Back to the days that cigarettes were not common, people could not buy cigarettes easily as nowadays.

They needed to pick wild tobacco and made cigarettes by themselves, which cost a month. So they cherish every single cigarette.

Now, we live in big cities and we can get what we need very easily.

The more convenient our life is, the more connection to the land we lost.

Maybe someday kids will think that watermelons grow up on the trees.

These 3 days, let's slow down the tempo of life and figure out the lifestyle that we've lost.

Options

Kaluluan.Tobacco and Sea

From
NT$7,980
* The amount is subjected to the payment page.

The Highlight

From pick tobacco to handmade pipes. From observe the tidal to pick some shellfish for dinner from intertidal zone.

Every single part needs you to slow down and if you want to do anything quickly, you will lose the meaning of this itinerary.

For people in the tribe, life is the wisdom of how to get along with lands and the sea is like their natural market.

For us, lands are maps in books and the sea is so mysterious and beautiful.

If you have time, come and join us. Follow elders and learn how they get along with lands and the sea.
