◎Who we are
REST Book and Bed is a group of young people living in rural Nantou. We are gradually shaping a comfortable, friendly, and diverse environment, and we want to share with everyone our understanding of Puli, Nantou and Taiwan, especially what’s currently in progress in the rural villages of Taiwan. We also want to show other young people that moving back to the countryside doesn’t just mean farming if they bring their passion and flexibility.
We begin with reading, learning from books, social networks and communities. We connect local wisdom and traditional arts and hope to provide a broader view of Taiwan.
Puli, a town surrounded by mountains and spectacular scenery, is the geographical center of Taiwan. This is a place where tourists can easily discover traditional grocery stores and old buildings, but at the same time, it is also a well-developed town with easy access to transportation and sufficient tourism resources. Puli is home to many different ethnic groups and a rich ecosystem, which gives the town its unique charm─a living aesthetic that expresses a genuine love for the environment and the land.
