Located where the Tropic of Cancer cuts across Taiwan, the Monument of Tropic of Cancer, Chiayi is the world's 10th Tropic of Cancer marker (although it was originally built during the Guangxu Emperor's 34th year of reign before being rebuilt in 1995). The marble monument marks cultural and scientific information, defining where the equator falls and denoting other lines that portion the earth into five zones based on temperature. Consider also visiting the solar exploration center nearby, where children can engage in learning about science. Put the Monument of Tropic of Cancer, Chiayi and other Chiayi attractions into our Chiayi holiday planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • 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
