Exchange Students Cultural Tour in Ilan on February 23rd – Unique Green Onion Picking Experience, Loudong Forestry Culture Park, and Luodong Night Market

On February 23rd, the Office of International Programs will be hosting a one-day cultural tour to Ilan County, where students will gain a better understanding of the Taiwanese culture. Come and join us on your first adventure in Taiwan.

Taiwan’s delicacies are world famous. You can taste authentic cuisines from various regions within Asia. Shang Jiang Restaurant has incorporated the green onion into many of its dishes, striking a perfect balance between different flavors. This will be a great opportunity to have a one-of-a-kind experience of Taiwan’s unique food culture. 

For our next stop of the day, we will be picking green onions and making delicious scallion pancakes. If someone asks a Taiwanese where the green onions in Taiwan are produced, they will definitely answer “the Sanshing Township”. The clear water and fertile soil make it a perfect place for high-quality green onions.


The next stop on the tour will be the Loudong Forestry Culture Park. The culture park represents the deep history of the wood industry in Ilan. Wood forestry plays an important role of the development of Loutong, pushing forward many related industries. Walking on the beautiful trail, students can also enjoy the tranquil and soothing atmosphere.


At the end of the day, we will visit Luodong Night Market for some traditional snacks and stalls selling clothing, shoes, accessories, and many other items. Luodong Night Market is one of Taiwan’s biggest night markets and is a wonderful place to shop and dine.


Above all, this cultural tour only costs 1,500 NTD per person, including transportation, lunch, English tour guide, green onion DIY fee, insurance, and well, unforgettable memories.
