About Dulan Retreat

Ming yearns for a special place where she could build a simple retreat. In 2009, having explored many places by the sea or in the mountain in Hongkong and Taipei, she stumbled upon Dulan. Described often as the back garden of Taiwan, it is sandwiched between the majestic Atolan mountain and the Pacific Ocean. It is the combination of the mountain, sea, sun, moon that lends this place its irresistible charm. This is it. Ming has found her secret garden.

By setting up Dulan Retreat, Ming can share her secret garden with people who are ready.

People who are ready to be inspired, to get involved, and to take action.
