After dodging scooters and navigating busy storefronts--which in Taichung only sometimes even have a sidewalk--this pedestrian friendly area came as a lovely relief. One can enjoy a 45-minute stroll among newer Taichung urban area, and visit the museums on either end. Plus public art along...More

We happened upon the square during a big festival hosted by the Rotary club. So the square was filled with booths and vendors, as well as a large performance stage.

Caowu is not only a Segway and "wiggly butt" (manual) scooter rental place, but it often has sales and events and weekend activities. Truly a hub of Taichung on weekends and close to many other activities, including bungee trampolines, during some festivals. Worth the trip...More

I find this long stretch fascinating. It's a park spanning between the city's two major museum's and then beyond. Along the path is a wide variety of shops and restaurants. It's just perfect for walks and jogs. Under different circumstances I would have walked there...More
