the Monument of Tropic of Cancer, Chiayi, Chiayi
(2.4/5 based on 45+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 小時候還沒有新的大地球,路過都會看見尖尖高高的紀念碑。現在整修後像一個公園,裡面也有介紹地球科學新知,假日走走的好選擇 
  • 剛好五年級社會課程介紹到嘉義北迴歸線,公園裡有太陽館可以了解天文知識。該公園有停車場可停。對於小孩沒來過,可以讓他了解一些自然知識。 
  • 這邊像一個嘉義的天文博物館,小小的但很有特色,工作人員也許是訪客太少了所以有點生硬。但致於不親切,適合帶小孩來
