    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We love to share the culture and cooking of Taiwan, also we enjoy hanging around our local town with our guests if we are not at work. Our town, Longtan, is close to mountains. There are some trails to hike or bike. Also you can see the history of the Chiang's (late rulers of Taiwan) and experience the cultures of Hakka( one of Taiwan's minority people) . I am a big runner and very into fitness training, I can share with ones who are interested. Also I can do sports massage.

    Kind reminder: Longtan is a common town with not much to see. Staying more than a week will bore you, especially if we don't have time to hang around with you.

  • Help


    Mostly we need help on cleaning the areas of the house that we don't have time to do while we are at work. 1-2 hours a day would be good enough. If there's no specific area needed to be cleaned, help us practice English.
    Update: If you are well experienced on wall painting, we do need your help to paint the house.
