Demonstrating that eco-living is well within our reach and promoting farming and dairy culture, the Shin Kong Chao Feng Ranch & Resort is an ideal family day out – and great for giving the kids some environmental education. This incredible ecological park in the heart of Hualien and surrounded by spectacular mountain views, is jam-packed with activities to entertain. Take a stroll through the European-style landscaped garden or visit the Dutch windmill and flower gardens. Roam the 70 hectares of pastureland and say hello to the calves at the cow nursery. Help out with raccoon feeding time, pet the rabbits or walk through the birds of paradise aviary. You can navigate the huge park with an eco-friendly transport option by renting a bike or electric car, or by hopping aboard the passenger train. Then, at the end of an active day, relax in the hot springs whilst the kids splash about in the swimming pool.

Due to road closure, we cannot stay at Tanoko Silk Palace and staying in this ranch is our contingency plan. We were lucky that they still have vacant room and they did not even ask for deposit. The service there is excellent. All the staff in the resort are very helpful and efficient. In general we have a good time at the ranch, except that we were disappointed that we cannot experience milking the cow and for those who are sensitive to insect bite, make sure you ask the receptionist for insect spray before going to the farm. The bite by the little insect are painful and itchy. It will takes a few days to subside... I hope so as mine is still swollen after 4 days. They only serve standard set menu for dinner, where they have fish, vegetables, pork soup, pork rib, chicken, pickles and rice. . Also, make sure you go early for dinner as they close by 8.30 pm.For those who like to have hot bath, this is a good place too. You can go to the public one which is free of charge or have a private room.
We had a good time driving around the farm in the buggy. Had our hot spring dips for 2 nights there-it's free for visitors staying at the farm. The little farm -zoo area is a must go for children. There's a chance to feed and milk the cows too! Enjoyed our stay there but had to change destination bec we are tired if eating the same food (breakfast, lunch and dinner) every day.
The farm is actually a hot-spring resort with a petite zoo, orchard, insect corner and botanical garden. Accommodation in the form of small chalets (either 4 single beds or 2 king size beds), spacious and basic, the king size beds are good enough even for 2 adults. Although there were scratches and stains on the walls and floor it's clean and tidy. The highlight must be the open air hotsprings - different sizes and temperature. Even with the influx of local tourists at evenings, the hotsprings seems not too crowded. Due to the duration of our stay we booked a golf-kart for travelling within the farm - this is very important for kids or elderly because the size of the farm is really big. Another alternative is the 4-wheels 'bike'. ... Compared with other entertainment parks such as Eda this farm is able to display a wide range of natural wonders for the kids to appreciate. Kids were amazed at the sight of Friesland cows and the experience of feeding the calves. This is one of the best farms in Taiwan.
