The 2014 Taipei Tourism Expo commenced on Friday last week. The Council of Indigenous Peoples (CIP) is promoting the “crazy about tribal communities — easy summer travel” package — a travel itinerary composed of trips to 10 Aboriginal communities. All you need is a tribal community tour passport, and after completing the journey to the 10 designated Aboriginal communities, mail the passport back to the council to receive a traditional Aboriginal outfit.

The route for the 10 tribal communities includes “being Atayal for a day” in New Taipei City’s Wulai District, “Aboriginal bliss” in Taoyuan County’s Fuhsing Township, the “Bunun community at Yushan” in Nantou County’s Hsinyi Township, “taking in Mudan’s summer flowers” in Pingtung County’s Mudan Township and the “Jingpu Community’s tribe of the sun” in Hualien County’s Fongbin Township.

Lin Chao-ping, a trustee at the Fuhsing Township Tour Guide Association, says that the trip to Fuhsing Township in Taoyuan County consists of getting your own personal Atayal name, learning how to make makauy-flavored (wild mountain peppercorn) crackers and getting to experience how Atayal catch and grill fish, all of which comes to a market value of NT$1,500 and is available at a discount price of NT$900 at the expo.
