Pronunciation Guide

Before we start, a quick pronunciation guide for the name "Min Hsiung" for any non-Chinese speakers:
"Min" is pronounced like the word "mean" in English.
"Hsiung(Taiwanese spelling)/Xiong (standard romanization "pinyin") " is pronounced similar to the -cion/-tion ending found in Spanish and French respectively (not English). Just add a "g" to the end of that sound and you should be pretty close. If you don't know how to pronounce those sounds, take the "-cio" sound from the word "sociopath", and add an "ng". Try to make it into one syllable.
That should help you not look silly when you tell people where you went/want to go. 

Min Hsiung (could you say it?)

Yesterday's trip featured a visit to Min Hsiung, a cute, little area (township) in Chiayi county. It's a great half-day trip for couples, singles, families, or a group of friends - there's something for everyone. Visit a historical museum and learn about the role of technology in warfare, take pictures with beautifully-painted cats and bears (not real bears or cats), or venture into one of the most famous "haunted" houses in Taiwan. Wait a minute, I thought you said this place was cute!? Well most of it is cute. The great thing about Min Hsiung is that there are many interesting places close together, so you can visit several in one day and still not feel rushed.

About Me

Hello everyone, my name is Garrett. I'm an American college student doing some traveling in Southern Taiwan this summer, and I wanted to share some of my experiences with you. I hope my posts about my experiences can encourage you to come to Taiwan, and help you decide where to go, what to do there, and how to do it (or maybe how not to do it).

If you have any questions about traveling in Taiwan or anything else really, there's a comment section at the very bottom of the page, I'd love to hear from you! I'll also be writing a Chinese version of all of my posts, which I will also provide a link in each respective one. The information will be relatively the same for both versions, so choose whichever is easier for you to understand. 

Pronunciation Guide

First of all, how do you pronounce "Fenqihu"? What is that scary "q" doing in there? Not to worry, it's easy!
"Fen" sounds like "fun"

About Us

Village Villa is a Bed and Breakfast in the quiet little town of Zhu Qi, Taiwan.  Zhu Qi can be found in Chia Yi County in Southern Taiwan, located at the foot of Ali Shan (Mountain Ali). Despite its size, Zhu Qi has many scenic spots in the area such as Alishan National Scenic Area, Fenqihu (Fen Qi Lake), Ruili Scenic Area, and many more. The B&B is next to the Zhuqi train station and very close to Zhuqi Water Park. The city’s slow, relaxed-pace allows visitors to experience the local Taiwanese lifestyle, away from all the commotion often found in larger cities.

Village Villa features country style rooms and common areas brimming with charming decorations. The staff are hospitable and helpful and are sure to make guests feel welcome from the moment they arrive. Village Villa has been recognized for their excellent service and has been admitted into the “319 Smile League”, an organization that acknowledges companies that possess five key traits: friendliness, cleanliness, taste, character, and happiness.

There are two buildings on site, Village Villa and Bohe House, each with five bedrooms. Guests are given the option of two-person or four-person rooms. No two rooms are alike, so be sure to check them all out to see which one is most suitable for you.  Each room has wifi-access and its own bathroom. All guests receive complimentary breakfast from our excellent staff. The kitchens are reserved for staff-use only, due to space, but the kitchen may be used if a party reserves all 5 rooms in the building.
