Meiling Scenic Area is located in Nansi Dist.'s Wanciou Vil.. In previous times, it was called Siangjiao Mountain (Banana Mountain), but over time, the banana trees were replaced by plum trees.

When the former vice president Sie Dongmin visited this place, he saw that the whole mountain was bursting with plum blossoms, and changed the name to Meiling (plum peak). This is one of Taiwan's largest plum-growing areas.

The plum trees blossom every year from New Year's Day until mid January. At this time, the mountain is covered with fragrant plum blossoms.

This is Meiling's peak time for tourism. As you admire the abundant blossoms, don’t miss out on the local dish – boiled chicken with salted plums.
