Zuojhen Moon Wor Ecological Academy (Ganglin Elementary School) (左鎮月世界生態學園(岡林國小))




Ganglin Elementary School was closed on July 1, 2006 due to emigration and low fertility. As it is near famous sights such as the Erliao Guanri Pavilion and Caoshan Badlands, the Tainan Bureau of Tourism established the “Zuojhen Yueshijiue Visitor Center” here. Apart from turning the grass playground into a campsite, the bureau has remodeled two classrooms into ecological camp dormitories (floor bedrooms, one for boys and one for girls) and added the shower facility with 24-hour hot water and electricity supply.

As the Zuojhen Yueshijiue Ecological Academy is close to the Erliao Guanri Pavilion (sunrise watching pavilion), the campsite is always full, particularly in summer, the best season for watching sunrise. Many visitors will stay at Ganglin Elementary School one night before and walk for about 30 minutes (5-minute drive) along Provincial Highway No. 162 to watch or take photos of sunrise at the pavilion.

With the well-preserved ecosystem, all types of purple crow butterflies, blue tiger butterflies, common tiger butterflies, and swallowtail butterflies are seen at the academy every May-July. Alongside with the slides and all kinds of children’s playground facilities, it is a great place for family trips. Also, there are other attractions along Provincial Highway No. 168, such as the Xinhua Old Street, Xinhua Government Office, Hutoupi Scenic Area, Xinhua Forest, Dakeng Farm, Erliao Guanri Pavilion, and Caoshan Yueshijie, the academy is suitable for one-day or two-day tour.
