Synapticism

An experiential journal of synchronicity and connection

Xīluó 西螺 (also known as Siluo and sometimes even Hsilo) is a historic old town on the south bank of the mighty Zhoushui River in Yúnlín 雲林, Taiwan 台灣. Although it is seldom mentioned in the English language blogosphere Xiluo is one of the more interesting small towns to visit in west-central Taiwan. Yanping Old Street 延平老街 is a marvel of colonial architecture, the abandoned Xiluo Theater 西螺戲院 is a must-see for all fans of vintage cinema, and the iconic red iron trusses of Xiluo Bridge 西螺大橋 is quite scenic. It isn't nearly as developed as comparable destinations but it should appeal to anyone with an interest in Taiwanese history and local culture.
