the Monument of Tropic of Cancer, Chiayi, Chiayi

(2.5/5 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.

  • ㄧ個顯著的地標,可以從很遠的台一線上就可以遠遠的看到了。很適合大小朋友開車ㄧ同前往。或是延鐵馬道騎腳踏車前來也有ㄧ個不一樣的感受喔!  more »
  • 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  more »
