The Taiwan Orchid Plantation hosts an international orchid festival each year in March. The festival features eye-catching floral art, topiary landscapes, and installation art works that artistically and creatively present orchids in all their beauty. Visitors should also check out the TSC Wushulin Recreation Park. The park was converted from a former sugar plantation of the Taiwan Sugar Corporation, and the old "Five-minute" sugar train still operates, taking visitors on a nostalgic ride into the past.
Baihe District is known as the "Land of the Lotus." Every year from June to August, lotus ponds throughout the district come into brilliant bloom. During the lotus seed harvest season in summer, visitors can feast on delicious lotus-seed cuisine. Baihe is also home to Daxian Temple and Biyun Temple, which are situated at "celestial net casting" spirit points according to feng shui principles. The secluded environment here provides the perfect spot to find peace of mind. Another local attraction is the Water and Fire Spring; water and fire may be born enemies, but here they come seamlessly together, an outcome of conjoined natural gas and spring fissures.
The Guanziling Hot Springs are home to one of only three mud springs in the world, the other two being found in Italy and Japan. The mineral-rich springs are said to enhance beauty and relieve muscle fatigue. A short trip from the springs takes you to Dongshan Coffee Park, where panoramic views of beautiful Guanziling Mountain await along with fresh-roasted Dongshan coffee. Duck heads and deep fried pork ribs are among the other local specialties of Dongshan.
