說明 Introduction

Pick up in the morning by private car with English Speaking licensed Guide/Driver at your hotel in Taichung or at the HSR Train station.

First stop is the Taichung National Theater, visit the theater and the futuristic roof.

 

The theater is designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito. Using the concept of the primitive caves and holes, Toyo Ito designed the world first and only Sound Cave Curved Wall for National Taichung Theater. There are no vertical and horizontal structures and it’s the world’s first curve surfaced hanging structure architect.

Second stop is the Rainbow Village a “one man show” painted by a very talented, and rather visionary, old veteran soldier, MR. Huang.

 

You will then take the road to Lukang. Lukang was an important sea port in the 18th century and 19th century. It was the most populous city in central Taiwan until the early 20th century.

The history of the town of Lukang has been characterized by rapid change. Lukang old town was once a bustling port during the Qing Dynasty in the 1600s and continued to be a thriving business center until 1895 when the Japanese came and shut down most of the trade with mainland China.  The end of Lukang came when the harbor, which has never been that deep and suitable for the larger vessels, silted completely. 
 

Today the city boasts over 200 temples dedicated to a wide variety of deities, such as Longshan Temple - which dates to 1786 - and Matzu Temple.

Lukang Old Street is filled by traditional Taiwanese style houses with carved doorways and windows, narrow streets such as the notably famed Nine-Turns Lane, thin red brick walls.
 

In the afternoon you will visit the Lukang Folk art museum and after having visited the town and tasted some of the amazing food in the old street, back to Taichung or train station!
