n the last three decades, Taichung's old city, once overlooked, has staged a triumphant comeback, thanks to the revitalization of two rivers, Liuchuan and Green River. These waterways have breathed an ineffable vitality into the city, coupled with the influence of Japan's urban renewal, transforming it into a modern hub for everyday life. The bustling First, Second, Third, and Fifth Markets have become epicenters of urban dynamism, while the rivers offer delightful recreational spaces, and the architecture instills a profound pride in locals, a tangible connection to their growth and heritage in this vibrant locale.

Immerse yourself in a sensory journey through this experience, connecting with water, people, architecture, and local stories.

Professional Guided Tour: 2 hrs

1917 Taichung Train Station-A train station from the vibrant Meiji era, a living testament to Taichung's splendor! Let's delve into the lively tale of how this building and railway reshaped the fate of Taichung.

1927 Miyahara Sweet Shop-What's the connection between ophthalmology and desserts? In this whimsical, magical setting, let's embark on a lively journey to discover how a once-fated building springs back to life!

1908 Shinse Bridge-A seemingly ordinary bridge turns out to be a century-old structure, revealing intricately carved marks of the past "Little Kyoto." Allow me to tell you, why was it built? And what distinguished guests has it hosted?

1912 Green River-The river carries the history and culture of the city. Beneath its glamorous facade, however, lies a past shunned by many. Once derogatorily referred to as the "Stinky Drain," it has undergone a profound metamorphosis. What kind of story is concealed behind its now radiant exterior?

1915 Sakura Bridge-As spring departs and summer arrives, autumn harvests and winter conceals, much like a slumbering beauty. Beneath the romantic bridge's name, who has veiled the traces of its existence?

2019 ASEAN Square-Once a thriving hub of commerce and entertainment, it plummeted into the depths of despair due to an unexpected incident. Let me narrate how it transformed into the vibrant ASEAN Square that we see today, brimming with exotic charm.

1948 Herbal Street-Shennong(the God of farmer) unhesitatingly subjecting oneself to the verification of the medicinal properties of plants, enduring hardships to taste a hundred herbs. We will lead you into the inconspicuous alleyways, sipping the wisdom and perseverance of a century. Together, we imbibe the black liquid that holds the essence of a hundred years of well-being.

1909: Taiwan Suncake Museum-What extraordinary individual could boast a private residence as enchanting and grand as a train station? Let us take you on a lively journey through the historical fusion of pastry culture and century-old landmarks, creating sparks of awe and wonder at every turn!

1966 4th Credit Union"In the masterpiece of architecture where desserts collide with concrete, old photographs in the stairwell tell tales of a bygone era. Push open the gates of the vault, and let us guide you into the secrets hidden by the hands of time."
