This district is the heart of the fertile part of Jianan Plain. The land is nourished and irrigated with water from Wushantou Reservoir, which is in the shape of a beautiful coral reef. Upon arrival at the reservoir, this masterpiece by the technician, Hatta Yoichi, comes into sight. Furthermore, since the ecology in the headwaters is well conserved, Guantian in the same area has become a breeding place for jacanas (tropical waders). People can easily catch sight of them fluttering around the fields of water caltrops.
Madou is where the old-time Daofong Inner Sea (Lagoon) used to be, so traces of the down-to-earth old street and the port and quay can be found in the town. Daofong Lagoon Museum which resembles the Leaning Tower of Pisa catches people’s eyes, and the artistic atmosphere suffusing Tsung-yeh Artist Village in which the museum is located and the history of the town complements each other. The savoury rice pudding, a street food inside the markets, is definitely a must-eat for visitors discovering Madou.
As for Siaying, its downtown area centres on a Dark Deity (a.k.a. Mysterious Heavenly Highest Deity) Temple. There are worshippers all year round. Next to the temple is a local destination famous for its village paintings, which combines Taoist temple culture and modern animation characters. The island-wide tea-smoked geese are the best souvenir for your family and friends.
A short drive from the main road, Wusanto Reservoir possess a picturesque environment. Visitors can cruise around the reservoir by the solar powered boats; as well as walk along the dam leisurely. Good place for photography.

reviewed 7 January 2019 by Jennifer T
Interesting walk around the various buildings in the complex and the dragon was impressive. Unfortunately, Heaven was under repair and I wasn't so keen on Hell. The Kuanyin temple adorned with various bodhisattva is beautiful in its strangeness.
I was expecting Arabic food, but that is not the menu. There is a salad bar that comes with the meal, or you can order it separately. There are some warm dishes on the bar, as well as western style salad, drinks, and a coffee machine.
