Taichung, Taiwan: What to see and do

Up to 2.7 million citizens make up the populace of Taichung, affording the city’s ranking as the third largest among the island of Taiwan’s five special municipalities. The emergence of Taichung as a consolidated metropolis after the integration of its respective City and County in 2010 has cast its urban sprawl into a recent paradigm of rejuvenation and sprucing up of sorts, in efforts of moving past its affectionately christened persona as the Mechanical Kingdom.

Located within the central district of Taiwan’s West coast and covering an expanse twice the size of Hong Kong, the broad breadth of Taichung houses a conglomeration of panoramas, among which lie the mountain terrains of the Dongshi and Heping districts wherein tribal congregations of Hakka and Atayal peoples reside respectively, as well as the Beitun District and its constituent Dakeng Scenic Area where nature hikes come illuminated with firefly sightings between April and May. Piquing the fancy of more urban-friendly folk, Taichung’s cityscapes extend the verdant reach of nature as aforementioned revitalising efforts yield expansions of green spaces and eco-friendly measures throughout town. City planning within the town’s tract comes with the fortification of parks, such as the ZhongShan Park that stands as a serene array of paved garden walkways encompassing the waters of a natural pond-lake lined with trees both towering and curved bonsai-esque, as a twin-tipped summer pavilion dots the centre as it always has since 1908. Beyond scenic park walks, travellers can have excursions immersed further within the embrace of nature through cycling journeys in Metropolitan Park, amid various ponds and colonies of acacia trees enlivened with sights of water fowl, squirrels, and other timid inhabitants.

The revision of Taichung’s city infrastructure also brought with it a spur of repurposing among historic buildings and worn architecture, manifesting through novel uses of space such as those exhibited in the CMP Block Museum of Arts. Formerly an unfulfilled department store stretch, the square now brims with artistry and life through displays of public installations and monthly art themes, bedazzling alongside specialty stores and branded outlets. Delving further into aesthetic wizardry and occasionally outlandish visuals, Taichung gratifies one’s hankering for culture and art via institutions such as its National Museum of Fine Arts - a three-storeyed compendium of Taiwanese and international creative craftsmanship housing collections that showcase recent trends in contemporary art, as well as a plethora of pieces and cross-disciplinary performances. Culminating in up to 30 unique exhibits yearly, the museum’s vibrant tapestry of crafts is but a few of Taichung’s current traits that hold true to its manifestation as a Cultural City since the 1920’s.
