照亮文冬
I speak English, Mandarin

Bentong was the town of tin mining and rubber tapping in the old times and has attracted lots of Chinese people settle down in Bentong. Now, some of the traditional trade are still surviving through the 2nd or even 3rd generation, however some trades were eliminated though the change of the world.

Walk along the old streets with us and listen to the stories behind which were being untold. Recall the culture and historical value of an old town, which has built for more than 100 years. For this time, we have invited some artists to create some provisional performance along the guided walk.

After the walk, you may join the Mid-Autumn Festival at Bentong Town, by having a Tanglung Walk with the locals, and watch a local stage performance by the locals.

作为锡矿与塑胶开采的老城镇文冬,过去吸引了大批中国南下工作的华人到此定居。目前,文冬仍然保留了部分的老行业并传到了第二、甚至第三代人的手中。然而,也有部分的传统老行业已经随着时代的脚步而被淘汰。

我们将带您走入文冬老街,叙说百年老镇文冬过去的小故事。这次的导览亦特别邀请了几组艺术家加入,特别为导览路线的特色景观进行即兴表演。

除了参与老街导览,您也可以参与当晚《照亮文冬》中秋嘉年华的系列人文活动,与当地人一起提灯笼游行,观赏结合中秋与文冬故事的艺文表演。
