For newcomers to Taichung, it is well worth the trip. Taichung is the second biggest city in Taiwan with plenty of attractions such as the National Museum of Natural Science, Rainbow Village, various temples, parks, and if you are into milk tea, then Chun Shui Tang is a must. It is the famous shop that created the pearl milk tea. If you are in Taipei, travel to Taichung is quite easy with multiple transportation choices – bus, train, or high speed rail.
