Description - What to expect

Hakka people are regarded as the 2nd biggest ethnic group in Taiwan with their own unique customs and traditions. Whether you're a first-time visitor or a returning guest, in this Hakka tour you will discover the spirit of the Hakka.



Hakka Tour Itinerary:



Your Hakka tour starts with a train ride from “Love Station” Hexing Station to Zhudong Station. Stop by Zhudong Cultural and Creative Park, an art exhibition location converted from an old staff dormitory. Then move to Zhudong Traditional Market, regarded as Taiwan’s largest Hakka market. Here you have an opportunity to try 3 Hakka traditional snacks.



Then, continue with a walking tour along Beipu Old Street. Situated in the west part of Hsinchu County, Beipu is a Hakka township, where many buildings dating back to the Qing dynasty and the Japanese Colonial Era are still well preserved: Beipu Citian Temple, Jin Guang Fu House, and many more.



The Hakka people are widely known for their unique food culture. It’s very refreshing to have a cup of “Lei Tea”, a traditional Hakka drink made by grinding pumpkin seeds, peanuts, sesame seeds, tea leaves, and other food ingredients softly blended with hot water. Easy-to-make and nutrition-rich make it an energy drink for the Hakka people.



Taiwan is the "Kingdom of Fruits". Fresh fruits are available all year round. A wonderful day concludes at a local fruit farm. You will pick and bring home fresh seasonal fruits, full of warmth and hospitality of Hakka people. Your Hakka tour ends with return transport to your Taipei hotel in the late afternoon.
