Posted Date:2017/11/22 653

Introduction

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...

    最好是假日去造訪,是個有文創氣息的地方,那裡是眷村再利用的商圈,對文創有興趣的朋友,撥個時間來告訪不一樣的年輕人生活方式.可順道造訪鄰近一個極富生活教育的-霧峰地震教育園區

    位在台灣台中霧峰區和平路6號的光復新村是一個愛貓人士一定都知道的地方,那裡的野貓很多很可愛,但是晚上最好不要過去,很昏暗

    建議下午假日去比較熱鬧

    大部分是兩層樓的低房子,每間店舖都非常有特色,有文創商品、手工餅乾、烘焙咖啡及一些創意產業。營業時間多為中午至傍晚,店舖不多,但有廁所可借用。來到時已經看到兩對新人在拍攝婚紗照。下午喝個咖啡是種享受! 推薦店家有小麥子手工餅乾、魯西歐咖啡店。老闆娘都非常熱情招待客人。
