City of Humanism

Chiayi city locates on the area of Tropic of Cancer, therefore in Chiayi city we have both tropical and subtropical features. Sun has been guarded this city for three hundred years. Plenty sunshine and rain and the average temperature around 23 degree Celsius make this city a good place to live and work. The development of Chiayi city is always related to sun and humanism. Dutch and Zheng Chenggong came here and built foundational measures during 17th century. In 1704 the emperor Kangxi set the government office here. In 1787 Zhu Luo citizens fought against the revolution so the emperor Qianlong renamed the place for Chiayi as a reward. In 1906 Chiayi was seriously damaged in a big earthquake, therefore Japanese hired English architects to reconstruct Chiayi and made it as a trade center of wood business in Ali Mountain. The Chiayi Park which has been persisted for almost 100 years is like a historical miniature of the city of sun. We present you common people’s snacks in the time of Qing dynasty and Japanese colonial period. Delicate Paintings and Art of Koji Pottery not only increase our values in art but further present the essence of humanism. Thence, the famous writer Shu Guozhi said Chiayi city is the most interesting city in Twaiwan. The 406th CommonWealth Magzine published in September, 2008 indicated this sunny city as a “city of humanism”.
