Add To Plan

Experience the spiritual side of Taiwan by meditating at a renowned Buddhist retreat, followed by an exploration of Taiwanese artistry at the esteemed Juming Museum.

Depart from the pier and enjoy a leisurely drive to northeastern Taiwan, where you'll find famed Dharma Drum Mountain, a collection of Buddhist monasteries and educational centers. Founded by Master Sheng Yen in 1978 to "uplift the character of humanity and build a pure land on earth," the spiritual complex is an inspiring setting. While here, you'll spend an hour or so meditating in a way that encourages spiritual enlightenment. You'll also learn about the teachings of the late Master Sheng Yen, who wrote more than 100 books and traveled the world spreading the doctrines of Buddhism in a highly relevant manner.

Following your visit at Dharma Drum Mountain, you'll drive to a local Taiwanese restaurant where you'll enjoy a lunch featuring traditional Taiwanese cuisine. Afterwards, you'll continue on to the Juming Museum, named for the celebrated Taiwanese sculptor Ju Ming. The country's only outdoor sculpture museum, it offers a wonderfully natural, mountainside setting where much of the artist's modern work is displayed. There are also interior spaces devoted to Ju Ming's art and works by his teachers and other artists, such as Picasso and Warhol.

Although originally a woodcarver, Ju Ming later developed his skills even further and applied them to media as diverse as stainless steel, ceramics and Styrofoam. He funded the museum himself and was also intimately involved in designing its architecture and landscaping. After your visit, you'll return to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 3 hours of moderate to strenuous walking that includes numerous steps and some inclines. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests or those with mobility concerns. Casual layered clothing that allows for free movement; sun cap; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The Juming Museum is closed on Mondays.
