What you can expect

Immerse yourself in the sunny atmosphere of Taichung, soaking up the bustle and looking back through time as you stroll through downtown with a local guide. Sample traditional sweets, experience the nostalgia of an old-timey market near the river, and step into the building that once housed Taichung's first bank.

Meet your guide at Taichung Station, checking out the turn-of-the-century architecture that dates from the era of Japanese rule. From there, make your way to Miyahara, a locally loved sweet shop selling everything from ice cream and pastries to chocolate and snacks. Order up bites of almond and date candy or a scoop of ice cream made with Taiwanese fruit, letting your guide help you read the sayings and proverbs printed on the wrappers.

Next, continue on to midtown's Midori-Kawa Market, a riverside cluster of shops and stalls. Enjoy the fair-like atmosphere as you get a taste of life in old Taichung, popping into decades-old shops as well as innovative new eateries, where you can purchase treats like popcorn chicken, suncakes, and shave ice if you'd like. Your last stop is at the DRF Goodot Village, where you can admire the high-end architecture and materials of the now-abandoned building that was once the first bank in Taichung.
