Yesterday we decided to get out of Taichung, and headed to Puli. From where we were it was about a 40 min drive and it was very beautiful. Upon arriving our first stop was the Paper factory. This was a really cool spot and totally worth it. We parked and walked up the hill to the factory. It was a completely open space. We went on a guided tour in Chinese but there are signs in English for those who don’t understand Chinese. After the 20-30 min tour you can pay for a 40 min DIY to make your own paper.

After the paper factory we headed to the geographical center of Taiwan. This is a cool spot as it has some small hiking trails.
The last stop for the day was the Puli Wine Brewery. This was a let down as it didn’t look anything like I expected. There was a small museum which was kind of interesting. I got a picture with the wine urns. I also learned the 10 Commandments of drinking. I did not get to sample any drinks as it was a confusing mess. I left feeling sad because I was expecting to taste wine. I did get some delicious mango icecream tho!
