We visited Lugang temple, a traditional home, and the Folk Art Museum. It was interesting to see the architecture of an old home and different artifacts. Did you know that dragons have 7 sons? We saw an art piece explaining the characteristics of the dragon sons and where they usually appear in artifacts. (My favorite was the one who likes to eat and is seen on big pots.)

We stopped by the old pedestrian mall to shop and try street foods. Jason recommended us the local beverage/snack - peanut powder, sugar, and flour dough are mixed with hot water and half mixed up. The texture is very doughy. We also tried local pastries - like 牛舌餅 (which literally mean beef tongue pastry - don't worry, the only resemblance to a beef tongue is the shape of it).
