The Local Life Experience in Takuapa
- Full Day
Rise early before the sun, be picked up at 5:30 from the hotel and be taken to the fresh market where guests can buy food to offer to the Buddhist monks. Experience and taste the Chinese style cuisine, Dim Sum for breakfast. Walk through the streets in the old part of the town with a local guide to see the almost 200 years old houses that were built in the traditional style of that period. Take a visit at temples in the area that show the difference between a Buddhist and a Chinese Taoist temple. Chatting with monks is also possible.

Next, make a stop at a local “Moon Cake” bakery, have the chance to see how traditional cookies are made. After a light lunch, make a visit to the Saori Foundation, a women’s workshop which develops its own textile designs after a Japanese monk showed tsunami survivors how to weave and earn a living. And then safely return to the hotel in the late afternoon. (B/L)
