Nanfangao is located at the southern tip of Yilan. It’s the first modernised fishing port in Taiwan. After more than 90 years of prosperity and recession, it is still one of the three major fishing ports in the country. There are legends and stories waiting to be discovered, and we are looking forward to her future transformation.

The New Days is a minimalist style hotel located in the center of the village. We provide an opportunity for travellers to get to know Nanfangao. The village is not too big, thus very suitable for a relaxed and slow-paced exploration. You will have new discoveries and new feelings every time you visit.

On the second floor of the hotel is the gallery “about:” which showcases different exhibitions every three months. Artists are invited to explore and reinterpret Nanfangao's character through their works, unveiling different ways to get to know a place. The magazine “about:” is the medium where we record these viewpoints and collect the sentiments, published simultaneously with the opening of each exhibition.

漁業のために生まれた町南方澳、百年来各地の人たちが海で稼ぐために、ここに移住してきた。この茫々たる海のなか、人々共通の心の拠り所は信仰である。南方澳の人たちは媽祖様は海人の安全を守っていることを信じています、各地から訪れる参拝者も同じことを願っています。その為、宗教と漁業は南方澳の最も重要な二つのことになりました。 Charlene Man の目から見ると、宗教は実に単純明快なことです、興味深い物語と上出来なグラフィックに過ぎないくらい、だが信仰は誰の心の中にもいるものです。こういった宗教に関わる関わらず、南方澳の生活の中に潜んでいる様々な信仰を彼女に見つけされて、絵にされました。
