Since the residents of Duxingshi Village and Ju-Guang-Xin Village gradually moved out in 2007, the area has become the most representative military dependents’ community. The local government intends to transform the village into a cultural park. At present, there are Zhang Yu-Sheng Museum and Pan An-Bang Museum in the cultural park, attracting many tourists. In addition, Vision Workshop is another POI in Magong City. Originally a stable and renovated, it is hidden in Duxingshi Village and has a tranquil atmosphere. Tourists can pass through a door and around a concrete road to reach the workshop.
There are no protruding signs or eye-catching posters on the wall of the hall. The simple and unadorned look shows an old time style. You will find a small sign around the corner. Please trust it and follow the directions with a brisk walk to experience the unique charms of the special village. An air-raid shelter not far away tells historic vicissitude. The nursery was once full of children’s laughter and the clapboard manifests the characteristics of Japanese architecture. All of the information is available at the Information Station, which tells every visitor the story of times.
Located at the center of this park, the stable has historic values. The potential analysis, ecological and cultural aspects, future planning, positioning of each space and planning concepts of the Cultural Park are shown in Vision Workshop. It can also serve as a venue for meeting and small-scale activities.
A visit to the Workshop enables you to better understand the life in such a community in Penghu. The visitor direction and scale model of the cultural park and entire planning description can be found in the workshop. So, walk briskly and travel back in time with the melody of Grandma’s Penghu Bay.
“The hubbub from people, fresh, steaming buns and laughter on the street…” These scenes are memories of a military dependents’ community. The deep emotions still linger in the now empty village.
