Choose from chocolate, cookies, and to the most traditional Taiwanese pastries, pineapple cake and sun cake. On the outside of the main store, there is a spot where you can buy Miyahara milk tea and coffee. Dawn Cake, a company that makes 臺東伴手禮 Taiwan’s most famous pastry, pineapple cakes, purchased the building and hired a specialized team to restore the old structure. Before you go to Taichung, take a look at my post on learning all my best tips for travelling to Taiwan.

We picked up some awesome stickers for our travel journal. The Yizhong night market was open every night we were there – from maybe afternoon until 10pm/12am depending on how busy it is. Is the night market open daily or just over the weekends? When she's not travelling, Sarah loves to spend time eating things, reading things and generally flopping about.

兩相好 (liang shiang hau–fried bread) costs 220NT per 600 grams, and 鹹蛋糕 (shian dan gau–salty cake) costs 150NT per 600 grams. These are two of their most delicious selections. They also sell 檸檬蛋糕 (ning meng dangao – lemon cake) 鳯梨酥 (feng li su – pineapple cake) and 老婆餅 (lau po bing – a sweet cake) by the piece for 20NT. 紅茶 – There is a no-name cart that has a yellow sign with black letters that say 紅茶 at 民意街53號 .

It’s a small stand with a white sign with red letters that say 向上水餃 . There are also two larger signs that are red with white letters that say the same thing. They sell boiled dumplings with pork filling for 2NT each.

There’s no specific opening and closing time, but since Huang wakes so early, I’m sure you could show up anytime in the daylight hours, but you wouldn’t be able to appreciate the artwork after dark. There are also two souvenir shops where you can buy hats, fans, umbrellas and more with Huang’s artwork. The shops are reportedly run by Huang’s grandson. While the village is free to visit, they supposedly accept donations. I didn’t see anywhere to do this, so we made a point of buying a few things. Also read my guides to Monster Village in Nantou and Gamcheon Culture Village in South Korea.

Taiwan became a province of Qing Dynasty China in 1885, and the city, named Dadun at the time, was named capital of Taiwan Prefecture, one of three prefectures in the newly created Taiwan Province. It was also initially designated as the provincial capital, and Qing official Liu Mung-chuan received the authority from the Guangxu Emperor to oversee development of the area. However, four years later, Liu was forced to “retire” by Empress Dowager Cixi, and the provincial capital was moved to what is now known as Taipei. Taichung (臺中; Tái-zhōng) is located in the west-central part of the island of Taiwan. It has a pleasant climate and a population of just over 2.6 million people, making it the second largest city in the country after New Taipei.

The focus of the tourist promotion is different for each week, with campaigns on accommodations, confectionery, souvenirs, bridal services, fashion, and food. The prizes also vary every week to stimulate travel and consumer interest. Tourists are also encouraged to download the app for augmented reality games to collect points in exchange for gifts at contracted stores. We’ve only been to Taiwan once, for three days in Taipei back in 2014. We weren’t expecting anything but to our surprise, that short stay was enough to make us fall in love with the city and its people. We’ve visited many countries in our travels but we felt a real connection here, like we were truly welcome. Many travelers have said that Taiwanese people are friendly.

It’s virtually in every travel guide and blog post about Taichung. Housed in an old opthalmology clinic that became Taichung’s Public Health Bureau before being turned into a pastry shop, Miyahara is famous for its desserts, most notably its pineapple cakes. Here’s a sample itinerary you can follow as well as a map indicating where each of these places are.

Unique upscale set meals with live music at night. This vendor is on Yizhong Street near the A-Sir tea shop. Its sign is black and with red words with the vendor’s name on it. They sell cold boiled food like blood rice cake, chicken leg, beans, tofu and meatballs. You put the items into a small basket yourself, and they chop it up and put into a bag for you to eat with skewers.

Started back in 2000 by a local farmer and a winemaker, the vineyard is slowly gaining recognition as one of the best producers of wine in Asia, with their wines winning many awards across the globe. Taitung is surrounded by mountains and the ocean, which nurtures abundant natural resources and produce.

These pure, natural and delicious specialties are the humble pride of Taitung. The biggest characteristic of Jing-Ming shopping area is its comfortable shopping environment. There are many coffee shops and special dishes with seats on the sidewalk. After going shopping, you can have a cup of coffee with your friends.

My "boyfriend," desperate to tie the knot, asked for her hand in marriage. This surprising development did not affect me much. What we had was nothing more than "puppy love." Souvenirs, such as umbrellas and prints, are sold in the village shop.

With the intention of pursuing a career in medicine, Gaby got her bachelor of science degree in psychology—and proceeded to follow her passion for writing instead. A former editorial assistant at Metro Society magazine, she loves to hear people's stories and tell them through her writing. I’d honestly never heard of Chun Cui He before, but I later discovered they’re actually pretty in-demand souvenirs. My own schoolmates actually stock up on these drinks and sell them at home! Needless to say, they get sold out here really quickly. One of the country’s most popular bottled drinks, they come in lots of flavours, including milk tea, latte, green latte, and Sumiyaki .

Be sure to try original tapioca tea when in Taichung. Moscato Oro Vino Fortificato is made from Golden Muscatel Grapes, which have been extensively grown ever since the study of Moscato Oro Vino Fortificato kicked off. What a magnificent souvenir with world-class taste that you definitely wouldn't like to miss when you're in town.
