Engaging Features of Lin Kai District

    People have a natural propensity to settle down by the waterfront, and so did the residents of San Kio district in the past. By then, the livelihood of the residents was closely associated to Lin Kai (Lotus Stream) that flowed through the district. The farmers grew crops along its shores and fishermen sundried their fishing nets and implements over there. Others engaged in divination and prayed to the deities venerated in the temple adjacent to it for blessings. The everyday life of the residents was very easy-going and peaceful. But alongside socio-economic development, the stream disappeared due to land reclamation and roads were built. The lifestyle of the residents that used to live along its shores changed inevitably and the surrounding buildings were reconstructed. The sightseeing route of this itinerary starts with the site of the Lotus Stream and probes into the way how the residents of this district adapt to the changes in their environment over time.

Total walking time: 19 minutes
