Changhua rolls out tours for the elderly, physically challenged
Taipei, June 7 (CNA) The Changhua County government will organize
nine bus tour itineraries around the county from later in June to
November, with two specifically planned for the physically challenged
and senior citizens.
The guided tours have nine different themes, taking visitors to
Taiwan's largest jasmine field in Huatan Township, a sock tourism
factory in Ershui Township or historic family compounds in Xiushui
Township, among others.
In designing the tours this year -- the fifth year of the
initiative -- the county government put together tours targeting the
elderly and physically challenged.
Among them, elderly participants will be shown around a forest
park in Shetou Township and take a hot spring bath at another
recreation area in the township before visiting a huge garden in
Xizhou Township that was modeled after the acclaimed Fitzroy Gardens
of Melbourne, Australia.
The bus tours, to be held from June 21 to Nov. 30, include
half-day trips, one-day trips and two-day tours.
