This was originally built over 200 years ago. For one reason or another, it was not considered an historical site and was subsequently moved and expanded in 2000. For a tourist, you get a sense of what a wealthy man would have built for his family. There are a large set of grounds where you can wander and see what... More

We had a lot of fun on our visit here. There were some fun caves for the kids to walk through, and I loved the greenhouse and cool clock. There was a very pretty bridge and the boys jumped over it. We took a bus to get there but it was complicated to do that on the way back. There... More

It had been several years since we last visited the Lin An-Tai old homestead. What a surprise! What originally was just an old house has now been expanded to include a garden and pond, as well as a "climbing hill" in the front. Add to that the attraction for photo shoots for weddings, school groups, etc. as well as occasional... More

This is a really nice place to visit if you want to avoid the masses of people and want to have a look at traditional Taiwanese houses. The little park invites for a stroll while the house shows how people lived in the past. It is a little inconvenient to get there. I took the metro to Yuanshan on the... More

Beautiful scene with authentic building. Nice stone carvings and a little waterfall to shut off the mind for a moment and escape the daily rush. Beautiful location for photoshoots, though is that not a secret and there are alot of them, which is nice to watch.

This traditional house in Fujian style was build during the Qing dynasty over several generations according to Feng Shui criteria. It was reconstructed in its present location in 2000. The pavilions are well kept, with some interesting furniture. Beautiful garden, with moon & crescent ponds, and a rock garden. Entrance is free. 15 mn walk from YuanShan MRT

Interesting to tour house and gardens of "old taiwan". While it doesn't look luxurious by Western standards, seeing it gives a glimpse into how the 1% lived in old Taiwan. Go only if you can approach it with that mindset...

Like Taipei Story House, the Lin Antai Old Homestead is located near a busy expressway, which is really unnerving if you're trying to relax in the huge garden that surrounds the main buildings. That's really the only drawback, though. The buildings are amazingly restored, and have (the original?) furniture inside. There are pavilions, bridges, ponds, and short hiking trails. In... More
