Taiwan Thumb-up Retreat B&B
The host is the internationally known Wittgenstein and Laozi scholar K. T. Fann. After retiring in 1995 from teaching philosophy in York University in Toronto, he returned to his native village and turned an abandoned 1 hectre ancestral farm into an organic retirement paradise.
He designed and built a unique six-sided home flanked by two guest rooms, all with large windows allowing full views of the seasonal changes of the picturesque scenery outside. He planted many century-old trees; more than 100 kinds of fruit trees and flowering plants. He keeps and breeds all kinds of rare parrots and some of them are flying free and will land on guests' shoulders. There are chickens, ducks, geese, fowls, peacocks, rabbits, etc. running free. He also keeps honeybees and collects his own honey and pollen.
