Experience Gaomei Wetlands during the late afternoon when you can catch the sea breeze and watch the sun disappear below the horizon. There is a 800-meter-long wavy boardwalk which was built to preserve the wetland to prevent people from walking on the muddy land. We walk out into the flat land during high tides at the end of the broadwalk as we watched the sun sets.

Tip: Before you go to Gaomei Wetlands, check the tidal forecast first.

①⓪ Rainbow Village

Rainbow Village is a military dependents’ village that was converted into street art. It was was created by former soldier, Huang Yung-Fu who began painting houses in his settlement, now known as Rainbow village, to save them from demolition. This quirky village is one of the most colorful spots in Taiwan and is a really fun place to visit. At 100 years old, Grandpa often makes an appearance in the village.

①② Taichung Second Market

The Second Market is famous for many kinds of Taiwanese cuisine with traditional breakfast food and rurou fan (魯肉飯). You also find thick and fresh sashimi. It was so good that we went back two days in a row.

①③ Night Markets

Night market is a main highlight for us almost every night. Our favourite night market is Feng Chai Night Market in Taichung and Shilin Night Market in Taipei. Lots of game stalls and food to try. Mainly cash apart from some shops that sell clothes. The night market closed around 11.30pm so you can definitely find somewhere to go after dinner.
