Taichung surprised me by its cultural diversity and bicycle-friendly core. I spend 4 days in Taichung exploring night markets and the following sights. Check out the locations, rent a bicycle or scooter and explore Taichung. I also recommend making a trip to the famous Sun Moon Lake by scooter or motorcycle.

Taichung is an industrial city on the west coast of Taiwan. From here, the mountainous interior of the island can be easily explored, including nature areas such as the Sun and Moon Lake, which is popular for boating and hiking. In the bustling city centre there are museums, temples and the artistically brick-built Taichung Station, a legacy of the Japanese colonial period (1895-1945)Google Search
