Located in the mountains of Liugui in Kaohsiung, Baolai Community is rich in tourism resources like its famous hot springs, rafting, and local Chinese plum orchards, which attract hoards of tourists in early spring to delight in the plum blossoms. Despite this, local tourism has dramatically changed since the Morakot typhoon disaster in 2009, when over two meters of rain was dumped in the blink of an eye. The typhoon's onslaught caused devastating landslides and flooding in Kaohsiung’s mountains, destroying roads and the once-booming tourism industry.

The rebuilding of roads in the area has a long way to go, but Baolai residents refuse to give up. Baolai Community has worked unflinchingly over the last nine years to become a model for other communities and is a reminder to everyone about the cost of natural disasters.

宝来社区位于高雄六龟山区,拥有丰富的观光资源,以温泉和泛舟闻名。冬末春初时,当地更是梅子的盛产地,吸引许多观光客前来观赏梅花。但这个观光小镇,却因为88风灾一夕剧变。88风灾带给高雄山区,超过2000毫米的惊人雨量,这惊人的雨量,使得高雄山地引发山崩土石流,许多山区乡镇,因洪水及土石流沖断了联外多处道路,过去繁荣的观光产业已不复在。

重建之路一路走来相当颠颇,但宝来居民始终没有放弃。至今宝来社区已经努力了九年,灾后重建的宝来是最好的範例,同时也带给大家最深的警惕。
