  • Last July, once, it was a very comfortable trip. This year's trip to Taichung, mainly to accompany the children to play, partial encounter WITH AUO family day, people burst to burst, we decided to go back to the land. It's important to have a good day! We're not going to be happy, we're going away, there's no rain! The back road is very good, self-use, along the road beautiful scenery, the road also has a beautiful. The nine-tunnel, the flower,slut, is our favorite part of the road. Within a year' time, re-open the ground, according to the heart, happy to receive!

  • This is a great bike activity to do with friends and family and I highly recommend it for a fun and easy weekend near Taichung. There's several kilometers of bike track that follows an old railway line and lots to see and do along the way. It can get really busy but it's still good fun. You'll find plenty of places to snack and grab a drink along the way - we had stinky tofu and then stopped for tea and cake at the end. Rental places to get a bike for the day are at the start and there are several bridges, railway structures and points of interest such as the large dam to check out.
  • Love the biking experience. The cycling trails were well maintained. Don't miss tunnel trail as it was the highlight of all. Bicycle rental shops are at the entrance, you can rent the bicycles on the spot.
