Taichung City, simply known as Taichung, is a special municipality found in Taiwan’s central region. The city ranks second-most populous in the country, with an estimated population of 2.82 million residents. Taichung serves as the center of the metropolitan area of Taichung-Changhua and is listed by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network as a “Gamma level” global city.
Found within the Taichung Basin, Taichung went under the Japanese rule from 1895 to 1945. During this period, the city was dubbed the “Kyoto of Formosa” due to its serene beauty. The Japanese heavily developed the city and transformed Taichung into a major cultural, economic, and commercial center.
Once purely industrial, Taichung has quickly become a tourist hub and one of Taiwan’s most popular and visited cities. Because of its pleasant climate year-round, cultural attractions, and incredible scenery, people from all over the world come to see and experience the best of Taichung.

Top Things to Do
Taichung is a city known for its cultural attractions, lovely nature, buzzing night markets, diverse culinary scene, and some of the friendliest locals in the world. If you want to see the best of what Taichung has to offer, here are some of the top things you should do:
Taipei has a notable list of museums and it might be difficult to choose which ones to visit, especially if you have little time to spare. To help you narrow down your options, these are some of the city’s must-see museums:
National Museum of Natural Science: Established in 1986, the National Museum of Natural Science is one of the city’s biggest attractions and is highly popular with both residents and foreign visitors. A space that piques your curiosity, the gigantic facility houses permanent exhibitions in different categories such as botany, zoology, anthropology and geology. Other highlights include a science center, an IMAX theater, global environmental hall, and botanical garden. (Bag policy: Guests are not allowed to carry big bags or luggage inside the museum. Instead, look for a Bounce partner near the area and stow your luggage there.)
National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts: Located in the city’s West District, the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, or simply NTMOFA, is a four-story museum that hosts a large collection of contemporary art from both Taiwanese and foreign artists, such as the famous Japanese creator Yayoi Kusama. The museum is also surrounded by the Public Outdoor Sculpture Park, which has over 40 stunning sculptures and 50 calligraphy stone tablets. Aside from the modern art displayed in 16 galleries, the facility also houses a library, a tea house, and a souvenir shop. (Bag policy: Guests of the museum are not permitted to bring luggage with them inside the museum. To avoid any inconvenience, look for a Bounce partner nearby and deposit your items there.)
921 Earthquake Museum of Taiwan: On September 21, 1999, Taiwan’s center was hit by a 7.3-magnitude earthquake that left severe damage in the nation. Situated in Wefung District, the 921 Earthquake Museum of Taiwan is a facility that displays the ruins from the earthquake to bring awareness to how important it is to be prepared in case a natural disaster strikes again. (Bag policy: The museum imposes size limits on the bags of visitors. In case you need to store your luggage somewhere, find the nearest Bounce location and drop off your stuff there.)
Taichung has an excellent shopping scene that involves a lot of shopping streets and night markets that sell all kinds of products. Make the most out of your shopping experience in the city by visiting the following spots:
Yizhong Shopping Street: The most popular shopping spot in the city, Yizhong Shopping Street is a great way to get a glimpse of Taichung’s student life. That’s because the area is especially popular with students from neighboring schools. At Yizhong, you will find plenty of street food stalls and tea shops as well as fashion boutiques and a Chungyo Department Store.
Jing Ming First Street: Often referred to as Taiwan’s version of the Champs-Elysees in Paris, Jing Ming First Street is the sole pedestrian-only street in the city. In this 100-meter long street, you will find a good amount of boutiques, galleries, coffee shops, food stalls, and restaurants. This vibrant street also hosts outdoor performances during the weekends and on holidays.
Feng Chia Night Market: Named after the nearby Feng Chia University, this market is one of Taichung’s most prominent night markets among locals and tourists and one you have to visit when in Taichung. Here, you can find some reasonably-priced street food and hip boutiques that sell trendy products.

Bubble tea: Taiwanese bubble tea, also known as boba tea, is part of the local culture and you’d be remiss not to have a cup or two while in Taichung.

Convenient to the Met, which does not allow luggage at coat check. Very easy check in and check out process, with lovely people at the front!
This was so cool!!!! Great service, extremely easy to use, and totally affordable! I didn't know where I'd leave my luggage while we explored San Fran, so I easily Googled luggage storage and found this company. At first it was a little odd dropping my bag off at a chocolate store, but the lady at the register was able to immediately pull up my reservation without any problems and then she put a lock on my suitcase and gave me a card to get it back with. She pushed the bag to the back of their storage room and I came back about 6 hours later to pick it up. Great service, I will definitely be using this again when I travel!
Can’t believe I haven’t used this service until now. So easy & convenient. I 100% recommend.
