Taichung ©
Known its good weather, Taichung boasts an interesting set of cultural attractions, including many temples showing the development of religious architectural styles in the area and forming focal points for most tours of Taichung.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Taichung: Wenwu Temple (in Yuchi) and Ren'ai Township (Cingjing Veterans Farm & Hehuan Mountain (Hehuanshan)). There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Kaomei Wetland, take a stroll through Rainbow Village Taichung, stop by Mark Taiwan, and engage your brain at National Museum of Natural Science.

To find maps, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, go to the Taichung trip planner.

Miyazaki, Japan to Taichung is an approximately 9-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Miyazaki to Taichung, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Miyazaki in December, with highs in Taichung at 24°C and lows at 15°C.
