Niushan Huting
Ranked #373 of 1,641 Hualien County B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 4, 2013

Niu Shan Huting is situated in Shoufeng Township, a rural township located in Hualien County. It is about 30 minutes ride from Hualien City along the East Coast line.

Niu Shan Huting is relatively unknown to foreign tourists. We ventured into this beautiful place on our Taiwanese tour guide’s recommendation.

According to our tour guide, ‘Niu Shan’ used to be a ground for grazing of cattle decades ago. ‘Niu Shan’ has the same meaning as ‘Huting’ in the Formosan language of the Amis tribe, the largest ethnic group among Taiwanese aborigines. Thus it is named as ‘Niu Shan Huting’ when the owner, an Amis aborigine, decided to open a recreation establishment there.

Driftwoods were used to create ‘leisure for life’ themed artworks for the home and its surroundings. The son of the owner of Niu Shan Huting would beach-comb and pick up driftwoods that have wound up on the shore, and return the driftwoods to nature by reincarnating them as animal sculptures, furniture and fixtures. Thought he is only an amateur sculptor, his works of art are amazing and inspiring!

As Niu Shan Huting is a B&B establishment, if you are not a guest for the lodging you would need to pay NTD$50 for the admission to the recreation area. However the ticket for the admittance can be used as a voucher for redeeming food and beverages at the café inside.

Generally speaking, although Niu Shan Huting provides B&B accommodation for visitors, but most of the less adventurous tourists would not stay here due to its remote location and dated amenities. However, they’d happy to visit here for the purpose of enjoyment and appreciation of artworks, and even doing nothing! So when you are here, remember to slow down your pace, feel the wind, enjoy the breeze, let birdsong and ocean be your music, and let yourself be within it!
