine milk tea and so on!
As a packer, you can stay for free in a traditional southern-Chinese style village and house.
