Lan Yu Things to Do: 11 reviews and 11 photos
Although Chinese cement block housing has taken over much of the island, you can still find a group of the old style Lanyu housing on the south east side of the island.
The old style houses are half build into the ground and fortified with stone. (Presumably to protect the locals from the many typhoons that pass along this way....)
Even these old houses havent escaped the trappings of modern civilization, tho'.. (Note the electric meter on this house....)
