Recommendation

We spent nearly an hour here. It may not be worth the effort to make a trip here if you do not have private transport. This is because attractions here in Taichung tend to be difficult to get to due to the lack of a metro system. However, it’s a great place to admire if you happen to have this venue included in your city tour.
