The second leisure farm we are visiting after the lunch is Da Keng Leisure Farm located in Tainan SinHua Dist. We only arrived at night from Hua Lu Flower Leisure Farm because we travel from MiaoLi to Tainan.

We eat as soon as we reach Da Keng and straight away gather at the dining area.

We all stayed at European Holiday Villa which is a balcony on its own and let us feel like we are in the European garden and close to the pigeons outside.

The bed is comfy and I had a good night sleep in there.
Eluba Boat House is southeastern Pacific style restaurant which is a cool place to chill and relax with Chia-Ling (a certified bartender) serving us with unique alcoholic drinks, hot pot, coffee and tea.
