Minsu: 日月潭山季花園民宿, Nantou
Staying in 民宿 (minsu, homestay) is part of enjoying Taiwan’s hospitality culture and this uprising of ownership and entrepreneurship. Unlike AirB&B where you may be staying in a room next to the owner, a lot of these minsu are professionally managed with a touch of homely feel. In my last year’s trip to Taiwan, we stayed in 歐風小鎮 (Europe Villa) at Cingjing and Flower Happiness Bed & Breakfast at Hualien. In this trip, we stayed in 歐風小鎮 (Europe Villa) again to the delight of his family!
We also tried out a new Minsu which is driving distance to Sun Moon Lake and 九族文化村 (Aboriginal Village Theme Park) at Nantou.日月潭山季花園民宿 is another pretty minsu with a huge huge garden! Whenever I stay in a minsu in Taiwan, it made me want to sell off all assets in Singapore and setup a minsu in Taiwan too! I will then daydream hosting people from all around the world! Haha.
Here are some pictures for you to daydream too!
They even kept a fat turkey in here! I hope it’s not to fatten up for Thanksgiving Dinner! Haha.
Theres also a little hut for their 3 cats!
Two of their cats.
After taking a quick morning stroll at their garden, breakfast lovingly prepared by the owner is waiting for us! Look at the amount of food!
Look at that the huge garden behind us! I hope AirB&B can be legalize in Singapore and I can rent out 1 room in my imaginary future home to people visiting Singapore! Haha.
