Dulan, Taiwan : Art and Aboriginal Culture

If you are cruising north from Taidong on Highway 11, you will come across the village of DulanAlthough small and perhaps a bit too easy to miss, one really should make an effort to stop, as Dulan hosts some pretty cool art and aboriginal culture. Here you will find an abandoned sugar mill turned art colony, with the work of many aboriginal artists on display, musical performances on the weekends, as well as some good places to enjoy a meal.

  2. Beautifully crafted artwork!! Looks like a great place to hang out and chill!!

    There are some nice surprises on the east coast! My husband and I stumbled upon a church shaped as a boat and just had to stop and check it out!

  3. This is an awesome entry–love your blog, and especially these photos of the artwork. I’m looking forward to moving to the east coast from Canada this spring. Can hardly wait! I plan on going to many of the places you’ve wrote about. Happy New Year
