    Rainbow Village

    Your next stop is Rainbow Village, which is considered the most Instagrammable place in Taichung.

    Rainbow Village, as its name implies, is a small village painted with vibrant colors. Originally a former military dependents’ village, it was the veteran and artist Huang Yung-fu, also known as “the Rainbow Grandpa”, who saved this village from demolition with art. Here you will see animals, people and many decorative elements painted vividly on the wall in every corner, as if you walk in to a fairy tale.

    Miyahara

    Next, the unique “ophthalmology clinic” Miyahara will amaze you with its Hogwarts lookalike interior design.

    Miyahara was originally an ophthalmology clinic, founded by the Japanese ophthalmologist—Miyahara during Japanese colonization. After the retrocession of Taiwan, the building was taken over by the government, then acquired and renovated by a local pastry company, which transformed this former eye clinic into a retro-style pastry and ice cream joint.

    Today, Miyahara is widely known for its vintage decorations and various flavors of ice cream. If you are a Harry Potter fan or have a sweet tooth, this place is unmissable.

  • 14:30-15:00

    National Taichung Theater (photo stop)

    Your tour continues with a stop at National Taichung Theater, an opera house designed by the famous Japanese architect—Toyo Ito. 

    The opera house is referred as one of the most difficult architectures to build in the world, because of its curved surfaces. Here you can enjoy a close-up view of this architectural masterpiece, appreciating every detail created with innovative construction methodologies by the master.

    Even if you are not here for an opera or a musical, the building itself will provide you with an extraordinary experience as you walk through it.

  • 15:30-16:30

    Gaomei Wetland

    Before the end of the tour, you will visit Gaomei Wetland, a well-preserved wetland located in the south side of Dajia River’s estuary. The wetland is endowed with natural resources; the diverse geographical features result in the abundance of ecological species, also making it one of the best spots for bird watching in Taiwan.

    Gaomei Wetland is well-known for the sunsets. Walking along the boardwalk at sunset, with the silhouette of the windmills on the background, creates an endless view in the far horizon. Whether you are traveling solo or with family and friends, Gaomei Wetland is undoubtedly a perfect location to snap a selfie or group photo.
