PIC-Mayor Ying-jhih Ceng

Distinguished 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.

Dashu District– A Beautiful Rural Town by the Gaoping River

Ancient Times -
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.

The 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.

 we are 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 her!

Examples are Fo Guang Shan Monastery, the hometown of religion and spirituality; the cable-stayed bridge, the magnificent new landmark between Kaohsiung and Pingtung; and widely renowned pineapple and Yuhebao lychee. There are also some historic spots ranked as national treasures such as the old railway bridge over the lower DanshuiRiver, the Gate of the CaogongIrrigationCanal, Jhuliao Water Intake Station, the Old House in Gupoliao, Sanhe Kilns, and Jhao-di Lin Ceramics Studio.
