Tea fields planted in steps, with a mountain of verdant tea gardens, are a characteristic and unique sight of Pinglin. The Pinglin Tea Museum Periodically hosts various tea-related theme displays alongside exhibitions, experience showrooms, tea art classrooms and other spaces for introduction of the tea industry with its domestic and foreign culture to tourists. Pinglin Old Street preserved the most down to earth appearance of its hundred year history, including its old stone houses and traditional mom and pop stores. The well known Shenkeng Old Street is famous not only for stinky tofu delicacy but also “four Shenkang specialties”, green bamboo shoots, black pig pork, white tofu, and pouchong tea, planting the delectable image of Shenkang Old Street deep in one's mind. The unique “stilt houses” architecture can only be seen in Shiding, developed by locals to solve the problem of limited spacings. Well known souvenirs blend local features into handmade noodles, combining tea fragrance into noodles and adding new flavors to a traditional taste.
Eat, see, and stay in Shenkeng / Shiding / Pinglin District
Almost all the buses in this line had comfortable reclining seats.On schedule and courteous bus drivers. Will seldom assist with luggage stowage though. Bus stops were announced by automated lady so we seldom missed our stops. I think some bus drivers were former race car drivers based on the way they drove. Overall, not bad.
It’s all about tea and done on a very modern and appealing way. Good interaction games and very informative history about the tea.
Easy to view and do drop by the tea shop afterwards. Really lovely souvenir opportunities.
Came to the Street to try the famous stinky tofu in this well-known restaurant. Most of the old streets don’t have any business after 6 pm. This Old Street is unusual and special because most of stores are still open And a lot of stinky tofu restaurants on the same street. We ordered the spicy and non-spicy steam stinky tofu...
I visited Shihding Ciandao Lake, also known as, Thousand Island Lake, in September 2019. It is possible to catch the number 12 bus from Xindian Station but I paid for a half day tour instead to make sure I got there and back safely to my hotel. My tour also had a tea tasting event where we visited a tea...
Ambience is nice.
Service is bad.
Food is below average.
They gave me a wrong vegetable dish and told me this is better.
Chicken tasted plain. Insisted that we order half a big chicken for 2 of us.
Soup is below average too.
Prices are very steep.
Tourist trap, skip at all cost.
This is a great restaurant with wide variety of dishes, including fresh shrimp and fish from the nearby water. Every one in our party loved the tasty food we ordered on the table, and we will give it a 5 star for their food. The only drawback is the toilet is a little outdated, and desperately need remodeling work.
While the Hione hotel is starting to age and on the fringes the antiquity is rising like a soft patina, the overall condition of this hotel is very nice. The staff is accommodating but a little standoffish. And the in-house restaurant is only ok (a little overpriced). But overall, it was a nice respite from the traveling road.

I was stayed in fullon hotel shenkeng for 3 nights for short trip in TW. Once I entered the lobby for check in, I felt everything is generally okay as 4 stars hotel; such as cleanliness, atmosphere etc. Although, there was small mistakes during check in, I think it is totally fine since hotel staff's attitude was very kind.
