Zuojhen Moon Wor Ecological Academy (Ganglin Elementary School) (左鎮月世界生態學園(岡林國小))
As the Zuojhen Yueshijiue Ecological Academy is close to the Erliao Guanri Pavilion (sunrise watching pavilion), the campsite is always full, particularly in summer, the best season for watching sunrise. Many visitors will stay at Ganglin Elementary School one night before and walk for about 30 minutes (5-minute drive) along Provincial Highway No. 162 to watch or take photos of sunrise at the pavilion.
With the well-preserved ecosystem, all types of purple crow butterflies, blue tiger butterflies, common tiger butterflies, and swallowtail butterflies are seen at the academy every May-July. Alongside with the slides and all kinds of children’s playground facilities, it is a great place for family trips. Also, there are other attractions along Provincial Highway No. 168, such as the Xinhua Old Street, Xinhua Government Office, Hutoupi Scenic Area, Xinhua Forest, Dakeng Farm, Erliao Guanri Pavilion, and Caoshan Yueshijie, the academy is suitable for one-day or two-day tour.

Not a highlightThe "Moonscape" did not do it for me. Sorry. Thought I could have used my tourist time better elsewhere.
Great sceneryIt is a great place but Guess we should visit this place when the weather is more cooling instead of summer. And we had lunch at a nearby chicken stall as most of the shops are closed during weekday!
Cycle to the moonThis time I took the route from guanmiao 關廟 to xinhua 新化, and stopped by Moon-world. Its my 2nd visit and there is little different viewing from another side. I like them both! Actually Moon world is a bad-land where plants are too salty and tough to grow. Its landscape changes slightly after every heavy pour of rain. Its a changing world. There is a bridge called "要月橋", dont miss it if you visit moon world!
Blocked views of mountainDidn't get the spectacular views seen in the pictures. Most of the views are blocked and construction around the area. In fact, there are better views along the way
Stunning SunriseThis place is popular with local photographers for it's stunning landscape at sunrise. I went as early as an hour before sunrise and was surprise at the crowd already. Spring season is the best time to view the sunrise rising over a foggy, jagged landscape.
