Rural areas of Taiwan are great for finding well-maintained examples of Taiwan’s traditional houses.
Following a random alley down in southern Jhunan,
I stumbled across this neat and tidy traditional house:
Still being lived in I thought it was a great example of preservation.
A lot of the traditional houses you see that are still occupied today have that shiny new look to them, whereas here you had a house that maintained it’s classical heritage look but was still obviously well looked after.
The sort of look you only get with decades of care, as opposed to fixing years of neglect with some roof tiles and a new paintjob.
Kudos to the owners!
