If it weren’t for the large tour groups that descended upon Lukang Old Street, my experience would have been that much richer and enjoyable. I still managed to enjoy strolling the narrow lanes while admiring the many preserved ancient buildings. Take the time to enter...More

You can find both shop and carts featuring some of the local food. The famous item here is the "cow tongue biscuit" and the "almond powder drink". Look around, one of the almond is grind on the spot. That would be my recommended one.

I live in a country with many old streets, but it was still interesting to see how those old streets differ from each other. I love the temples scattered along, although the houses-converted-into-shops were not selling anything of particular interest. It was a nice stroll...More

There is not much choice in Lugang, the nearest town to stay would be Taichung or ChangHua. Both are around 30min by taxi to Lugang. Lugang is mostly closed in the evening, it is good for a day trip only.
