Sanyi Wood Sculpture Museum | 三義木雕博物館

In the early years, religious statues and handicrafts dominated the wood carving output in Sanyi. Recently, however, the industry has shifted to more personalized works of art with a steady stream of creative innovations on various themes. The Sanyi Wood Sculpture Museum puts a well-deserved spotlight on traditional Taiwanese woodcarving artistry and aims to let the art form shine on the international stage. The museum’s architecture juxtaposes vertical construction design with horizontal wall coverings of wooden planks whose natural wood grain patterns are accentuated to echo with the museum’s homage to woodcarving art.

A historic site of third grade Shengxing Railway Station shows the construction wizardry of the past. Completely clad in wood, not a single nail was used on the girders. Longteng Bridge, located not far from the station, was built with geopolymers ingeniously mixed with sticky rice to reinforce durability. A calamitous earthquake destroyed most of the bridge, and what remained after the quake are two great piers that tincture the landscape with beautiful decay.

Dongfeng Green Corridor in Dongshi was the first bicycle path in Taiwan built on an old railway line. It stretches about 12 kilometers, linking the towns of Fengyuan and Dongshi. The tree-lined bicycle path resembles a beautiful green tunnel. The route passes attractions such as Shigang Dam, Shigang Railway Station, and Meizi Iron Bridge. At the start of the bicycle path and at Shigang Dam you will find bike rental operations.

The start point of Dongfeng Bicycle Greenway links with Houfeng Bikeway. Stretching 4.4 kilometers from Fengyuan to Houli, Houfeng Bikeway follows the route of an old railway line as well. Along the way, attractions include an old iron bridge across the Dajia River and the No. 9 Tunnel. Combined, the two bicycle paths form the most popular cycling route in central Taiwan. Each bicycle path has its own characteristics and offers riders different experiences as they pedal along with the wind in their hair.

Miyahara | 宮原眼科

Situated close to Taichung Railway Station, Miyahara is a red-brick building built in 1927 by Miyahara Takeo, a Japanese ophthalmology doctor. After the end of Japan’s colonial period in 1945, Miyahara became the temporary home to the Taichung Health Bureau. As time passed by the building fell into disrepair. Fortunately, a pastry company renowned for its pineapple cakes, acquired the building and preserved Miyahara’s original red-brick walls and archway. Visitors to Miyahara are not only recommended to appreciate the details of the historic architecture but also try ice cream, bubble tea and pastries.

National Taichung Theater | 國家歌劇院

The National Taichung Theater was designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito. Based on a “sound cave” concept, elements such as curved-wall units and air holes were used to build this beautiful theater. The result is a newfound building that stands on its own firmly without supporting pillars or 90-degree walls. The architecture of the National Taichung Theater is a work of art. The theater’s performing venues and garden are unique, too. It is worth paying a visit here for an artistic feast, from the inside out!

Shen Ji New Village | 審計新村

Shen Ji New Village is a dorm compound built by the Taiwan Provincial Government nearly half a century ago to accommodate employees of the auditing office. As the government restructured, the dorms were left unused for years. With the government’s revitalization plans, the historic village was transformed into a lively and innovative base for young entrepreneurs to start their businesses. With new dwellers, Shen Ji New Village now thrives as a cultural and creative center attracting visitors to its cluster of distinctive shops and studios. From time to time a creative market is held on weekends.
