What you can expect

Try out the tastes of Taichung on a freewheeling tour that shows you the sights of the city's downtown. This bicycle ride takes you along lively backstreets and between bustling markets as you get to know the best of local life.

Once you meet your guide and pick up your bike, get started with a ride from the grand, century-old Taichung Railway Station building and through the byways of the city center. Check out the historic architecture around you as you pass the State Library and the old Chang Hwa Bank dormitory building, and then stop in at the Chun Shui Tang tea shop to try out some of its famous Taiwanese bubble tea.

As you ride on, your guide shares stories about sites like the police training ground, prison dormitory, and schools that date back to the years of Japanese rule. Get a look at the city's first elementary school before you reach the Fifth Market, where you can explore more than 100 stalls and try out some of the delectable fresh food. The tour winds down with a visit to the National Museum of Taiwan Literature, where you can enjoy beautiful literary works from the island and mainland China before you head back to the station.
