2010 August Day 4 (Part 1) Taichung 台中 薰衣草森林 (Lavender Cottage)

We booked the same driver for our second day itinerary.  薰衣草森林 (Lavender Cottage), 安妮公主花園 (Annie’s garden), 百菇莊 (mushroom farm) are all located in Shinshe 新社.  We spent about half day in Shinshe and after that, we headed back to Taichung – 高美濕地 and Fengjia night market.

Firstly, you would see a lavender shop that sold a wide variety of lavender products. Not sure if you notice the nice wooden swing – can bask in the sun if you like.

You could also send your gifts to your loved ones by post !  The purple box besides the ‘Post’ was exactly a infused scent box.  You can put your entrance ticket inside and after that, your ticket will have the lavender smell.
