If you're visiting Taiwan, don't just stick to Taipei — venture out to Taichung in central Taiwan to see its colorful, quirky, and artistic attractions, as well as its breathtaking natural wonders! Spice up your Instagram feeds and become your own influencer on this convenient tour, which will take you on a day trip from Taipei to some of Taichung's most photogenic locations. Meet your tour guide and driver at Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station in the morning, then enjoy a comfortable ride to Taichung in an air-conditioned vehicle. Your first destination in Taichung will be Chung-she Flower Garden, which is covered in colorful flower fields as far as the eye can see. Sit in the middle of the field to stand out amidst the beautiful flowers! You'll be greeted with another burst of colors at Rainbow Village, a former village for military veterans that was painted from corner to corner by Huang Yung Fu (nicknamed "Rainbow Grandpa"), himself a veteran. This place is a haven for both photographers and people who love to be in front of a camera! After visiting these two attractions that are filled with vivid colors, it's time for a sight that's more understated but no less gorgeous. Take in the next location not only with your eyes, but also with your other senses, as you enjoy delicious drinks and pastries at the refined Miyahara. Originally an ophthalmology clinic run by a Japanese doctor, Miyahara is now a cafe and shop that's famous all over Taiwan for its vintage interiors and delectable sweets. Stepping into this red-bricked building, you'll feel as if you're in a European bookshop or a fantasy world. Next, you'll briefly stop for a group photo at National Taichung Theater, an opera house designed by the famous Japanese architect Toyo Ito. Its distinctively curved surfaces are said to be no regular feat to build, so this structure is truly an architectural and artistic masterpiece. Don’t miss the chance to see it up close and enjoy the minimalist ambiance. The last stop before heading back to Taipei is the Gaomei Wetlands, where you can take a beachside stroll lined by a seemingly endless row of giant windmills stretching out into the horizon. After a long day of posting for and taking photos, it's time to ride back to Taipei. Kick back and relax, then alight at either Ximending commercial district or Zhongxiao Xinsheng Station to end the tour.
