Why came into life

Please use the ↓ email below ↓ for writing to (all of) us.

During su-pa’s Far East trip we were visiting Lanyu (Orchid Island) and got to know Willy Chen living and working with the Tao (local inhabitants). As the little pacific island’s environment is extraordinary and experiencing a lot of influences, we decided spontaneously to dare this intercultural experiment and create a website together.

Our project: the goal of website is providing information for people from all over the world about Lanyu’s nature and culture.
