With new dwellers, Shen Ji New Village thrives in cultural and creative industry and attracts visitors to the cluster of distinctive shops and studios.

The Rainbow Village
The Rainbow Village (Chinese: 彩虹眷村;
pinyin: Cǎihóng Juàncūn) is a street art in Nantun
District, Taichung, Taiwan. It was created by former
soldier, Huang Yung-Fu, who was born in Taishan county,
Guangdong province in 1924. The eldest of four brothers
and two sisters Huang's artistic talents were revealed
early on. He began painting houses in his settlement,
now known as Rainbow village, to save them from
demolition. Over the years his colourful artwork, which
includes birds, animals and people, has spread over the
remaining houses in the village, which once contained
Huang, originally from Hong Kong,
joined the nationalist Kuomintang (KMT) army in 1946 to
fight communist troops in mainland China during the
civil war. In 1949, many of the defeated KMT troops
followed their leader, Chiang Kai-shek, as he fled to
Taiwan. Soldiers were given temporary housing in
hundreds of dedicated military villages across the
island. Eventually, some settlements became permanent
and many veterans and their families were left to spend
much of their lives in them.
Many houses became run down and
developers began buying up the land for redevelopment.
Residents were offered compensation or new housing to
move but Huang remained even after his neighbours had
left and only 11 homes remained. Bored with being the
only person left in the village he began painting a bird
inside his home and his artwork grew from there.
Local university students discovered
Huang's work and campaigned to save the village.
Authorities eventually agreed that it should be
preserved and hopefully become a designated cultural
area. It is a popular tourist attraction, along with
nearby Art street pulling in more than a million
visitors annually, mostly from Asia.
Gaomei Wetland located on the south of the mouth of
Dajia River is a land mixed with both sand and soil
textures and comes in 1,500 acres. That explains why it
has complicated yet rich wetland ecology and possesses
the largest group of Bolboschoenus planieulmis in
Taiwan. Due to diverse geographical features, the
species of its ecology is quite abundant. Every year
around fall and winter, large flocks of migrating birds
would come here for either short or long stay over the
winter, serving as the best spot for bird-watching.5. Documents verifying the purpose of visit; and other relevant documents.
