Born in Dadaocheng, Yeh Yang's family moved to Beitou when he was 2 or 3 years old, and most of his memories of growing up are in Beitou. To him, culture and history are no longer just work - they’re a calling. Rather than being told about the gradual changes or the distribution of the watershed of the surroundings in chronological order, how about you get a local perspective, and see the hot spring town in a different way?
Yeh Yang has spent years researching and collecting objects from his hometown to sort out the past and present of Beitou. He believes that many travelers who come here leave in a hurry as soon as they get a dip of the sulfur water, and rarely bother to stay here. However, the highlight of Beitou is not just the hot springs. Many old Japanese houses and cultural sites have great historical value and are worth seeing. They have all experienced different stories to be preserved as the way they are now. In this part of history, every old house shows a different attitude to life.
This year, the Royal Explorer will look at the land of Beitou from the perspective of Yeh Yang. Slow down and bathe with heaven and earth. Experience the unique atmosphere of being surrounded by mountains and the swirling hot spring mist!
