A family-friendly farm-stay resortWe stayed here on 11 December 2018. Dakeng Leisure Farm is basically a family business. It started as a chicken farm which transformed into a farm-stay resort based on the eco-sustainability concept. We enjoyed the food there which was a hundred percent locally-produced ingredients. For dinner we had roasted suckling pork, a local specialty dish. Kids, as well as some adults, will enjoy the outdoor facilities such as the aerial lift rope-way and rope bridge. There's also an observation deck which offers a 360 degree view of the surrounding mountains. An excellent spot for photographing sunrise and sunset. Other activities include strawberry picking at one of their nurseries, making of bamboo cicadas in their council hall, and setting off fireworks in the open area right beside their cypress restaurant.
An experienceDo not expect farm stay the likes of Australia,New Zealand, Korea etc. Perhaps the farm setup by previous generations was for livelihood but now it is more zoo-like tourist attraction... Let’s start with the positives... - The kids enjoyed the experience - The food is good (if you are open to local delicacies) - Good hospitality Negatives: - Serious need of upgrades (stuck in the 80s time warp) - Standard/ quality of rooms the likes of 1 star motels Recommendation: a day trip would be sufficient. If you intend to stay overnight, go with a group of friends to keep yourselves entertained
Nice place to stay in TainanI must say that all of us enjoy the stay. The host family are all nice and helpful. We take the advice of a sunrise view at nearby hill and it was spectacular and therefore highly recommended. Though there were no nearby restaurants within walking distance but foods furnished by the resort is excellent. In fact it was so good that all members of my family decided to go back for second dinner after having one in previous night. In short, you will like it if you want to enjoy a slow life experience after a hustle city work.
Man-made Nature ExperienceThis is a mini B&B small resort-style built in a part of nature in Tainan. The tiny waterfall, exercise workoutstation, etc are man-made. Air is fresh; sidetrips to nearby farms are pretty interesting. Beware certain walking paths can be muddy after rain. Watch out for insects that got into your room. Bring along insect-repellant, sun-block and water bottle for your hike. Breakfast is widespread; from nearby farms. If you are a city person and wants stuff spick-and-span laid out, this might not be for you. But for a change, go for it.
Food is awesomeThe food is exquisite, I loved them all. It's a good place for honeymoon actually because the room is big and very romantic. They have a swimming pool suitable for children also. There's a flying fox activity but you need to climb the hill which seemed like forever! I don't know why people complained about the room. Ours was clean and well kept. I only complained about the Wi-Fi because when we got there, the Wi-Fi was down. I can't live without internet.
