The train station in Dacun Township in Changhua County has come alive with new installation art and decorations to let travelers know they’re in the heart of Taiwan’s grape industry.
The county government worked with the township on the project to freshen up Dacun Station’s look, which was completed in mid-May, to promote the upcoming grape harvest season and try to attract more visitors to the county.
Grapes are a big deal for Changhua County, which accounts for nearly half the grapes grown in Taiwan, and Dacun made the most sense for the promotion because it has the longest grape-growing tradition in the county, according to Changhua’s agriculture department.
Visitors are greeted at the entrance to Dacun station by a plastic grape doll figure, and they can enjoy posters with grape-related images as they go from the station hall to the train platforms. [FULL STORY]
