Historic site where the gate to enter Hsinchu still stands. Now it's a walking and performance area.

An old structure in the middle of some new traffic. It's a good quick stop while walking to the night markets.

The East Gate is a cute little structure you can see in center Hsinchu...but surrounded by a traffic circle fed from many, many streets. You'll have a hard time crossing to see up close, but a look from across the road seems fine for this...More

This gate is the last major piece of HsinChu City's past. It is well maintained, and easy to get too. Be careful with traffic since this sits in the center of downtown. Enjoy, ExploreTraveler

This was a nice walk destination from the Ambassador Hotel. An evening hangout for local teens practicing their break dancing and coordinated dance moves.

Hsinchu's East Gate is a central and pivotal fixture in Hsinchu City. What was once the entrance to the walled city, is now a historic site and community square fit for dancers, performers, and sight seers. Be dazzled by the moves of the dancing subculture...More
