Discover a different Taichung through the history of its buildings and the artistic streets!


This is a walking tour, depending on the group it can also be done by bicycle or - if necessary - it can be customized with taxi for those who do not like or cannot walk too much!! 

說明 Introduction

In the morning, meeting with your English-speaking guide at your hotel or other place TBD.
This tour will start with the Painted Animation Lane, a very short alley all painted by local artists following the theme of comics and cartoons. 

Next stop will be the Taichung Literature Museum: the Taichung Literature Museum used to be police quarters, which were built in 1932 during the Japanese colonial period. It consists of six buildings, which are used for permanent exhibitions, themed exhibitions, children's literature, workshops and lectures, themed dining area, and administration.

The Taichung second market, built in 1917, is divided in 6 sections; each section was dedicated to a category. It’s hexagonal design make it very special ( and easy to get lost! )
Time for lunch in this area, don’t miss the specialities that the market has to offer, noodles, dumplings and buns!

After lunch - and to digest (!) - you will walk till the Taichung Prefectural Hall - built in European style- which served as Taichung's City Hall for decades.

The walk will continue to Miyahara,  a red-brick architecture built by Miyahara Takeo, a Japanese ophthalmology doctor in 1927. It was the largest ophthalmology clinic in Taichung during the Japanese colonial period. Today, it is an elegant place with several pastry businesses. Wonderfully restorated, the building is a place full of history and wonder.

Crossing the old Taichung train station, the tour will end at the Stock 20;  built in 1930, it is the former railway warehouse; now it is an exhibition space & studios for rotating resident artists. Now Stock 20 is an active artists' village.

The tour will end here, your guide will help you to find a taxi to go back to your hotel.
