Autumn in Taiwan - Bald Cypress

We went out to see some autumn trees. The color of bald cypress didn't change much yet but already attracts visitors. We came to Beipu which is well known for Hakka culture. We also visited Beipu Old Street some time ago.

There is not much trees in Taiwan that would change colors in winter season. Mostly bald cypress or pines and maple trees are very popular in Autumn - Winter season. The trees will change to yellow and even red color after the weather become colder.

The place is not very far from Beipu Town, it's very easy to get there. Near the row of trees people made 2 ponds, each on every side. You can also take a look at nearby farm. I've also noticed some freshly plant maple trees but they didn't look very good now.
Beipu is also famous for planting persimmons. On the other side of the road you can also see some farmers drying fruits but the view isn't as awesome like dried persimmons in Xinpu.

One of maple trees already changed leaves to little gold color. Unfortunately the sky isn't blue today. If you walk down to the pond, you will see about 10 more trees.

Beipu doesn't have as many trees as Daxi Bald Pine Avenue in Taoyuan. The avenue must be really beautiful after the trees change colors more. In Daxi you can also see many tea plantations and visit tea factory. 
Daxi is one of 10 small tourists town in Taiwan. Daxi is famous for production of wooden furniture, dried tofu, mausoleum of Chiang Kai-Shek and his son Chiang Ching-Kuo.

Not far away this place you can also see Bald Cypress Forest which is also a popular place. We didn't go there yet, but maybe next January when the colder weather make the view more colorful.

Bald cypress are special because it's the only tree from this family that lose their leaves. The needle-like leaves turn yellow or copper red in autumn season. Bald cypress grows best in full sunlight and wet soil.
