12304;Project Background12305;Xiluo TownshipXiluo is a township located in the northeast of Yunlin County, in the middle of Taiwan. Situated in the Zhuoshui River alluvial fan valley, it gradually decreases from the east to the south. One of the most famous landmarks in Taiwan, the impressive Xiluo Bridge has stood on the river for 68 years, providing visitors with stunning views of the sunset.For those looking to experience typical Taiwanese culture and history, Xiluo s old street is a must-visit destination. Between 1925 and 1940, almost 200 western-style street-houses were built on Xiluo Old Street. The historical buildings on Yanping Road have witnessed the cultural development and business prosperity of Xiluo throughout the years. The Louyoung Culture and Education Foundation aims to protect these historical buildings and promote Xiluo s culture and art, ultimately improving the quality of life in the area.Visitors to Xiluo can learn Mandarin Chinese speaking and traditional Chinese Kung Fu, experience the Taiwanese Puppet show, learn handcraft skills, and even make friends with the local people. There is also an opportunity to visit the primary school for a culture exchange or to teach English, as well as attend the community college.To further enhance the dynamic of the city, international visitors are invited to join the social work. This opportunity provides not only voluntary work but also a fantastic chance for cultural exchange and learning about Taiwanese culture. Additionally, visitors can explore the area by visiting local artists, participating in local activities, experiencing ecotourism during their free time, and interacting with the friendly locals.Overall, Xiluo is an excellent destination for those looking to learn about Taiwanese culture, history, and art while contributing to the local community.
