Project Overview

Domestic wood carving industry developed, so there is 'Taiwan carved kingdom' of the nickname. In addition, Sanyi is also one of the major Hakka settlements in Taiwan. The territory's Hakka population ranks the majority of ethnic groups (about 90%) with Hakka as its main dialect. It is a four-county cluster with Hakka culture as its theme industry. Apart from woodcarving and Hakka culture, a number of railroad tracks centered on Sheng Hsing Station are still left in the township due to the crossing of the Shatin Old Mountain Line of Sanyi Township. Therefore, a railway-themed tourist trend has been gradually developed.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

We must overcome the problem This is the first time we participated in the production of web pages based on the teachers' suggestions. At that time, the website was a bit strange to us and it made us feel very happy and contradictory. However, we as a pedestrian believe that 'everything in the world is a problem that can be solved.' With the guidance and guidance of the teacher, we began to bravely try with keen interest and modesty. Our two months of hard work paid off and we finally succeeded. Although our website is not satisfactory, we have a sense of accomplishment. Through this activity, we not only improve our social skills, but also learn what we can not get in class. In addition, we also recognize the importance of working together during the talks, searching for information and designing web pages online.
