Tunghai University, Xitun

Landmark · Tourist Spot
Visit the second-oldest and the first private university in Taiwan at Tunghai University. This establishment boasts a peculiar-looking Christian chapel that resembles a cone, as well as landscaped lawns, impressive school buildings, and even its own dairy shop. All dairy products come from the university's own cows on campus, so make sure you try the organic milk or ice cream. If you visit while school is in session, don't be surprised if the students stop you to chat and practice their English. Make Tunghai University a centerpiece of your Taichung vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Taichung travel route planner.

  • The most beautiful university campus in Taiwan! Located in the slope of Dadu Mountain overlooking Taichung City also has the largest campus. Established in 1955 famous for it’s chapel with the shape of a folded praying hand, is host to more than 16,000 students.
  • I strongly recommend everyone to visit this beautiful school in which you can release your stress and hang out with your friends or family almost a day.
  • The University compound is so huge. It is open for public to visit as there is a famous attractions building inside the compound, the Luce Memorial Chapel. However, the Chapel only open on certain time if you wish to enter the building. Besides, there is a dessert store that selling milk related products named 乳品小站, the products included ice cream and drinking milk, the milk only available in big bottle but the paper cup is provided and oven is prepared for warm up it. One thing that I like so much about this place is the lush grass, feel so relaxing when laying on it.
  • I love the little shop which sells best milk there
  • Campus with great beauty designed by Taiwanese architect 陳其寬 and American architect IM Pei
