Posted Date:2018/09/07 2530


Located in Wufeng District, Guangfu New Village is the first new village built after WWII. It is now a favored location for wedding photography and film making.
Guanghu New Village was dorm compound sponsored by the United States government to accommodate the dependents of civil servants of the Education Department, Provincial Government. It holds a special place in Taiwan’s architectural and urban history for its unique design of the latest concept of a garden city at the time which aimed to integrate work and residential areas and create a green living space of low resident density. The village features organized streets, refreshing environment and the very first underground sewage system that separates rainwater and wastewater.
After community revitalization, Guangfu New Village has turned into a cultural and creative village where artists and entrepreneurs came to establish their creative base within the mottled historic red brick walls.
Visitors can also visit 921 Earthquake Museum of Taiwan nearby Guangfu New Village. It is where you can witness the nature’s power of destruction.

    This is supposed to be a typical village, and you can find quite a lot of hand-made stuff. Not bad, but not amazing. What IS amazing is this place called "cheer dots". Coming from the earthquake...
