guests,ladies and gentlemen I am Chuan-yan Huang,
the mayor of Dashu District and welcome
you to the website of Dashu District Administration
on behalf of all the staff.
A Beautiful Rural Town by the Gaoping River
Poets and men of letters often praised the landscapes
in Dashu by intoning poems and verses entitled
the pale river and the autumn moon.
Modern Times -The
honorably retired Gate of the Caogong Irrigation
Canal (the water control gate) has been standing
to the present days since the Cing Dynasty. Despite
its slightly lonely existence, it once wrote a
great chapter in the history of Taiwan’s irrigation
and drainage engineering.
old railway bridge over the Gaoping River (the
lower Danshui River) was once the longest of its
kind in Southeast Asia. Despite its bygone glorious
past, homesick locals who left Dashu in the pursuit
of personal success always remember it. the cable-stayed
bridge, the sole dominant existence day and night
in the area, straddles the Gaoping River and has
become the new landmark of Kaohsiung County. the
high quality water and soil give birth to some
of the most exquisite fruits in Taiwan – pineapple
and Yuhebao (or jade purse) lychee. some historic
spots and buildings ranked as national treasures,
such as Jhuliao Water Intake Station, Sanhe Kilnss,
the Old House in Gupoliao, and Jhao-di Lin Ceramics
Studio, have further enhanced the cultural characteristics
and humanistic touch of Dashu. fo Guang Shan Monastery,
one of the Buddhist sacred sites in the world,
makes you feel full of delight in truth and free
of any physical or mental restraint. It thus makes
Dashu the hometown of religion and spirituality.
Dashu boasts rich resources blessed
by nature and cultural legacy. Therefore, it is
the dream and vision of the entire community to
develop Dashu into “a hometown of fruits and a
tourist hub”. We have the potential and charisma.
And the voluntary participation of the community
is a further display of vigor.
so happy to introduce all of you the beautiful “impression of
Dashu” and we hope that you like it. We also strongly
recommend that you take some time off to leave the
hustle and bustle behind and personally visit all
the attractions in Dashu. You can enjoy the landscape
along the Gaoping River and chase the wind on a
bike along the low-water revetment. Or you can look
at the flock of egrets and maiden grass in the distance
and listen to the running water and chirping birds,
allowing your mind to settle down. If you are hungry,
you can choose to replenish your energy at one of
the diners that sell “the thin rice noodles of Dashu”
or with the grass carp relishes under the cable-stayed
bridge. Well, interested? Why don’t you turn your
intention into action? We sincerely invite you to
visit Dashu and you will for sure fall in love with
