► Visit the Six Arts Cultural Center, built in 1937 during the Japanese rule, it is a martial arts hall for daily training of martial arts officers and police. The original historical appearance is completely preserved, which is of great value for preservation, reuse and architectural research.

► 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. 

On the way to Gaomei you will stop is the Rainbow Village: a “one man show” painted by a very talented, and rather visionary, old veteran soldier, MR. Huang.

After the Rainbow Village, you will take the road to Gaomei Wetlands, a perfect place to enjoy the sunset and the cool breeze from the sea. Covering an area of 1,733 acres (701.3 hectares), Gaomei Wetland is a mix of mud and sand. It is a famous habitat for a diverse number of birds, fish, crabs, invertebrates, and plants.

You will have some free time to explore the area and discover the ecosystem and the little inhabitants of this land: the fiddler crabs.  They are really unusual as they have an extremely large claw.


► The tour will end at the National Theater and its futuristic roof.
