  • Where during the day of the summer solstice midnight sun is directly over the Tropic of cancer? I went to Chiayi County of Taiwan, because the summer solstice 4 days after 7/25. Bus from Chiayi station (7205, 7209 7206, 7229 strains are either) to take in "Northern times". Tropic of cancer targets were erected during Japan colonial period four. This year off position of the Tropic of cancer, so it went like this. (Woman of the Sun was described. Japan speaking is) sixth Tropic of cancer targets is the Sun. Felt the tropical landscape and the views from the observation room. Well, at 12 o'clock and look up to heaven and Sun's glistening. The shadow of his shoulder's feet. Few shadows around "this is Tropic of cancer ' I felt.

  • Place for kids. There is not much to see. The solar exploration tower has some science experiments for school kids.
  • 一個極佳的留念拍照地點,可以讓自己上上廁所、洗洗臉,休息一下,繼續下一個目的地的好地方。
  • 環境規劃還不錯,航空展很吸引小朋友; 但3D有點老舊,感覺是台北市十幾年前的等級。
  • 11點前還不錯,再晚就會出現一堆“病人”,打針的,吃藥的,拉什麼的…
  • 地標特點動態是在吸引外星人來台觀光嗎,沒什麼藝術感,觀光地區別每次都在搞夜景燈光
