Known its good weather, Taichung boasts an interesting set of cultural attractions, including many temples showing the development of religious architectural styles in the area and forming focal points for most tours of Taichung.
Step out of Taichung to go to Changhua City and see Sector Garage, which is approximately 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Gaomei Wetland, engage your brain at National Museum of Natural Science, make a trip to Tunghai University, and hike along Dakeng No.2 Trail.

Make your Taichung itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.
