                  Clean, cozy and warmth!

                  It is my first experience to stay in B&B in Taiean and I must say Shire Homestay is an amazing place to stay. We enjoyed so much! The place itself is cozy with nice decor. (A good collection of liquor!) The room is very spacious and clean, of course. The host was kind and very keen to show us Yuilan. Her food was healthy and delicious. For travellers without vehicles, the free sightseeing vans operate by the local council is very helpful to get in between Ludong town centre and Shire.

                  Very nice owner who is an active and friendly person, also to share the Yilan visiting point. The room is clean and comfort with simple and nature decoration. At the sitting room, you can sit on the sofa and listen the musical CD, e.g. carpenter with drinking a cup of coffee for a day. There is a great homestay to relax, and nouish my spiritual towards the crazy city life person. My husband and I stayed to there for 3 night, we enjoyed our stay even heavy rain day by day.We are very recommend there to all..
