Hi,

I would like to check if miaoli's lavender farm is like sinshe which has a lavender field?

May i know if it is possible to make a day trip to both strawberry and lavender farm in a day? Are they near?

Could someone advise me on the transport?

Thank you.

There are public buses from Taichung city to 中興嶺 Board Fongyuan bus (豐原客運), Renyou bus (仁友客運) 31 displaying “台中車站─中興嶺”in front of Taichung Railway Station. Alight at ”中興嶺”stop. From there, take a short cab ride to Lavender Cottage Farm at Shin-she, Taichung County.

Hi sillywawa,

Lavender Cottage Farm in Mingteh, Miaoli County is not easy to access by public transport. Board a cab at Miaoli Railway Station to Lavender Cottage Farm in Mingteh.
