Yilan Community Development 3.0
Su’ao Township’s Chaoyang Community
Located in southeastern Su’ao Township, Chaoyang Community neighbors the Suhua Highway and Nan’ao Township. The Coastal Mountain Range, Chaoyang Guishan Mountain, and Wushibi Cape protect the seafaring locals. Each day at dusk, residents welcome the boats laden with their catch as they enter Wushibi. During the Japanese Colonial Period, people from Guanxi in Hsinchu moved to the area to produce camphor oil. They brought with them flags and seals to ward off diseases and bring blessings. Tianhou Temple was built, becoming the center of local religious life. The Danan’ao section of the Suhua Historic Trail and Chaoyang Trail have attracted many tourists in recent years. Through interviews with elders, information gathering, and even filming a documentary, residents are seeking a development vision that protects and improves the community’s landscape, ecology, and lifestyle.
