The outward appearance of the building looks like a bar of top-notched handcraft chocolate cut in half with the fillings flowing out. You can find interesting facts about chocolate in the education section, creative chocolate dishes in the gourmet section, chocolate products in the market section, and even have some hands-on experience in the DIY section.  The exterior of the factory was based on India's Darjeeling Tea Factory but with a touch of both Taiwanese and Japanese in its interior layout. Take a visit to the factory to get to know the process of tea-making, drink a cup of freshly brewed tea, and chillax in the golden oldies atmosphere. 

The 3-hectare forest consisting of green cypresses slowly turns into different shades of red starting from late fall. During mid-summer, the lush green bald cypress forest is accompanied by a pond of blooming lotuses. Come and take a walk in the cypress forest. Immerse in a forest bath. You will surely feel restored and rejuvenated at the end of the day.
