The Hsinchu County government invested a total of NT$ 47 million in the construction of Zhang Xueliang’s former residence pavilion in Wufeng Township, with its appearance resembling Zhang’s contemporary residence back in Japanese colonial period, and the pavilion is furnished with antiques and historical documents, thus enabling visitors to further appreciate and understand Young Marshal’s old days in Wufeng. The pavilion is currently undergoing its construction and scheduled to announce its grand opening in September, 2014.
To create an antique, simple, safe and comfortable environment for leisure and recreation in Hsinchu County, the County government launched a comprehensive renovation project, aiming to carry out the construction of Zhang Xueliang Former Residence main pavilion, the renovation of General Hot Spring, the construction of bathrooms, guiding facilities and resting benches, and the vegetation and greenification. Featuring the in situ reconstruction of Young Marshal Zhang’s place of house arrest, Zhang Xueliang Cultural Park is now inviting visitors to roam around this historic site, to experience the fun of foot spa and to taste the local humanity and customs.
The Transportation and Tourism Department of the County government pointed out that the military hot springs are now open and free for visitors to use after going through the renovation in June, 2014 despite the fact that the hot springs were once destroyed by typhoon long time ago. Visitors are welcome to pay a visit to the hot springs to experience the fun of foot spa for relaxation of body, mind and spirit.
