This district is the heart of the fertile part of Jianan Plain. The land is nourished and irrigated with water from Wushantou Reservoir, which is in the shape of a beautiful coral reef. Upon arrival at the reservoir, this masterpiece by the technician, Hatta Yoichi, comes into sight. Furthermore, since the ecology in the headwaters is well conserved, Guantian in the same area has become a breeding place for
jacanas (tropical waders). People can easily catch sight of them fluttering around the fields of water caltrops. Madou is where the old-time Daofong Inner Sea (Lagoon) used to be, so traces of the down-to-earth old street and the port and quay can be found in the town. Daofong Lagoon Museum which resembles the Leaning Tower of Pisa catches people’s eyes, and the artistic atmosphere suffusing Tsung-yeh Artist Village in which the museum is located and the history of the town complements each other. The savoury rice pudding, a street food inside the markets, is definitely a must-eat for visitors discovering Madou. As for Siaying, its downtown area centres on a Dark Deity (a.k.a. Mysterious Heavenly Highest Deity) Temple. There are worshippers all year round. Next to the temple is a local destination famous for its village paintings, which combines Taoist temple culture and modern animation characters. The island-wide tea-smoked geese are the best souvenir for your family and friends.
