Lukang

Lu-kangis situated at the edge of the coastal plain on the west-central coast of Taiwan. In local parlance it means deer harbor.It derives its name from the fact that wild deer roamed the then-undeveloped plains around the town. In the distant past Lu-kang was one of Taiwan's 3 most important harbors. Because of severe silting of the sea and the Lu-kang River, today it is placed some distance from the shore.

The best known of crafts in the region is woodworking, fan making, incense manufacture, tin sculpture, and lantern making. In fact Lu-kang boasts of more recipients of Living Heritage awards than anywhere else in Taiwan. On a trip to Lu-kang one can see these highly skilled artisans at work.
